We are currently refurbishing 5000 - 6000 units per annum, primarily clamp on units due to these being a best selling product. This figure includes a number of Lowline and T-Bar Fonts plus Cabinet Beer Pumps. We have a highly successful track record in pump manufacturing and refurbishment but also in beer dispense equipment. We have more recently invested in the development of own brand beer dispense products and accesories such as Check Valves, Multi-Holed Sparkler, 1/2 pint Beer Engines and Vertical Cask Extractor Sets.
