Barwell goes global and invests in China
UK-based rubber machinery supplier Barwell has been renamed as Barwell Global and invested US$1.1 million in a facility in China to reduce its overheads.

The company will retain its UK facility in Cambridge as its headquarters and design centre. The investment in the new facility in Shanghai is backed by a Taiwanese businessman, Dr Shieh, who also runs a multi-million dollar group of companies, in manufacturing, logistics and trading, in China.

The company says the Chinese facility will build machines to CE specification using its current European suppliers for parts and materials. As well as product design and development, the UK headquarters will offer worldwide sales, spares and service support. Barwell also has a direct presence in North America, through Barwell Machinery USA, in China, through Barwell China and in South America, through Barwell do Brasil, as well as a network of agents in more than 40 countries.

Involved in machine building since 1926, Barwell says it was the first to develop and use hydraulic ram extrusion technology. Its core business is in gear pumps and standard performers; ram extruders; cold feed screw extruders; cryogenic deflashing machines and microwave drying and heating systems.
