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 our branches across the Midlands.
During the 1970s listerfluidpower was formed, supplying to many of our loyal customers who appreciated our strong service ethic. In the late 1990s, the company expanded into mobile hose service and in the early 2000's we branched out into South Wales.
Alongside, our original listersupplies and listerfluidpower divisions, in 2010, listertube was founded and works closely with the fluid power division to support our customers with rigid tube hydraulic applications. As of 2014, listersubcontract has been supporting customers with a variety of assembly and light engineering skills.
