Perry of Oakley Ltd was founded in 1947 by Tom Perry, a farmer’s son, who offered a manufacturing service to local farmers and businesses in Oakley, Basingstoke.
We built our first continuous grain drier in 1954 and our first chain and flight conveyors and bucket elevators in 1949 and the early 1950’s.
In 1952 our first factory was built in Oakley, and was just 2000 sq. ft. By 1974 we had our first purpose built factory. Over the next 16 years the business continued to grow and expand under the direction of Tom’s son, Nigel Perry. In 1990 we relocated to Honiton in Devon to larger premises. In 1991 Nigel’s son, David Perry, joined the company after achieving a First Class Honours degree in engineering.
In 2007 David Perry took over as Managing Director. The factory now occupies 52000 sq. ft., on a 2.5 acre site. We use the latest CAD CAM technology, automated punching and forming machinery and our designers and technicians have years of experience in the bulk materials handling trade.
All of our products are designed and manufactured in our purpose built factory using a depth of knowledge acquired during more than 60 years of business, and using our in house staff we provide expert technical support for our machinery worldwide.
Examples of products handled include grain, minerals, animal feed, wood waste, pellets, dusts, woodshavings, wood chip, sawdust, pet food, and compost to name a few.
Our experience and in depth engineering knowledge is our strength. You know that when you purchase a Perry product you are buying a quality made British built product that is backed up by a third generation, 60 plus strong family owned highly experienced company.
We have a strong UK customer base and export to many countries around the world.
We back up our equipment with a large stores facility in Devon and we have a network of engineering staff who are available for site visits if required.
