About Us


Meyn Poultry Equipment Ltd is a family owned business based in Basingstoke, Hampshire.

Our long history in the poultry industry started when Roy Harding, who was at that time the UK agent for Systemate, travelled the UK selling hand vent guns, lungs guns, EV spoons and similar equipment. In 1972 Roy met the Meyn family and was asked to represent them in the UK and Meyn Poultry Equipment Ltd. was established. It was an exciting period of new automated processing, and we became the sole UK agent for Meyn capital equipment and spares. We supplied, installed and serviced machines for all the major UK processing plants of the time.

In 1986 Roy retired and Peter Bowditch, Roy’s son in law and Managing Director took over the running of the company. Having already been in the business for 4 years and been part of teams that installed Meyn equipment he developed extensive knowledge of Meyn and their products. Over the next 27 years, as the processing plants consolidated and became larger, Meyn Poultry Equipment Ltd has continued to provide a first class service.

Meyn have now taken control of the capital equipment sales in the key plants, however it was Meyn Poultry Equipment Ltd’s initial sales of equipment that has given Meyn such a strong UK customer base. Many of the machines that were originally installed by Meyn Poultry Equipment Ltd are still in use today in the major processing plants.

40 years later, when it comes to the quick and efficient delivery of critical spare parts, Meyn Poultry Equipment Ltd provides excellent service to all their customers. We know and understand the poultry business and aim to ensure that your plants keep running, with minimal disruption, keeping yields at their maximum, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Although capital sales and servicing for the large plants (8000 birds and higher) are now handled by Meyn themselves, we are still able to provide excellent technical support and advice from within the UK. We can still offer servicing, installations and machine overhauls should this be required.

If you have any equipment or technical requirements within the poultry industry we would be pleased to offer our expertise and services. If you would like any further information please get in touch via our contacts page.
