We are proud to announce 150 years of manufacturing Industrial Centrifuges.
Thomas Broadbent & Son Ltd has stood the test of time – thanks to a worldwide reputation for engineering excellence that has stretched across the decades and enabled us to manufacture everything from steam vehicles, overhead cranes, winding gear, and midget submarines, (as part of the wartime effort), to heavy-duty Industrial Centrifuges for the Textile, Chemical, Pharmaceutical, Mineral, Mining and Petrochemical processing industries.
Today we still remain the front-runner in the field of centrifuge technology – in the supply of industrial processing equipment plus laundry equipment for hotels, hospitals, and other organizations.
Simon Broadbent, our joint Managing Director, said the 150-year centrifuge manufacturing milestone was “a tremendous achievement, adding: “The past successes are wonderful and the future is all to play for!” Our company still operates from the site at Queen Street South, UK, where founder Thomas Broadbent started the business as a millwright in 1864 – making our company actually 156 yrs old this year! We aim to continue providing state-of-art Industrial Centrifuge technology to such key industries around the world.
