Our purpose-built factory is home to a number of different roles. Found at our factory are welders, painters, machine-shop workers, etc etc. Skilled-labourers of many ages make up our workforce, and thanks to their hard work they make our machines a reality.
Here’s where the magic happens. Our Design team create each project, and due to the bespoke nature of our business, each machine has to be carefully designed to fit the customer’s individual needs.
