JW Installations and Westrup join forces in the UK
Our parent company JW Installations UK Ltd and Westrup A/S are joining forces to offer customers in the UK more than 90 years design and manufacture expertise in the seed and grain machinery industry.
JW Installations has won the UK contract to distribute Westrup equipment. Known worldwide as one of the leading manufacturers in seed and grain cleaning and processing lines, Westrup offers more sizes and types of seed machines than any competitor.
For JW Installations the partnership will further boost the range of machinery and services they can offer customers. The company already owns Allmet Grain Driers and exclusively distribute Tornum AB products in the UK as well as supplying Skandia handling equipment and Kongskilde products.
JW Installations’ Director James White said: “We are thrilled to be expanding with the well-known and well-established brand of Westrup. Their high quality, reliable machinery complements the trusted ranges we already offer and provides more choice and additional bespoke solutions for our customers. Also, because the machinery can handle any type of crop including grass seed, malting barley, spices, vegetable seeds and cotton we can now also reach out to new industries such as laboratories and recycling plants.”
Both companies share similar beginnings forged from family enterprises – one in England and the other in Denmark. JW Installations was founded by father and son, John and James White and is now run by James and his brother Charles. Westrup was founded by brothers, Knud and Troels Westrup. Both have strong, solid foundations offering user friendly, robust and efficient service solutions based on customer satisfaction, innovation and partnership working.
Fellow Director at JW Installations, Charles White added: “Westrup can be assured that their products are in safe hands with JW Installations. We have an extensive customer base and a sound infrastructure with experienced and diligent sales, installation and after care work force, allowing us to deliver a first rate service. This partnership really does optimize products and services for customers.”
Torben Jepsen of Westrup said: “At Westrup we are absolutely confident that joining forces with JW Installations will be beneficial for both agricultural and agro-industrial businesses in the UK. As an end-user you will always look into what your supplier can offer, not only in the sales process, but also when it comes to planning, installation and after sales. JW Installations has exactly the infrastructure that ensures an excellent sales and after sales service to customers.
“Furthermore, JW Installations closely co-operates with well-established contractors and installation companies that can offer high-quality Westrup grain cleaning and seed processing solutions to the end-users in the UK.”

The first exciting development from this collaboration will be the launch of a new Allmet range of industrial grain driers for the UK market in the new year, with capacities of up to 300t/hour.

The family run company came to the aid of youngsters at Bolton-on-Swale St Mary's Church of England Primary School.

We also wanted to mark our diamond jubilee and we felt supporting a local school football team was a great way to give something back to the community that has supported Allmet over the past 60 years. We hope the new gear will help to bolster their confidence and pride on the playing field."
