Manufacturing at our Cardiff factory                                                                            Tel. 02920 450 128

Our staff, at our factory in Cardiff, have a great many years of experience of the design and manuacture of materials handling equipment. We retain experienced designers, machinists and welders, as well as a team of painters and engineers. Our teams are ready to advance an idea towards a drawing, and then to turn a drawing into a product concept, soon to be followed by a prototype design. Once that design is ready and has been approved and tested, production can begin either at our Cardiff factory or through our partners in Europe and China.

Parcel stillages

Parcel stillages or parcel cages can either be mobile (on castors) or static using a base designed for use with a fork truck. Parcel stillages or cages can be full security spec to protect valuable goods, or open for fast trunking of products between vehicles or between depots and Central Distribution Centres.



Folding Bulk Stillages

This stillage was designed to ship car parts between the Midlands and France. The double doors at the front of the transportation cage were designed to allow easy access for loading and unloading.

The cages were designed to fold down flat when not being used, and were sized to suit the product, but also to maximise the amount of empty stillages that were transported back to be reused

Glass Stillages

Glass stillages can be made to be mobile or static. The angle that the glass is stored is critical to reduce the pressure on the glass panes.

Glass is often described as a “dead weight “, and glass stillages and glass trolleys need to be built to protect the glass from damage when being moved with fork trucks or on lorries.



Waste Stillages

Stillages and cages come in all different sizes, and are often made to measure to suit the products that are being moved or stored.

This waste stillage was designed to take 3000 mm long off cuts of corrugated plastic sheets ready for recycling.

The stillages were designed to be stacked five high when fully loaded, which save a huge amount of factory floor space

Drop Down Stillages

This special stillage was designed so that the contents could be accessed in an area with restricted space and there were concerns about gates or half-drop sides swinging outside the of the outer perimeter of the cage.

The bespoke stillage had a simple but ingenious method of retaining the bars, so that they can drop into the base.



Budget stillages

We manufacture a range of budget stillages using mesh, and expanded metal that can be used for general applications.

We try and use only 50 x 50 x 4 mesh on products we make as it is much stronger than 3 mm welded mesh


Security Stillages and cages

We manufacture and design security cages for moving and storing high value goods, from mobile phones to cash and coins.

Security for a cage usually comes down to reducing the opportunity for theft, and deterring a casual theft.

We can incorporate tracking systems as well as high security locks to the cages we make








Stainless steel trolleys are great for environments such as hospitals or laboratories, where access to water and cleaning chemicals can cause problems with standard powder-coated trolleys.

This trolley was design for a horticultural research company, and plants were grown in special trays under controlled sunlight and watering environments which offered different levels of humidity.

The trolleys were fitted with special sealed stainless steel castors which like the rest of the trolley were maintenance free.
