Sanderson Machine Tools and its parent company Sanpro Industries Limited have a proud manufacturing tradition dating back nearly 40 years. Sanpro Industries Ltd. was founded by Malcolm Sanderson as a general engineering company with a particular focus on designing and producing exhausts, mufflers, and baffles. Malcolm, dissatisfied by the slow and expensive method of making exhaust cores from perforated flat sheet, designed his own machine to produce cores. It made exhaust cores better, faster, and cheaper than anything on the market. Realising the international demand for such a machine, it is here that Sanderson Machine Tools was born.
