Merritts installs SEYI presses for UK agentNottingham-based Joseph Merritt Group (Merritts), a heavy-machinery moving specialist, was recently appointed to transport four SEYI SLG2-400-S5 presses on behalf of Walsall-based PressCare UK Ltd ( and install them at the Ideal Boilers factory in Hull.

Ideal Boilers has over 100 years of providing the best-quality boilers to its customers while continually working to meet ever-changing heating needs into the domestic and commercial heating markets.

Presscare UK specialises in the design and integration of machine control and safety systems and is the UK agent and European Union technical representative for the Taiwan-based SEYI Press Manufacturing Group.

The packaged machines arrived in the UK from Taiwan on eight flat-rack trailers, which Merritts collected from the docks and took to the Hull site.

The company then unloaded the cases using a fork-lift truck and transported the presses using special trailers. Each machine was carefully unpacked and moved into the factory while still on its base frame; an Enerpac Superlift hydraulic lifting gantry was used to install it.

PressCare UK’s operations director, Neil Walls, said: “The project planning and execution were delivered to an exceptionally high standard, resulting in a smooth installation.

"The site operatives were extremely helpful and fully aware of all relevant health-and-safety compliance requirements.”

James Merritt, managing director of Merritts, said: “This project is a prime example of our ability to liaise with port authorities, heavy-machinery manufacturers and their agents and distributors.

"We see ourselves very much as part of their extended team, trusted to provide the very best customer service while also ensuring that their machines are transported and installed safely and on time.”
