Autumn News from Cottam Brush

What a busy few months it's been here at Cottam!
In our Autumn newsletter we're sharing some of our exciting projects we've worked on this season, an update on our MacMillan Coffee Morning and a link to read about the history of Cottam.

Brushmaking skills help bring back historic mill

Our Process Engineer, Eddie, has been working on a special project lately. Our client, Blaen Plyff Farms, were looking for a sieving brush to be used in their restored grain mill where they produce flour from locally grown wheat.

Using his extensive experience of brush making Eddie handstitched new bristles into the existing leather belt, and this will now be used to sieve flour ready to made into delicious treats.

The mill is the first in the area to produce grain using traditional methods for over 100 years, what an exciting project!



Our new rotary trimmer machine, currently being manufactured in Germany, is part of our investment in technology.
The machine will allow us to trim rotary brushes of various filaments (including wire) efficiently, ensuring our customers get high-quality products with a shorter lead time.
