MDS Ltd Start-Up
MDS Ltd was set up by Stuart Milne in December 1992 as a Design-&-Build
service, working primarily in the paper converting industry. From the
outset, the business provided Turnkey solutions for Drive, Slitting,
Folding and Winding system upgrades on existing production lines.
The MDS Ltd team had demonstrated its creative abilities within a matter
of months and was soon engaged in designing complete new systems, including
stand-alone Unwinds, Rewinds and equipment for product Conveying, Batching
Having won significant contracts throughout the tissue and paper industries, the team’s experience in web handling grew considerably and by 1995, MDS Ltd had produced its first fully automatic Rewind Turret with Flying Splice. This twin 40kW DC unit ran continuous 2-shift production of coated paper until the line was decommissioned in 2003.
