listerfluidpower is a division of James Lister and Sons Limited, which was founded in Tipton in 1874 by a local schoolteacher, James Lister, as a hardware and ironmonger shop. The business expanded into industrial supply, providing janitorial, lubricants, fasteners and tooling to a wide range of companies, from branches across the Midlands.
In the 1970's the fluid power business was started, supplying to many of the same customers, who appreciated the strong Lister service ethic. In the late 1990's the company expanded into mobile hose service and in the early 2000's South Wales was added to the geographical reach.
In addition to the original listersupplies business, and listerfluidpower, in 2010 listertube was formed and works closely with the fluid power business to support those customers who have rigid tube hydraulic applications. Since 2014 listersubcontract has been supporting customers with a wide variety of assembly and light engineering skills.
