About Us & Our History

Mailing & Mechanisation (UK) Ltd was formed in late 1985 and started trading in January 1986. As the main thrust of the business was service and support, we started rebuilding customers own machines and were in fact the first people in the UK to rebuild the ‘industry standard’ Phillipsburg. At that time Bell & Howell told customers that these machine could not be rebuilt, but after a couple of years set up their own rebuilding facility in Ashford. A few years later they shut the operation as they could not make it pay. Although they carried out a very good rebuild, they took the decision to rebuild back to original specifications, very much like rebuilding a classic car. We took a totally different approach and worked very hard to bring the machines up to current day standards and with our skill sets, this worked very well for us.
When Mailing & Mechanisation first started trading we felt that it was imperative that whatever we did, we always remained in control. This is a philosophy that we have maintained to ensure that we could always give the customer good service and were never in a position where we were in the hand of a third party.
We have spent a great deal of time and effort honing the rebuild process and also working very hard at improving the machines that we rebuild. This has held us in good stead as we now have a reputation for quality and service. Since we started in business, like many other industries, many people have thought that they can make money through rebuilding and that rebuilding is simply a case of getting a machine to run and then cleaning it and painting it.
We take pride in what we do and if you speak to any member of staff at Mailing & Mechanisation, you will understand that we do not do business in this manner. Many companies offering rebuilds will tell you that they all strip their machine totally and rebuild them and I would agree that some actually do strip the machines. However, that is the easy part and although a few do strip them, if the parts are then simply cleaned, blacked and re-assembled with a few obvious parts replaced it is a very expensive ‘machine clean’. It is quite often the case that the staff used for these processes are simply internally trained people with no real in depth knowledge, skills or qualifications and given that quite a few owners/managers of these companies are not skilled or qualified engineers, they actually do believe that they are carrying out a full rebuild.

All of the staff at Mailing & Mechanisation are fully qualified and skilled engineers and we are always looking at way of improving what we do and how we do it. The rebuild process has been developed and improved over 25 years and by engineers that are not only qualified but know the machines intimately.
