Q: Please introduce yourself. What are your responsibilities within your company Fillworth UK Ltd?

A: My name is Iain Fergusson, Sales Executive at Fillworth (UK) Ltd, responsible for sales and new business development of our range of Industrial Mixing Equipment. To the UK / European and global markets.

Q: Could you give us a quick overview of your company Fillworth UK Ltd?

A: Fillworth (UK) Ltd specializes in the design and manufacture of high performance, advanced technology industrial mixing machines and the associated processing technology.  We are positioned in the upper, quality segment of the market for this type of equipment, which is sold predominantly but not exclusively to the various branches of the composites and chemicals manufacturing industries.

We focus by tradition on some of the more demanding applications in adhesives, fillers and sealants, and this includes the processing of advanced composite raw materials. This latter places special demands on the technology and equipment used to achieve the desired end results.

Our USP is that as a specialist manufacturer we can adapt and customize our machines to individual customer requirements more so than is the case with some of our larger competitors.  Where this results in a machine that is more fit for purpose, the advantages in the long term are obvious.

Many of our machines are still in active service after 25 years, with only the occasional need of attention from our dedicated mobile service engineers. Read Full Post
