CME Ltd remains operational during  the COVID-19 Pandemic

As we are involved in the design, build, repair and maintenance of equipment serving the FMCG and pharmaceutical industries, we are classified as key or essential workers. Our business and the services we provide continue to take a ‘business as usual’ approach, although whilst remaining open we are working in-line with current public health guidelines and ensuring the continued wellbeing and safety of our staff onsite.

35 years of serving multinational and independent customers that turn to us whenever they need reliable, innovative, high quality solutions from an entirely customer-orientated private, family-owned company.

What sets us apart is the flexible, customer-focused approach we use to develop high quality machinery that fits the product perfectly – not the other way around. With around 120 employees in our business, every process is carried out at our plant in the UK, from concept studies to full production line integration. Short timescales are a common requirement from our customers, especially when the time-to-market is critical to the success of a new a product. We are used to this and pride ourselves on delivering to challenging time scales.
