About Us

The Company is run with a 'direct approach' with all existing and potential customers being catered for on an individual basis.

The Company's Goal

Has always been to offer quality new and used machinery, complimented with a no-nonsense warranty, ensuring customer's total peace of mind.

We are also one of the very few independent machinery supply outlets who have actually 'chosen' the products with which we wish to be associated, therefore we are not bound to offer the 'rough with the smooth'.

What we do offer is a premium range of quality new machinery incorporating such marques as Kundig, specialist manufacturer of wide belt and edge sanding machinery, the Genisis range of sliding table panel saws, edge banders and classical joinery machines and a comprehensive range of CNC machines from the AES Group.

Over the years

Established in 1990 as a service orientated company, but we soon evolved into purchasing surplus machinery and machinery from auctions and liquidations taking on our first rented unit of 3,600 sq ft in 1992 based in Southport, Merseyside.

 

 Over the next 6 years we continued with the purchase, refurbishment and resale of used machinery and in 1998 with the introduction of the P.U.W.E.R 98 regulations, we started to supply new machinery.

By the year 2000, the company had outgrown its first premises and needed more space due to the expansion of the new machinery sales and the new machinery agencies which had been agreed. This led to our second move into a larger unit in Banks, Lancashire just on the outskirts of Southport.

By the year 2003, the company once again needed more space and better facilities as around 75% of the companies' activities had switched to the supply of new machinery which was compliant to both C.E. and P.U.W.E.R 98 safety standards.

2003 we purchased a modern Industrial premise centrally located with easy access to Manchester, Liverpool and Preston and offers a 5,000 sq ft showroom with possibly one of the largest displays of sliding table panelsaws in the UK. Over the years, the Company has built up a quality customer base and enjoys the benefit of repeat business from loyal customers both far and wide.

 

2005 we agreed to work with Swiss sanding machinery manufacturer and to set up a sales network and oversee their activity in the UK.

 

2006 5th January was the worst start to the year possible when without warning we lost our Father Mr Joseph O’Meara.

 

 The same year we parted company with one of our biggest suppliers, Altendorf which were replaced with the Genisis sliding table panel saws.

 

In 2007, we extended our factory to give a further 1100 sq ft.

 

In 2008 we introduced the briquetting machines to the Genisis range and showcased the Genisis products for the first time at the W8 woodworking machinery exhibition.

 

2008 - 2010……recession…but we survived…!

 

2014 we introduced the Genisis 512S edge bander…giving the small to medium size manufacturer an affordable PVC/ABS machine with pre-milling and corner rounding.

We invested in a new dedicated delivery vehicle to give a cost effective and reliable customer service.

 

2016 Having spoken with the AES group for the previous 2 years, we agreed to work with them and started by introducing their smallest CNC, the through feed Sirius drilling and routing machine.

Once again, we extended our factory to give 7,500 sq ft.

 

2017 The first AES Sirius machines came into stock and we organised the refurbishment of the factory.

 

2018 we invested in a new dedicated customer care vehicle and at time of writing are getting ready for the W18 exhibition…. ​

Thank you for visiting our website and if we may be of service we will always endeavour to do our utmost to assist in your requirements. We look forward to hearing from you.
