It’s all change for Yorkshire based machine tool maker Broadbent Stanley as they have not only bought the Yorky Oilfield Grinder name outright (formerly a partnership agreement) but have moved to larger premises

Now one of the oldest established names in the UK, Broadbent Stanley have moved from their base for the past 11 years in Sowerby Bridge to larger premises in Halifax, West Yorkshire. This is due to the continued expansion of both their oil country lathe business and the unbridled success of the Yorky Oilfield Grinder. With in excess of 50 Yorky units sold since Managing Director, Graham Thomas seized uponand bought the rights to manufacture from the now defunct Yorkshire Machine Tools.

Unlike many of UK’s machine tool companies Broadbent Stanley has not only weathered numerous recessions but has seen the development of many new products and is looking forward to a bright future.

For reference Broadbent Stanley now exports almost 95% of its products.
