History of Midland Handling Equipment
In 1966 Deacon Brothers was established as a small installation company dealing mainly with the installation of conveyor systems. The company slowly grew in size, and in February 1973, Midland Handling Equipment Limited was formed to run alongside Deacon Brothers to design and manufacture materials handling equipment for the UK market. Learn about the history of Midland Handling Equipment on below.
By this time, Midland Handling Equipment had developed its own range of overhead chain conveyors under the Trakmaster trade name, along with a varied range of belt and roller conveyors. We now design and manufacture handling equipment from our 10,000 square foot factory in Leicester.
Midland Handling Equipment uses a number of CAD programmes in the design office to produce detailed 3D drawings. These drawings are invaluable in highlighting any major problems within the application or installation. Design engineers and technical experts work together to provide the best and most cost-effective solutions to the most extreme problems. After design, our experienced mechanical and electrical engineers work on the manufacturing and finishing of products. Finally, if required, the final part of the process is completed by our installation and commissioning teams. Trained and certificated for all types of lifting and carrying platforms and equipment help aid a speedy and safe installation. Finally, the accounts and administration are handled in our ground floor department providing all financial, health and safety, and legal documentation to the required standards.
We have enjoyed almost four decades of successful business and are well known in the industry for our dedication /commitment to the provision of outstanding product performance and customer satisfaction.
