Merritts Make BBC News Appearance

Eagle-eyed viewers of a recent BBC News broadcast might have spotted a familiar sight on their television screens, after Merritts made a brief appearance on the late night edition of the programme.


The broadcast which originally aired on the 12th February, featured trained operatives from the family firm, successfully completing the delivery and installation of a brand new machine at Cutting Technologies Ltd.

Merritts were shown during a news feature on the recent growth of UK industry, which included footage of experienced operatives, Robert Bingley and Paul Johnson, installing the new cutting machine at the facility.

The installation also involved the use of a 7 tonne Hyster fork lift truck, which was used to accurately position and install the machine while filming took place.

While the duration of the news item only lasted for a few minutes, the footage did provide an illustration of Merritts wide range of capabilities.

The broadcast is currently available for a limited period on the BBC’s IPlayer service, to see us in action, click here to watch the video in full.
