"Agriemach Ltd commissioned Fred and his team for a large installation on a Power Plant Project. This involved lifting and installing large parts on to the roof of the engine containers and fully installing them. When they were presented with unforeseen issues created by a third party, Fred and his team discussed, designed and then implemented changes to the engineered solution live on site. Their work, enthusiasm, and stamina is second to none and as such they have been placed at the top of our approved Engineers list – the preferred partner"

--David Kallmann, Agriemach Ltd

"Fred and his team have worked with us on a number of occasions over the past 7 years.
This has included fault diagnosis, design of the required parts and aid in sourcing or manufacture to provide a cost effective solution. Working closely within our team this included remodelling the chucks at our Wapping site, manufacturing machinery to separate waste paper from the supporting cores and devised modifications to press sensors to improve loading efficiencies on our three UK sites. 'I would like to thank you for all your help our the last several years in getting our vision into a working reality'"

 -- Chris Wilde, Newsprint Logistics Manager,  News International, London


"GMK used Sussex Mechanical Engineering Services to conduct a condition audit and service our workshop machines. At the end of the audit Fred made recommendations for any essential, additional work and guarding, which subsequently, they fitted to our lathe. The  level of service and their open, practical approach would mean that GMK would use S.M.E.S. again and certainly recommend them."

-- Malcolm Grendon, Technical Manager, GMK Ltd


Lhoist UK Ltd has been using Sussex Mechanical Engineering Services since March 2013.

Originally starting out at one site in the south east, SMES quickly displayed an understanding of the processes involved on site and our business needs.  We have consequently assigned SMES as our principal contractor for several sites along the south coast, making use of their professionalism and expertise.

Fred’s quick response times and implementation of solutions have been invaluable to our business, and he has formed good working relationships with our customers ensuring that projects run smoothly.  We have made use of SMES’s ability to design and build alternative process solutions that have been effectively integrated into existing setups on time and on budget, and the thorough work completed is always reported back in a detailed fashion, allowing us to take care of customers from a distance.

Fred’s commitment has been a real asset to our operations and we look forward to continuing working with SMES.

We contracted Sussex Mechanical Engineers to assist us with designing a bespoke automatic door opening testing rig. Fred worked closely with our Mechanical Engineering team and with his knowledge and experience we achieved something better than we thought was possible. Sussex Mechanical Engineers have facilitated us building an effective, efficient and above all safe machine. With their assistance our output for testing has significantly increased allowing us to reach our KPI’s quicker and with a more suitable reporting method.
