Setting the Standard. The foundation of a Middleton Engineering project is safety. Our products are designed and safety tested with user protection as the highest priority.
Middleton Engineering worked as consultants for the HSE, assisting with research into safeguards for users of horizontal baling presses within the UK. This research was the foundation of the BS EN 16252-2012 standard for baling presses.
In July 2015, Middleton Engineering underwent a vetting process that examined our health and safety processes and track record for safe practice. We were recognised to meet very high standards and were accredited by SafeContractor.
Located in Meare, near Glastonbury in Somerset, Middleton Engineering was formed in 1975 by the Proprietors, Ashley and Joan Middleton. Initially, the Company specialised in the design and production of equipment for the horticultural peat processing industry, a high proportion of which was centred in and around the Glastonbury area. A reputation for quality of work, excellent service and design innovation quickly established Middleton Engineering as a major supplying force within the industry, both nationally and worldwide.
By the early eighties, Middleton Engineering had expanded its expertise into the waste processing industry. They had developed a range of paper baling presses that were finding wide acceptance within the waste paper and packaging industries. Again, quality of service and workmanship, coupled with a problem solving design approach quickly established the Middleton Engineering as a significant supplier. In 1988 further expansion into the recycling market occurred, with the acquisition of the baling press interest of one of the longest established British manufacturers of press & baling products, Scapa Engineering. Today, Middleton Engineering is a major force supplying the waste recycling industry. In Addition, the company offers a sub contract supply facility in the production of hydraulic cylinders and rams built to customers design.
