The HUB-4 team sat down with the MD – Elliott Martin who gave us the whole story. “We moved into our current
premises six years ago from our old factory in Ballyclare and have been producing an average of 50 machines per year. Moving to the
new factory gave us 43,000 square feet for production including machining, turning, vertical and horizontal CNC milling and surface
grinding. Two new paint spray booths completed everything we need to ensure the complete manufacture of shredders.
“Over the last six years turnover has trebled, and we have added to our machine range, offering bespoke systems and complimentary equipment including conveyors and
material handling equipment. We invested £3 million when we moved, and it has successfully underpinned our desire to expand and ensure high quality products.
