About us

Welcome to Thorite, the UK's leading supplier of air compressors, air tools, pneumatics and process products. We offer customers the most comprehensive range of market-leading, cost-effective equipment in the UK to meet the needs of MRO (maintenance/repair operations), end users, original equipment manufacturers and resellers. Our services include advice, pneumatics system design, installation, and we offer the most competitive prices.

We specialise in the maintenance and repair of air compressors, air tools and air operated diaphragm pumps.

Thorite's 150+ year history has enabled us to build a wealth of knowledge and strong relationships with both customers and suppliers. Since those humble beginnings we have developed into an 11 branch operation across the north of England. With a multi-million pound global sales operation operated through our national distribution centre, branches, and our webstore, we offer our customers the most comprehensive access to quality compressed air and fluid control products.

We can provide all of your compressed air and fluid power needs from a small fitting to a major compressor plant installation, supply and service package providing a true 'one-stop shop' solution.

As active members of the British Compressed Air Society (BCAS) we are at the forefront of the compressed air industry, maintaining our position as the leading compressed air and fluid power supplier in the UK.

A core principle of Thorite’s growth over the years has been geographical expansion, and we’re keen to continue that. If you are looking to sell your business or think you could help us open a new branch in your area please contact Stephen Wright on 01274 663471.
