With over 100 years of experience in the supply of previously-owned woodworking machinery Daltons Wadkin continues to set new standards for others to follow, deploying its extensive engineering facility to consistently raise the bar within this sector of the industry.
The company’s Nottingham headquarters hosts a fully equipped machine shop, fitting bays, training workshop and classroom, a large showroom area displaying both new and rebuilt/serviced machines, after-sales and contract service support office, tooling and spare parts desk, a 16000 sq ft-plus warehouse capacity, transport, health and safety and machine sales departments.
Historically always an engineering business as well as a distributor, Daltons Wadkin also manufactures world-renowned Wadkin classical designs as well as the range of high precision Phillipson Disc-, Belt- and Contour-Sanding machines. This manufacturing capability fits well with its machine upgrading, rebuilding and servicing activities and the company’s collective skill set and experience is reflected in the standards applied to its previously-owned machine range.

Accordingly, Daltons Wadkin is able to lead the way in offering unprecedented customer support and terms of warranty reference second-hand equipment. Every machine incorporates a 30-day return option, both rebuilt and serviced models benefit from a comprehensive warranty and all items are available for inspection and testing before delivery should this be required.
“How many other companies can boast a wide-ranging engineering capability and long-standing heritage whilst also being at the forefront reference the marketing and installation of some of the latest advancements and high profile brands in the industry?” asks Daltons Wadkin director, Alex Dalton. Kimla CNC, Greda CNC, Salvador crosscutting systems, Elcon and Altendorf panel saws, Cehisa edgebanders, Kuper planer/moulders, Stenner resaws and Wadkin classical machines all feature amongst the company’s UK distribution agreements and this activity is augmented by a rapidly expanding operator training team.
Alex comments: “This business, both now and in the future, will focus on the promotion of the latest technical developments by some of the most sought-after names in the industry, but we have no intention of turning our back on what brought us to this point.
“Since the earliest days when the company was started by my great-grandfather, our strength has come from an engineering background and an enviable reputation in the area of rebuilt and classical woodworking machinery.
“There have been many changes in demand over the years,” says Alex, “particularly since the advent of CNC, and Daltons Wadkin will continue to machine smarter as construction methods, design and machining requirements continue to adapt and move forward. But there will always be a place for previously-owned equipment, and our company’s serviced or rebuilt machines represent the best that money can buy.”
