Many years ago, the current Technical Director of Vickers Seerdrum Ltd was the founder of Industrial Handling Equipment Ltd designing, manufacturing, installing and operating scrap recovery plants world wide. Primarily for the steel making and foundry industries. This industry went into decline in the West as the industrial base moved to the Far East. A few photographs are provided here to demonstrate the degree of engineering design now embedded within Vickers Seerdrum Ltd; which of course is still processing waste into useful, recoverable products just as Industrial Handling did. Only this time it is municipal solid waste.
