Wakefield manufacturer scoops major food sector contract

07 September 2022

Hallamshire Engineering Services, a Wakefield-based manufacturer of material handling equipment, including pulleys, rollers and conveyors, has secured a new contract to make stainless steel drums for the food sector.

The contract win is with Robson Handling Technology, based in Sheffield, with the drums forming part of a conveyor system that the company is supplying to a sugar processing plant in Portugal.

One of only a small number of conveyor manufacturers in the UK to be able to produce drums, pulleys and rollers in stainless steel, Hallamshire Engineering Services supplies both standard and bespoke product sizes.

The business, part of Group Rhodes, has extensive experience in the food sector and is the original designer and manufacturer of the ‘Whittington’ Spiral Wound Conveyor Pulley, which is widely used in food and agricultural applications.

Matt Rodgers, bulk sales manager at Robson Handling Technology, said: “We chose Hallamshire Engineering as we have worked with them for many years and are confident of the quality of their manufacturing process.

“On complex projects like this one, we needed a supplier we could trust and the fact that they are locally based is another bonus.”

Neil Bettley, operations manager for Hallamshire Engineering Services, added: “We are happy to have secured this latest contract with Robson Handling Technology.

“We have supplied the food industry for almost 25 years and provide a bespoke design and manufacture service to suit individual company’s requirements.”
