Advance Services (Sales) Ltd. is incorporated October 18th by Daniel O’Sullivan, a former Potterton engineer, as an interparts stockist and service provider. Originally operating out of New Malden and Manchester, a single long-term office is established in Addlestone, Surrey.
Advance Services begin supplying packaged hot water systems to the U.K. laundrette industry featuring Potterton Diplomat glass-lined boilers and galvanised steel tanks. Soon after, a deal is made with the A.O. Smith Corporation to create the first ever direct fired gas water heaters for the U.K.
