Our Capabilities


PL Machinery has a proven track record in delivering fast paced challenging installations. The company is equally adept operating as a supplier, leading contractor or integrator.
We are small enough to take real pride in each and every job that we do yet agile enough to take on projects of all sizes. Our structure means we are able to handle requirements from as simple as one hopper loader, dryer or belt conveyor, to the design, planning and installation of innovative solutions and in-plant systems.

We love what we do, we hope it shows.
