About

CAD Works Engineering was originally founded in 1993 but the history behind the company stretches back to 1859 with divisions of the company represented by Mitchell Dryers and Mitchell Mixers.

We provide the design and manufacture of drying, calcining and related plant and equipment to the chemical, mineral, pharmaceutical, waste to energy and food industries.

Our Research and Development commitment, together with extensive test facilities enables us to recommend optimum and cost-effective systems for a chosen application. We prefer to work closely with our customers to understand their process needs as well as business goals and vision for their investment.

The extensive range of equipment we provide can be adapted to suit many forms on a batch or continuous process flow basis, from laboratory sized units processing a few kilos of material to large scale units capable of processing many tonnes per hour.

We also provide the design, manufacture and rebuild of intensive mixing equipment. Our standard range covers laboratory equipment and production mixers up to 620 litres chamber capacity for use in the rubber and plastics industry.
