About He-Man

In the early 1930’s, after the founder owners of the company left the RAF they went into production of very large tools to work on vehicles such as tanks. Eventually the company relocated to Southampton in 1964 where we began to design and manufacture dual controls, this is where the head office is still based.

He-Man Dual Controls Ltd is the leading name in Dual Control systems, and has become the industry standard; the name is synonymous with pedals for safe driving tuition.

With over 80 years of manufacturing experience, each and every dual control is designed and manufactured with the knowledge that it could someday be needed to save a life.

He-Man Dual Controls are 100% British products, with all design and manufacturing taking place at our facility in Southampton. Each dual control is a dedicated design, to ensure the highest level of quality, operation and safety when it is fitted to the appropriate make and model of vehicle. All our work is carried out in line with He-Man’s ISO accreditations for quality, health and safety and environmental considerations.

Whilst we are very proud of our tradition and British origins, the company is progressive and dynamic; our customers are becoming increasingly worldwide, with the superiority of He-Man Dual Controls designs now being recognised in Europe and North America.

We enjoy the opportunity to work together with various charities across our region and nationwide, including The Big Learner Relay in support of Children in Need. We are proud to say that our Investors In People award was achieved at Gold level at our first attempt and we were the first company in Southampton to achieve this recognition. Without the dedication of the He-Man team, this would not have been possible.

The He-Man team are very proud of our products and the excellent service we provide; most of all we are proud that we keep instructors and driving school pupils safe every day, as well as ensuring the safety of many other users of He-Man Dual Controls.

“… Thank you for keeping me alive every day!”
