Over the years the range of products has developed, with the introduction of baling equipment, hydraulic crushers, and compactors in the late 1990s, utilising the hydraulic products and experience of the Hydraulics division.  

2007 saw the introduction of drum and IBC reconditioning equipment. In 2012, the business became the sole distributor in the UK and Europe for SSI Shredding Systems. This has paved the way for developing the shredder service, maintenance and re-build facility, providing an excellent addition to the existing manufacturing workshop. Also, the introduction of shredding equipment allowed for the development of medical waste treatment facilities and many other recycling systems.
