Maun Industries

Company Profile

Maun Industries was established in 1944 and is the UK’s largest manufacturer of pliers. We pride ourselves on our ability to design and develop bespoke tools to meet the requirements of our customers. Our product range consists of more than 200 different types of pliers and we are specialists at producing small volumes of tools for highly specific niche markets.

One such market is meter sealing. In the 1980’s, Maun developed a system for sealing electricity meters to prevent fraud, replacing lead seals that had previously been used. If a meter has been tampered with for the illegal abstraction of power, this will result in one or more of Maun’s seals being broken. The tampering is therefore evident the next time that the meter is read by a visiting meter reader. Maun’s meter sealing system includes meter sealing tools and specially manufactured ferrules and wires.

In addition to supplying the hardware for the sealing system, Maun maintains a log of all meter sealing tools it has ever made, recording to which company they have been issued. The system may only be sold to companies that are signatories of MOCOPA, an agreement establishing a code of conduct for companies in the UK electricity industry to prevent fraud. In addition to selling its meter sealing system to the utility industry, Maun also supplies its durable diagonal cutting nippers, cable cutters and shears and, a highly effective shear bolt removal tool.

Maun operates from a purpose-built 40,000 square foot plant in Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire. The company has been ISO 9001 accredited since 1993.
