Customer Comments

Wiltshire Waste

The increase in baling productivity has been huge. The fact that it’s a British designed product with shared customer service values is particularly satisfying.

N Grist


The new Middleton baler adds additional capabilities to recycle difficult to handle waste streams. Producing uniform, highly compact bales helps optimise our transportation and storage costs.

B Staff

Cumbria Waste Management

We were very impressed by Miles and his team. They did a great job on the installation and very proactive in handling any concerns that we had.

K Ruddock

St Helier Municipal Services

Middleton Engineering were extremely helpful from the off. Nothing was too difficult and we quickly got a sense that we could work well together. They gave us a timescale and stuck to it. Essentially we were offline for just one day and baling in the afternoon. When it works like that it gives you massive confidence.

Piers Tharme

The Range

Middleton Engineering provide an excellent service that we rely on When the main pump casing recently fractured, Middleton’s rapidly turned the job around – fitting a new pump, testing and checking the machine so we were back to work the same day.

S Hurn

The Co-operative Group

Middleton’s have been providing and servicing balers and conveyors to us for 16 years – we’re delighted with the service, the depth of the relationship we have with the company and indeed the quality of the product.

Nigel Pilkington

Stirling Council

Middleton’s were happy to come to Scotland to see our facility and to understand what we needed. They added a feed in hopper at the base of the conveyor at our request, which was key to our processes.
