Designed & Manufactured in Britain

In 2016, we became the first materials handling company to be accepted into the Made in Britain campaign, an initiative created to support and promote British manufacturing. In fact, our solutions are both designed and manufactured by our team of experts at Advanced Handling HQ, a purpose-built, state-of-the-art building in Peterborough.
Our close working environment provides us with the flexibility to deliver our Bespoke service, ensuring our customers’ requirements are met whilst maintaining our high “Made in Britain” standards.
Why not contact us to arrange a tour of our impressive factory and offices and experience Made in Britain first-hand.

Lee Colegate

Technical Director

How long have you worked at Advanced Handling? I worked at Advanced Handling for 10 years, had a little break, then returned for more and have been back here for just over 18 months.

What does the role of Technical Director involve? I look after the engineering, project management and aftermarket aspects of the business.

What’s your favourite part of the job? Coming up with solutions for the variety of challenges our customers come to us with.

What did you want to be when you were a child? A fireman, then a pilot and then when reality kicked in, an engineer like my Dad.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time? I am currently building an extension to my house but when I’m not doing that or at work, I enjoy going to the gym.

Lee’s random fact: Although there isn’t much that is of interest, I have dislocated my shoulder more times than I care to remember and hence got called Mel Gibson for a while.
