MD Engineering brews up success

A Castleford manufacturer of brewing equipment which has helped spearhead the UK’s craft beer revolution is continuing to invest in the region with the opening of a new manufacturing facility.

MD Engineering Solutions, a manufacturer of canning machines, pressure vessels, vacuum tanks and keg washing equipment, is expanding into new and larger premises in Castleford as demand for its equipment continues to rise.

The company supplies its equipment to brewers across the UK and with more breweries opening last year than any other year since 1930, demand is swelling and the company is enjoying a boom in sales.

The firm’s new Castleford site will now combine its office and workshop assembly area meaning all aspects of daily operations can take place on a single site, further aiding productivity and communications.

Director Matthew Horsey said: “Our team equips breweries with top quality machinery made right here in Castleford.

“We also provide bespoke design and modelling, project management, consultation, feasibility studies and breakdown repairs, so whatever a brewer needs, we can offer a tailored and cost-effective approach.”

MD Engineering Solutions is now based at Unit B11 at Whitwood Enterprise Park in Castleford, which is just off the M62 and conveniently placed between the A1 and M1 corridors.

This puts the company in a prime location, as brewers from across the UK regularly visit the site to see how the expertly designed technology can take their production to the next level.

Horsey added: “Wherever you are in the UK, there’s a good chance that your local pub is serving a proper pint that wouldn’t be possible without a bit of Yorkshire engineering.”
