Ashe Converting Equipment

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.
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 subsidiaries in the USA and China. 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.
