Our long history in the poultry industry started when Roy Harding travelled the UK selling hand vent guns, lungs guns, EV spoons and similar equipment to poultry plants. 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 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 had developed extensive knowledge of Meyn and their products. Over the next thirty-two years, as the processing plants consolidated and became larger, Meyn Poultry Equipment Ltd continued to provide a first class service.
Where We Are Now
Forty-five years after the company was established, the business has developed and grown by responding to the needs of their customers. The next generation have now joined the company and have been working alongside Peter for the past five years. Together they have looked at innovative ways to move forward to continue to provide a service they can be proud of.
Meyn Poultry Ltd currently provides support in four major areas: spare parts supply; machine servicing; new equipment sales and bespoke engineered solutions.
