1.12 Brief History:

Pipe Supports Asia Limited was established in 1996 as a subsidiary of Pipe

Supports Limited, itself a subsidiary of Hill & Smith Holdings Plc (UK), initially to
oversee the manufacturing agreement between Pipe Supports Ltd. and the Sino Thai
group of companies which began in 1995, and to market Pipe Supports Ltd products
in Thailand.

Due to ever increasing demand and to maintain the highest standards of

quality and delivery, Pipe Supports Asia Limited established its own manufacturing
facility in 1997 and is entirely responsible for the manufacture and quality control of
all supports and associated products.

1998 saw the addition of a CAD drawing office to Pipe Supports Asia. All
draughtsmen are extensively trained at Pipe Supports Limited in the U.K. prior to
working in Thailand. As there is an increasing number of important projects being
handled locally in the region, this unique facility serves to support the contract and
engineering managers of these projects and ensure important deadlines are

In October 1999 Pipe Supports Group Ltd. took 100% interest in the company
buying out the other Shareholders and Pipe Supports Asia became a major part of

06/06/2011 Page 3 of 9
the newly formed Pipe Supports Group Ltd. The company re-organised, expanded
capacity and began manufacturing a wider range of products including spring

In September 2002, PSA bought an 8,000sq.m plot of land in a prime site near
the new international airport. The manufacture started on site in the 2,000sq.m
factory in November 2004.

In September 2005, PSA opened a new branch and moved into a 4,500sq.m
facility now manufacturing high-density polyurethane foam (HD PUF) products.

In August 2006, a further 1,800sq.m new facility was opened to cope with
expanded PUF Cold Support sales.

In September 2007, the original 2,000sq.m spring hanger shop was expanded
to 3,000sq.m.

Pipe Supports Asia Limited follows the manufacturing procedures established

over many years by Pipe Supports Limited who also supply all necessary technical
and quality advice.
