This press was acquired by H E Reed (Plant & Machinery) Ltd., Kent, in 1988. It had never been installed and the original equipment was still in packing cases! F & P supplied a new control tube and electronic control system for the accumulator and a new discard swinging arm unit for the press. The equipment went to Thailand.
