About ASHE

Over 45 years’ engineering excellenceand still going strong

ASHE Converting Equipment is a family owned company, established in 1976. We are now a global manufacturer and supplier of specialist state of the art slitting and rewinding machinery for the film, paper and allied web industries.

Where it all began

From thento now

The business was started with 3 people originally manufacturing Drive Control Systems. We were one of the first companies to develop a fully reversible rewinding machine. It was a natural progression for ASHE to extend the range into slitting and rewinding machinery.

We now manufacture a complete range of slitting and rewinding machinery from widths of 300mm up to a maximum of 8.7m.

Our manufacturing base continues to be in Ipswich, United Kingdom, with subsidiary in the USA. We have a workforce totalling approximately 75 personnel. We have a strong team of mechanical engineers who all work on a modern 3D Cad system, and work alongside a team of software / electrical engineers, who are dedicated to writing all software for our machines only.

Our plant in Ipswich is equipped with an array of machine tools, where up to 80% of machine parts are manufactured in house. This gives us huge flexibility in the range that we are able to build, and also being able to engineer a machine, to suit what the customer wants. It also enables us to guarantee precision of parts that are going onto the machine.
