In December 2014, Berntel SA was acquired by Hudaco Trading. Berntel was established in 2003 by the founder and previous Managing Director, Bernard Champion. Bernard is now the Technical Manager at Berntel SA and has been instrumental in growing the company into a thriving pneumatic component and specialist process and industrial automation supplier.Keeping to the family values, Bernard’s sons Neil and Wayne joined the company as Director of Sales ​and​ ​Financial​ ​Director​ ​respectively.

Berntel SA and JELPC joined forces and took the industry by storm by hosting a joint stand at the Indutech Show in 2006, which reinforced their place in the market.
