Below is a brief summary of Roberts background.

My engineering life started at an early age. At just 12 years old I worked alongside my older brother Ian and our father at his engineering company in Chelmsford. It was normal practice to work weekends and school holidays.

In 1973, aged 17, I began a 4 year apprenticeship as a Technician with Marconi in Chelmsford ending with a position in the jig and tool design office.

Marconi could not offer me a permanent position. My father offered me a position to join himself and my brother in the family business and to continue my college education. Both Ian and I achieved ‘Higher national Certificate’ qualifications in Engineering.


Over the next 15 years the business grew both in size and the complexity of contracts carried out. We specialised in Special Purpose Machinery and developed our own range of industrial Plastic Forming Machinery, supplying major international companies including:

  • Rothmans PLC
  • 3M (UK)
  • Royal Small Arms
  • Smith and Nephew
  • Hudson Bay Co
  • Trebor
  • … and many more.

I needed a fresh challenge and this was achieved by selling part of my interest in the family business.
Ian and I formed a commercial development partnership and spent the next few years developing and industrial site in Chelmsford and one in Harlow, still maintaining an active interest in engineering.

A strong friendship developed with an experienced engineer designer and between us we identified the need for a range of competitively priced products aimed at the education and hobby market. The next few months were spent developing the first Copyright machine.

The last few years have been spent running our property company and going back to my engineering roots by developing other copyright products.
We aim to offer a complete range of plastic forming and process machinery for the education and hobby market.
My family always had great pride with the finished products we produced and I will continue to put quality before price in our products. I firmly believe that there is a market for all of our quality produced products.

I really enjoy what I am doing and am very excited by the prospect of developing new products to our range. I have also designs for various consumer products which I hope to develop and bring to the market place.
