About Us

Our priority is to provide excellent customer service – The type of service that we would like to receive ourselves.

Vale Burner Services Ltd was established in 2004 by Colin & Dianne Brackley, initially based in Haddenham, and now operating from Long Crendon.

Colin’s background is in mechanical engineering and he has over 35 years experience in the Oil & Gas industry.

Our engineers are not only trained to OFTEC standards, but their initial and ongoing training is overseen by Colin to ensure high standards of work are always maintained.

Colin and Dianne took a break from the running and management of the business from 2012 until late 2015. They are now back in control and very much enjoying renewed relationships with long standing customers.

We are recognised by Grant UK and provide warranty service on their behalf
We are a fully-insured OFTEC registered business, employing OFTEC registered technicians.
