  • I worked with this machine for thirty years, 1976 to 2006. One of two installed at Witham. The factory closed in 2016, plant sold, not sure where presses went.

    Ed: Alan, many thanks for this information. The press must have given some good service over all these years since it was originally built in 1965! It may have been retired and scrapped. Possibly someone else will know? John B
