Walsall Ltd’s headquarters is located in the West Midlands region of England and its main products are based around enclosures in the increased safety, intrinsic safety and flameproof protection classes with approvals for the integration of a wide range of electrical apparatus. Enclosures are available in a variety of materials, including stainless and mild steel, fibreglass reinforced plastic, aluminium, and cast metal. All product ranges are certified for use as a combination if more complex system solutions are required. As a complement to the core products, other product ranges include lighting, signalling equipment, emergency shutdown equipment, and installation accessories such as cable glands, thread conversion adapters, stopping plugs and breather drain devices, which can all be used in hazardous areas.

Through the acquisition of Walsall Ltd, Pepperl+Fuchs plans to expand its existing process automation product range and enter the electromechanical explosion protection market.
