Home / About Us

At Mechline Developments we pride ourselves on being an innovative manufacturer and provider of quality products within the food service and hospitality industry.

Having started with the development of our QuickLink mobilisation systems, our focus was – and will always be – to make life easier and better for our customers. Through continuous research and ever-growing expertise we understand and deliver what our customers need and value.

Whether manufactured by us, or selected by us from specialist partner manufacturers, our unwavering commitment to quality and innovation can be assured.

Our products are engineered to address common operational issues within the commercial food service and hospitality industry, with solutions expanding all four cornerstones of our ethos:

EFFICIENCY

Efficiency is at the heart of Mechline’s design principles. Mechline offer many product ranges which offer both energy and water savings which in turn save money for the end user.

OUR STORY

We started life in 1984 as a commercial kitchen equipment service and installation company. In 1988, we developed our first patented product (QuickLink) – a quick disconnect system for catering sinks that allows for easy cleaning. Since then we have focussed on building a portfolio of innovative and unique products for the food service industry and more recently a range of products for the waste and facilities management sectors.

Mechline works to be the authority and market leader on products engineered to address common issues in the food services and environmental sectors – whether it’s in function, design or operational ease-of-use. The combination of experience and know-how ensures our products enhance the working environment for the operators, making life easier for our customers and best practice second-nature.

We manufacture the majority of our products at our head office in Milton Keynes, and you are welcome to visit us to see our manufacturing and testing facilities.
