Central Engineering Design Ltd was established as a partnership in 1988 by partners Ken Greenland and Peter Filmer. Both with years of experience in the design and development of surgical and scientific instruments.
Working from Riverside Industrial Estate In West Hythe, Kent, the business developed into two facets: one in design and development of products to customer specifications; and second, in restoration and re-manufacturing of vintage classic and custom chrome parts.
We were involved in the manufacture of needless injection systems, tourniquet systems, cigar cutters, gun alarms, leisure products and established ourselves with many professional restorers from all over Europe for quality restoration of automotive chrome-work.
In 2006, we became involved with what was then called the REST system, designing and patterning the first electric sampling pump and quick release filter holder. With our previous knowledge of anaesthetics and vacuum technology we were able to improve the whole process.
In 2008 we designed the first carousel and linear stand for the canine dog training for the detection of IEDs ( Improvise Explosive Devices ) in Afghanistan, and in 2011 we won a contract to supply the whole of the British army.
In 2014, the company expanded into a bigger premises at Shorncliffe Camp in Folkestone. At the same time, Central Engineering formed a new sister company named Trimax Fabrications to increase its services including sheet metal and plastic fabrications.
