A manufacturer and supplier of site machinery based near Boston has secured international orders worth more than £3.5 million in one month.

Morris Site Machinery is busy flying the flag for Britain overseas; for after a year’s worth of new product development and strategic planning, the Gosberton-based firm has won new business in Australia, Dubai, and Russia.

Working with its partner Allight Sykes, it will provide 300 SMC TL90 LED ELV lighting towers throughout 2016 and into 2017 to Australia’s largest equipment rental company, Coates Hire, in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane.

The efficient, extra low voltage equipment was designed to meet the increasingly stringent health and safety requirements Down Under and suit a range of sectors.

Alongside this, more than 50 TL90 LED lighting towers will be delivered into Dubai after the business secured an order from a new customer. These have been chosen for use on various construction projects in the lead up to Expo 2020 – what is billed as a ‘festival of human ingenuity’ with an expected audience of 25 million. The products have been specifically adapted to improve heat reflection and ensure operation in high temperatures.

In addition to these, Morris Site Machinery has gained further orders to supply its market leading TL90 lighting towers into Russia by its partner Tokyo Boeki.

Morris Site Machinery managing director Phil Winnington said: “These are significant orders and contract wins for us, testament to the quality and reputation of robust British manufacturing in a global marketplace. It shows faith in the quality of our products, our ability to innovate and produce bespoke solutions for our customers and the value of the strong partnership working we enjoy.”

Morris Site Machinery is a fifth generation business with roots in Shropshire but has been based at Gobserton for 10 years where it employs 25 people.
