Our customers are worldwide, including Hong Kong, China, India, Brazil, Russia, Macau and South Africa.

The spares they seek are also from worldwide sources, with the majority coming from the UK and European areas.

At the heart of the company's success is a live database of over 4000 suppliers of spares and equipment built up over many years of successful business relations. This database provides a searchable list of many thousands of oil, gas, electrical and ship spare parts indexed by product type, clients’ stock numbers, manufacturers’ names and part numbers. Trade Names are also captured, leading us to the maker’s name.

This enables Souter Trading to identify a huge range of specialist and obsolete parts effectively and quickly from manufacturers such as Alstom, Areva, GEC, Dewrance, Hopkinson, Howden, Williams and James, James Walker, Howell Stanway, Brook Crompton, Clifford and Snell.

Where the original manufacturer’s spares are no longer available we have the specialist knowledge to do our utmost to supply suitable replacements.

Engine spares, boiler, compressor, separator, generator spares in the infrastructure of oil refineries, offshore oil rigs, power stations, gas farms are our speciality. Souter Trading provides the total logistics package – from sourcing the part to despatching it to your required destination with a full awareness of the urgency of the process.

All large organisations need a Souter Trading, striving to locate the un-findable, track down the obsoletes or offer alternatives, and also kicking suppliers to get your goods to their destination on time and in the most cost-effective way.
