Over the last 30 years Northwood Food Machinery have supplied William Sword Ltd with a variety of bespoke machinery for our pastry production and soup packing processes. These projects have ranged from small individual conveyors to the the manufacture and installation of a continuous puff pastry line with PLC control.

We have worked on perhaps 15-20 projects together over the years and in that time I can honestly say that we have never had a machine that did not perform to specification. Any teething problems are resolved swiftly, always to our satisfaction and with a minimum of fuss. Northwood Food Machinery’s products are among the most reliable pieces of equipment we use and form the backbone  of all our production processes.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Northwood Food Machinery to anyone in the food industry looking for robust, efficient and well designed equipment.
