Detectable Components

We are proud of our long established partnership with B.S. Teasdale & Son Limited, the Doncaster-based manufacturer and supplier of a wide range of detectable products designed to help the food and pharmaceutical industries carry out their responsibilities under new EU hygiene legislation.

Amies has for some time been a key manufacturer of detectable plastic components. If a detectable component becomes entrained in food or pharmaceutical production equipment and is perhaps damaged or broken, even the smallest fragment can be readily detected by conventional metal detection equipment and dealt with.

Teasdale already use Amies-manufactured components in their Detectapen range of detectable pens which are used extensively in the food industry. Increasing numbers of food industry health and safety professionals cite detectable plastic as an important part of their safety management strategy going forward. We are now working together with food and food equipment manufacturers to develop machinery component solutions in detectable plastic to help them make a robust and positive response to the new food hygiene legislation now in force.

Commented Amies MD Bob Ball – “Our long established ethos is to manufacture highly demanding products in engineering polymers – the type of work that most moulders shy away from.
With recent legislation putting much higher demands on food processors, it seemed to me that this sector was crying out for a specialist moulder who was both capable and experienced in processing sophisticated materials with the added benefit of the detectable element.

It is with great excitement that we have joined forces with B.S. Teasdale, the market leader in detectable products. Using our combined skills and experience means we are able to engineer detectable plastic solutions capable of meeting the new legislation-driven requirements of food processors and equipment manufacturers.”

Added B.S. Teasdale MD John Teasdale – “Having been a customer of W.E Amies for a number of years, we are now pleased to form a strategic alliance with one of the leading moulders of metal detectable components in the UK. This will enable us to offer our customers more solutions to their contamination issues and help them make effective use of the HACCP approach to food safety management.”
