Our History

Since being founded in 1991 to manufacture explosive carriers and ancillary items for the mining industry, M.B. Products has grown steadily, acquiring new skills and diversifying into new market sectors.

2014  

Move to Purpose built 16,000 sqr.ft. (1,400 sqr.mtr.) unit.

2008  

Acquired MIdgleys, who were manufacturers of military products along with their workload, specialized machinery and production staff, thus increasing our turnover, skills and capabilities.

2006  

Started production of the “Plant Nappy” for Manvers Engineering Ltd, which required the acquisition of new skills and investment in specialist machinery. From modest beginnings demand for “Pant Nappy” has grown significantly and it is now recognised as an industry standard.

2000  

Acquired Rapier Engineering, a specialist Light Fabrication Company who manufactured mainly metal boxes to house electronic equipment, thus increasing our skills base and acquiring new machinery. Acquiring Rapier also facilitated our diversification into wheelchair modifications, which in turn widened the scope of services we were able to offer the healthcare market.

Developed our own range of waterproof safety clothing which was marketed by the Road Rescue and Recovery Association.
