Pickford began in the late 1940's as T.R. Pickford & Company. The company’s founder, Tom Pickford (1900-1967) began by importing wire rope and various drilling-related equipment. In the 1950's, the company operated as Wellhead Controls until 1989, at which time it became The Pickford Group Ltd.
Ron Williamson in 1973
Ron Williamson, Tom’s son-in-law, not only is one of the founders but also continues to be actively involved in setting strategic direction and day to day operations. Pickford has two operating divisions; Plant Maintenance and Flow Control. Over the 25 plus years each has added substantial products, accessories, and capacity.
