About Us

it's simple, We sell quality machines at warehouse prices

Our aim is to source and sell secondhand machines with a price that reflects their condition. We only sell new or reconditioned with a limited service and back up but offering large savings on the initial outlay. In essence, good quality machines at warehouse prices.

We are based in the UK but 85% of our business is done overseas.

In the last 5
years we have
sold machines
to over 60
countries
worldwide.

We export on average around 35 containers every year.

In 2005 we started not only selling from stock but also on our customers' behalf on a commission basis which has proved to be very successful.

We are always in need of more good quality used dairy and food processing machinery. If you have anything to sell from single machines to complete process plants, please contact us.

Because of the way we work we can normally offer more for your machinery than any other dealer. Payment will be made in full before any work is commenced.

We offer a full 'World Wide' removal and transport service from your site.This service includes full insurance and all necessary paperwork.

I look after our U.K. and Irish ice cream customers, from the largest industrial producers right down to start-up companies. Having worked in well-known ice cream factories since the 1990’s, there’s nothing that I find more rewarding than helping my growing list of customers to get the very best out of their machinery, ingredients, packaging and people! Our goal is to offer the most complete package in the business, including sales of our outstanding range of used machinery, brand new ROKK, Cattabriga, Soren and Promag machines, service, rental machines, spare parts through our Dairy Bits division as well as advise and consultation. Please get in touch. I look forward to being of assistance.
