Altendorf for James Cropper PLC

Nottingham based woodworking machinery manufacturers and distributors Daltons Wadkin were recently approached by James Cropper who are major suppliers of speciality papers, bespoke high performance laminar materials for industry applications and also value added paper and board products.

Their remit was for a high quality precision sliding table panel cutting machine and after discussions with Alex Dalton the high profile Altendorf WA6 model was chosen, providing a 2.6 metre table with scoring, powerful saw motor and a build quality renowned worldwide

Alex Dalton was happy to provide a machine of this class knowing that it would meet all James Cropper’s requirements.

“This is a top of the range panel saw whilst at the same time being fairly compact and ideally suited to James Cropper’s requirements. We expect it to give many years’ service and are delighted to be able to add a major specialist paper mill to our ever growing list of customers.”

Martyn Palliser of James Cropper was equally pleased and said “We recognise the superb build quality of Altendorf products and are very pleased to be able to add one of these machines to our production facility. The Daltons Wadkin team arranged delivery, installation and commissioning and we are delighted with the service they provided.”
