April was a busy month here at Group Rhodes and saw us exhibiting at MACH 2018 at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham.  

Our exhibits included a 60 Tonne Straight Sided Mechanical Press fitted with an Atkin 300mm-wide Servo Feeder and an Atkin SP300 Spacesaver Decoiler.   Our stand was very busy throughout the exhibition and it was a great opportunity to meeting existing and new customers and discuss future projects.

During the exhibition, our CEO Mark Ridgway was presented with a certificate of Membership of the MMMA (Metalforming Machinery Makers’ Association) by the Chairman Adrian Haller of Bruderer. Group Rhodes is now the longest serving member of the MMMA having joined almost 70 years ago in April 1949!

Group Rhodes CEO Mark Ridgway said: “We had a very busy and successful show at MACH.  It was also a great opportunity to discuss with customers about our new agreement with metalworking partner Dr Hochstrate Maschinenbau.  We expect this partnership will open up new market sectors for us to explore new avenues of business.”
