Increased efficiency in loose loading and unloading of vehicles

As one of the leading suppliers of conveyor modules with proven build quality and reliability, we are proud to present a range of expandable, flexible and durable conveyors for loose loading and unloading applications. Loose loading eliminates ‘dead space’ created by pallets or roll-cages. Engineered to the highest standards to endure the rigorous demands of despatch areas, distribution centres and parcel handling hubs around the world, our flexible conveyors provide cost effective handling solutions – not only for the large distribution centres but also for smaller companies requiring only single units.

We have also gained a reputation for supplying high quality competitively priced rollers and spares to all aspects of the material handling industry.

Our products are used by blue-chip companies in the UK and throughout Europe.
