History

History

Equalizer International (initially known as Future Alignments) was established by brothers Bob and Graham Stephen in 1994, based on little more than a single idea developed in a garden shed in North-east Scotland. Since then we have grown to become the world’s leading designer and developer of flange maintenance tools. After a number of years of steady development and consolidation to build a company based on strong foundations, we have seen outstanding international growth in recent years. We opened our Houston branch in 2013 and in 2014 set up a new design centre in Glasgow.

PRODUCT INNOVATION

Our tools provide a fast, safe, cost effective and simple solution to all your flange alignment, flange spreading, flange pulling or precision lifting requirements. We also design and supply cutting edge hydraulic hand pumps.
