What our clients say

What Next?

Phil Jones, Intelicare’s technical manager, said:

“Intelicare has evolved over the last few years, being involved in much larger turn-key projects, rather than simply the supply of individual equipment (which we obviously still can do, though!). This applies to all our partners, for presses, complete cooling systems, and extrusion projects. I’m really proud of the team we’ve put together here at Intelicare, who have lots of experience covering a whole range of projects.”
