To mill our world famous, super-fine pigments and non-dispersible dyes down to a nanometric scale, we rely on some of the best equipment on the market. And, since we’re experiencing record growth, our existing mills reached capacity over the summer so we invested in a few more to enable us to meet demand.

Two new Bühler MMX3 milling machines arrived, all the way from Switzerland, on site at our manufacturing plant in August and caused quite a stir, as you can imagine! It’s not every day we have to unload, set up and test a 2 tons piece of machinery so we’ve had a very busy few weeks.

But our capital expenditure doesn’t stop there. We have a further six mills on order three of which will be arriving in December (a very nice Christmas present for Pete!) and three more will land in early 2016.

So, when you’re next in Darnall, pop in and see how the factory has been transformed by these latest arrivals. Live demonstrations are always a key part of our tour!
