Conveyors and Mechanical Handling Ltd


Phoenix Conveyors Ltd. have built a healthy, successful business from knowledge, experience, competence and more importantly enthusiasm for the real issues facing industry today. Using the latest technological advances in manufacturing techniques and materials we are able to offer a bespoke solution for all your conveyor needs.

This family owned and run business, based in the Herefordshire countryside, was established over 10 years ago by John Hopcutt and his son Ian. We initially began trading with two customers and have grown steadily now providing a service to some of the UK’s major companies. We are proud to say that our original two customers are still trading with us today!

Our flexibility ensures that individual pieces of equipment can be supplied as readily as complete turnkey projects thus a total ‘one stop shop’ philosophy has allowed Phoenix to offer customer satisfaction. Phoenix supply a range of:

  • roller conveyors
  • belt conveyors
  • slat conveyors
  • control panels
  • sensors

All equipment is fully tested at our premises, personally delivered and installed at the customers premises before being fully tested again. Phoenix will work with you to achieve exactly what you require, by listening, researching, developing and ultimately advising, ensuring you will get exactly what you need.

Then you will receive an after sales service that is second to none because we want you to come back.

Phoenix can provide complete roller conveyor solutions from simple gravity roller and skatewheel conveyors to powered roller lineshaft driven conveyors.
