About Us

Newtech has been working in the food industry for over 25 years. Originally a distributor for processing and cooking equipment in the meat business, we recognised the growing need for high quality portioning equipment around a decade ago, and we started out on our journey as a designer and manufacturer of ultrasonic slicing systems. Since then we have established an enviable position as a supplier across a range of food sectors – including cheese, bakery, sandwich and meat industries. We are an ambitious company, strong on innovation and with a focus on flexibility and customer future-proofing.

An important development for us has been our adoption of robotic automation to supply innovative and flexible automation systems ; key to this has been our partnership with ABB Robotics. We have developed a standard ultrasonic cutting system based on a robotic platform, and this continues to be an important part of our product portfolio.

In 2013 we have launched a new range of standard cutting systems, specially designed to meet the needs of the ever-competitive food manufacturing business. In addition, we continue to offer custom solutions to meet the growing demand of our customers to cut costs, improve quality and boost output.
