History
We started as a specialist design office in the north of England in 1985 designing solutions for the coating, laminating and slitting industries.
In 1986 we moved into a larger facility and commenced manufacturing as well as designing the machinery.
1990 saw us move to a bigger plant with more investment in our manufacturing systems
We moved to our present location in 1996 which was purpose built for manufacturing our range of coating and laminating machines


2001 saw our biggest export turnover with 98% of turnover exported.
Today, we have the latest in design equipment with a very wide range of machinery designs in our portfolio, we manufacture 80% of all our parts and have a full order book.
