BiS Valves Ltd. was originally founded in 1971 as ‘Bournemouth Industrial Supplies’. The founder, Ralph Burgas, was Managing Director and owner until his retirement in 1995. The company was acquired and managed by Paul Gardiner, with Matthew Smith and David Kelly as production and technical directors. In 1998 the company name was changed to ‘BiS Valves Ltd’. Following the departure of Paul in 2002, Matthew and David jointly managed the company until mid 2007. Following the sad loss of Matthew, David assumed full responsibility as Managing Director.
In March 2014 after 23 years at BiS Valves, David Kelly, Managing Director and majority shareholder, handed over the day to day leadership of the business to Nick Frost, previously Technical Director.
