About the Company
Cliff Gothorp founded the Company in 1986; his objective was to create a company that would provide materials and equipment for conservation and preservation of archives and works of art.
Today Preservation Equipment Ltd has a trusted reputation that is recognised by major institutions worldwide. The Company is built on providing quality products at the best prices with large stock levels (the highest in Europe) to enable prompt delivery, good service and earn its reputation as the market leader. The products are featured in the full colour, 210-page mail order catalogue.
PEL brand name products have been developed with assistance from professional conservators, librarians, curators and archivists. The PEL brand is only used when the product is of the highest standard and manufactured to the exact specification.
The Company delivers worldwide, however for North America contact http://www.universityproducts.com
. For other countries please contact us.
University Products Inc of America and Preservation Equipment Ltd have a strong business relationship that has existed for over twenty years. PEL are supported by UPI holding large stocks of the University Products and Lineco materials, ready to supply Europe with immediate despatch.
The cost of replenishing the stocks are kept to a minimum by a door to door delivered 40 foot container each month.
Together the two companies offer the largest stocks and most complete selection of archival and conservation quality products.
As always, Preservation Equipment Ltd. continues to introduce new products leading the field in supplying materials and equipment for conservation and preservation.
Preservation Equipment Ltd was founded by manufacturing a single product the polyester sealing machine, the very first product marketed by the company (today there are over 7000 products).
Since that humble beginning other companies tried to copy the design, but have not achieved the quality, reliability or sales levels, it is estimated the Monarch Economy accounts for 90% share of the world sales for such a product.

The purpose built extensive warehouse and distribution centre, opened February 2000 ensures you continue to receive the service you have come to expect from PEL. During 2005, we extended the warehouse to accomodate the increase in sales and new products.
Over a number of years we have researched and designed products especially for conservation. We are proud that the company is recognised as the outlet for developments in preservation and conservation. This is the reason why other organisations are requesting PEL to exclusively market their products and developments. Such companies as Lineco Inc., University Products Inc., Gemini Tinytalk and Tinytag data loggers, Print File Archival Photographic Storage, and Thermocutter just to mention a few.
The brand name PEL is a selection of products, PEL-Cloth, PEL-Cold Suction Tables, PEL-Steamer, PEL-Tissue, and PEL-Microscopes. When you see the PEL brand name you can be sure the products are of a very high standard with unrivalled quality. We will not allow the PEL brand to be used unless it's the best; it's the name you can trust.
We look forward to serving you.
