Nearly 12 years ago in a small East Yorkshire village, Detectamet Detectable Products was launched and has grown to become one of the world’s leading suppliers of detectable safety and hygiene equipment for the food beverage and pharmaceutical industries.
Sean Smith and Angela Musson-Smith established E-Components & Chains as an engineering company with its core business supplying Conveyor Components and Chains Change Parts and Feed Scrolls to the food and drink industry. The success of ECC led to visits to many food companies and meetings with key technical staff. Regular references by these food producers to the need for metal detectable plastic equipment to preserve their machinery and protect their products and their customers from the dangers of cross contamination highlighted a potential demand that the company could satisfy.
With their foresight and drive the founders saw an important opportunity which their company should take. It would take advantage of Sean’s experience of over thirty years in the plastics industry meeting the challenges and resolving the puzzles of supplying the food and pharmaceutical industry with plastic products.
