Company History

Established in 1980 as a partnership Mr. Ken Mills took over the company and renamed it from his father who had been in the manufacturing industry for over 20 years previous. The company grew from strength to strength with its unique designs and forward thinking with its designs. In the earlier years the textile industry was the major industry with exports of over 50%.

In the early 90’s recycling became fashionable and the designs and efforts for this industry grew, the same experience and technology from the textile industry was used to develop a range of baling machinery, shredders and systems to suit the ever growing recycling industry.

In the late 90’s larger scale sorting and MRF systems were demanded and we have positioned ourselves as one of the leading designers and manufacturers of these systems and baling machinery. We differ slightly from the other suppliers of this type of equipment as we have a great recourse of design and engineering skill. We start with initial design, through to details design and then onto manufacture. The engineering skills / resources include a fully equipped machine shop with CNC machinery, electrical system design and manufacture, Hydraulic system design and manufacture, Sheet metal department, Fabrication department for the construction, spray shop for paining the machinery and finally a fitting shop to assemble and test the machinery before shipment. We operate 6 vehicles for the installation, service of the machinery.

We have just consolidated two manufacturing premises under one roof which is a new build state of the art premises with 42,000 sq foot of manufacturing space. There are 4 off brand new overhead cranes to assist in the manufacture of the machinery. With the entire design and manufacturing operation under one roof we can control delivery timescales and quality to a high standard.

New Premises

As we have expanded our operation and increased our turnover through the past few years we have invested in a new building premises for the whole operation. Previously we were operating from split sites and have invested in a purpose Built 42,000 sq foot premises to bring the two site together to improve efficiency and allow a further increase in turnover.
