The name Kelston has been established in the manufacturing community since 1968, when Kelston Precision Gears Ltd. was founded, forming the base knowledge upon which Kelston Actuation is built. The company at the time specialised in high precision gear cutting and manufacture, completed entirely in-house for multiple different industries and customers.
Through Kelston Precision Gears, the division previously known as Kelston Transmissions Ltd.
was born and focused on a new range of gear-based products, centered around electro-mechanical lifting. The subsequent acquisition of the company formerly known as Fortune Actuators propelled us further into this industry and, off of the back of our strong manufacturing heritage, became Kelston Actuation. The desire to not only manufacture all our own components but to design
products within our own brand is what fueled this transition.
Today we use what we have learned to continuously refine our products and streamline our manufacturing service, making our products more accurate, more reliable, and more applicable than ever.
