About the employer

Kinetrol was established in 1958. Initially the company's activities were based on its damping expertise which led to the development of Kinetrol's rotary viscous dashpots for smooth motion control. Kinetrol later invented and patented its vane-type rotary pneumatic actuator, recognising the emerging need for quarter-turn valve and mechanism actuation. Since then, the company has added many actuator control modules to meet the growing demand for more precise and sophisticated process control and monitoring. Kinetrol operates from three sites in Farnham, England, and exports at least 70% of sales to countries all over the world across many different industries e.g. oil and gas, food and drink, automotive and aerospace.
