Manvers Engineering founded
Our Founder worked in the tunnelling industry specialising in separation technology. He worked alongside environmental managers who had become frustrated by the failure of metal drip trays.
They were often damaged, making them useless, overflowing or even being emptied out by the operator. With thousands of machines on site, it was impossible to police.
The failing alternative
Alternatives to metal drip trays begin to enter the market. They are ineffective and not user-friendly, containing many parts for onsite assembly.
Our Founder, unsatisfied with these efforts, employed his expertise in separation, researched materials and technologies and subsequently developed a prototype on his kitchen table.
Patent application submitted.
Environmental managers were excited about what would later be called, the Plant Nappy.
