W.E. Amies & Co Limited, including its divisions Amies Plastic Moulders and Amies Innovation has a long-standing reputation as a trade moulder, manufacturing precision components for industry and the medical profession. The Amies group was founded in 1929 in Sheffield by Bill Amies and the company now has a range of the latest, modern, moulding machines that facilitates manufacture to the finest quality and tolerance from a wide range of technical engineering polymers.
The latest chillers, two RACA + Energy models, supplied by Intelicare but manufactured by Italian company Frigosystem S.r.l in Italy have been added to one acquired some time ago to provide cold water for the mould shop for hydraulic cooling and mould conditioning.
