Our power electronics division manufactures a vast range of wire-wound resistors, power resistors, dynamic braking resistors, rheostats and potentiometers (incl. those previously manufactured by Cressall, Bremco and MCL Bowen).

With full design and test facilities our purpose built manufacturing plant can supply prototypes, one-offs and in certain cases a re-wind service. Whether it is NPD or full production runs that you require our whole computerized production control system is geared to provide a fast, efficient service.

Resistors Products

As experts in thermodynamic technology LPC designs & manufactures industrial heating elements for both plastic and process heater uses, from simple surface heating through to complex process air and circulation devices.

Our database contains details of more than 20,000 types and styles of heaters, which enables identification of most requirements within seconds. Each product is individually engineered to suit its application, with consideration given to the environment, economics and long-term serviceability.

Elements Products

Manufacturers of cast metal components to customer specifications. Our dedicated design facility, foundry and machine shop produce bespoke components from Aluminium, Iron and Bronze.

Our particular forte is Cast-In heaters, which comprise of a tubular element formed to the required shape and then cast in metal. Contact surfaces and critical dimensions are machined with precision to ±0.05mm, and a wide variety of terminations are available.

Over the years LPC engineers have developed cast components and cast-in heaters for almost all current process applications.

Our Principals



This is at the heart of everything that we do and this is demonstrated by our accreditation to BS EN ISO9001:2015. This standard covers both design and manufacture of products, which is particularly appropriate for our business given that the majority of products are custom built for specific applications.

About Us

Since 1928 we have been working with our customers to provide bespoke engineering solutions to their requirements.

We’re made up of three divisions:

LPC Elements – the largest manufacturer of industrial heating elements for the plastic & process industry in England. Experts in thermodynamics, we design and manufacture everything from band heaters and cartridge heaters to complex process air and circulation devices.

LPC Resistors – our power electronics division. With over 90 years of experience we have developed the most comprehensive range of power resistors and rheostats available in the UK. We assist our impressive list of customers with resistors for MV & HV applications and can offer anything from one offs and proto-types up to full production runs.

LPC Castings – manufacturers of bespoke cast metal components to customer specification. With dedicated foundry and machine shop we are fully equipped to assist with the realization of your design. We have experience working with a number of materials to tight tolerances and to tight deadlines.

With offices in the North and South we have UK wide coverage. Our engineers are always on hand to conduct site surveys and give technical advice. Our products are designed and manufactured in the UK and we see ourselves as doing our bit for the great revival of UK manufacturing. With our many years of experience our reputation has spread far and wide and we now ship products world wide on a daily basis with a network of local agents available to discuss your requirements wherever you are in the world.
