NEWS // Customer Testimonial: 100L QT Compressor!

"I needed a compressor, and for months during the pandemic, I studied available compressors that fit my price range and requirements. By chance, I went to my local farm equipment supplier, Chandlers. They had some small SIP Compressors on display. I took a catalogue and, within an hour, I had ordered the SIP QT 100/10. Why did I do this without hesitation? Quite simply, my research had already been done, but the SIP QT100/10 provided me with an extra layer of benefits, and it's so quiet! Rattling off nails from my nail guns on a Sunday isn't an issue, it doesn't suck electricity and doesn't need a 30amp supply... bonus!

The final point which sealed the deal is that it's mobile. Yes, it's kind of heavy getting it in and out of my small van, but that's my choice. I wanted the largest receiving tank I could lift. It runs off my SIP Medusa 3000w Generator so now I can build my garden spaces totally off-grid and still keep my professional touches, speed of build and use my favourite air tools. No compromise, no moaning, just a happy Ben."

NEWS // Customer Testimonial: SIP Welders in Sculpting!

"As a poor post graduate student of Art & Design in 1997, I bought my first SIP MIG Welder on the recommendation from my local welding supplier. The fact it was a British company was even more brilliant to get my career off the ground. I did not know then that this would be the start of an amazing journey creating sculptures over 20 years.
My original SIP welder I had for over 10 years, and created hundreds sculptures and was a very loyal friend... it was time to move on and get a bigger SIP machine, SIP Ideal 180 Super to be precise, and also turn my crude welding skills to stainless steel. I couldn't believe how straightforward it was with the SIP machine to just swap out the wire, and that was it!
I have been making large stainless steel sculptures with my current SIP welder for many years, and it has never let me down under tight deadlines and heavy use... it is reliable and efficient."
- Michael Turner Studios, Sculptor

NEWS // SIP compressor with 37 years of vehicle restoration

An SIP Compressor was recently spotted spraying a classic MGB at a private auto bodyshop in Essex! After some investigation by our sales representative in the area, we later learned that it has been used in frequent restoration of various vehicles for over 37 years. We were, of course, over the moon to see one of our old compressor performing like that day it was built.

NEWS // SIP 1970s welder in action for over 40 years

This SIP Ideal 120 welding machine was first manufactured in the 1970s, when SIP was still a small business operating out of South Wigston, Leicester.
