About Made in the Midlands

What We Do

Made in the Midlands, part of the Made in Group, exists to champion and promote UK Manufacturing

This community, along with Made in Yorkshire and Made in London, originated in 2009 as a simple pledge signed by the Managing Director’s of manufacturing firms to do 3 things:

  1. To open a channel of communication within local firms to source and supply locally where possible,
  2. To upskill and reskill workforces, and finally
  3. To promote good news from manufacturing businesses in order to counteract the adversity in the media that ultimately undermines confidence

In partnership with AICHELIN, Austria, we can supply advanced heat treatment systems for a diverse range of industries.

Our partnership with AICHELIN allows us to offer customers the latest heat treatment technology with a focus on low energy costs, environmentally friendly output and high degrees of automation. Products we can offer include pusher tray type continuous furnaces with controlled atmosphere and continuous conveyor belt furnaces. We also work with AICHELIN to supply ring hearth furnaces for continuous carburising and press or oil hardening and continuous roller hearth furnaces and rotary hearth furnaces with controlled atmosphere.
