The History of G&S Valves
G&S Valves Ltd. was founded on July 13th 1946 by Mr. Harry Grenside and his partner Mr. Ralph Saunders, the company was originally known as G&S Motors located in a small factory in Milford, Surrey, England.
In 1947 G&S Valves acquired its first major customer, Petters of Staines. By 1959 the work load had increased so much that new premises had to be found. This was to be a purpose built factory in Catteshall Lane, Godalming, when the name changed to G&S Valves.
Over the next few years the range of valves produced was increased to include those for competition engines and racing cars as well as for the English motor cycle industry. During this time they earned a reputation as a high quality engine valve manufacturer, supplying the likes of:
•Ford Competition Department
•and many others.
In 1974 Mr. Robert Grenside & Mr. Neville Nichols took over control of G&S Valves Ltd. and continued to improve quality of the valves produced. 1980 saw the purchase of a Forge, based in the West Midlands, which Mr. Trevor Abbotts, formally from TRW, took control of this new acquisition allowing us to make purpose made forgings for the ever increasing valve business.
Due to the increasing complexity of some of the shapes required by some of our racing customers, G&S Valves had to purchase a number of CNC Lathes and Grinders to produce these new designs. With this came the need to install a CAD system to create the drawings needed.
In 1991 Mr. Andrew Grenside joined the company and used his knowledge in computers to set up this new system. This new set-up has improved the production techniques and quality of all of valves produced at G&S, and is looking forward to new challenges in the forthcoming years.

What We Do
G&S Valves Ltd. can offer you a complete valve, from start to finish. We hold a comprehensive stock of high quality valve steels and can upset forgings from a vast range of die forms to produce suitably close limit forgings to suit most applications. We have the facilities to perform various types of heat treatments, bi-metal valves and hard cobalt based deposit seat facing.
Our manufacturing process starts life as a plain steel rod which is then electrically upset to form a bunt, then forged into a close limit forging. After being forged the valve goes through a number of machining and grinding operation before final inspection in our quality department.
After final inspection, we can offer a pulsed plasma treatment (in house) as well as various treatments.
After treatment surface hardness is then checked in our metallurgy lab.
Before final inspection in our quality department.
