After Covid enforced a somewhat subdued performance in 2020, 2021 has proved to be an extremely busy year for MecWash. Sales have bounced back with a large number of orders from high-profile customers all over the UK and in North America.
MecWash has seen a substantial increase in demand from particular sectors such as hydraulics (eg Husco & Hydraforce), automotive (eg Grainger & Worrall) and the medical sector (eg Croom Engineering, a highly respected player in the orthopaedic implant field who have ordered another machine). The only sector which remains relatively quiet for us is aerospace.
You can find some of our case studies on our website www.mecwash.com, in the News section.
2021 saw MecWash continue to grow its global presence – business is steadily increasing in North America where our representative works with distributors to develop the market and provide technical support.
Sales are also rising in China where both our dedicated representative and our distributor are working together to increase our presence in the market, marketing both to firms with western connections, but also to domestic manufacturers.

2021 has seen the launch of a the new Aqua-Save Ultra, a new waste water treatment system that reduces disposal costs by up to 95%. The new high capacity Aqua-Save Ultra can process up to 30 litres an hour of waste water from manufacturing processes.
This complements the smaller Aqua-Save Junior system, which processes up to 15 litres per hour. The Aqua-Save range has been developed for the treatment and recycling of industrial waste water, including wash water from parts cleaning equipment, coolant and dye penetrant, reducing the need for expensive off-site treatment and disposal.
We are also continuing the development of our core wash systems and hope to be bringing out a new machine in time for MACH 2022.
John Pattison, managing director of MecWash, said: "For the past twenty eight years, MecWash has established a global reputation as a leading manufacturer of high-quality aqueous cleaning machines, coupled with extensive experience of formulating wash chemicals that meet the needs of our clients around the world. This includes using our in-house laboratory to develop and provide bespoke detergents used in the washing process.
"Our customers have no room for inefficient or ineffective washing systems. They have to ensure the highest possible cleanliness standards are reached," added John.
"The renewed demand for our machines demonstrates that even in these difficult times, high quality is critical to blue-chip manufacturers."
Looking forward to 2022
We are looking forward to a strong 2022, which will open for us with a solid order book. We are also looking forward to MACH 2022, held at the NEC Birmingham from 4th to 8th April 2022 - which will be a great occasion to meet old friends and discuss new projects. Come and visit us at our stand 18-114 where you will be able to see some of our aqueous cleaning and degreasing machines in action.
