Todd Engineering are currently installing a bespoke commercial spraybooth for world leading sailboat mast and rigging system manufacturer Selden Masts, the 40 metre long booth has been custom designed by our in house CAD engineers to accommodate the full range of sailboat masts made by Selden. The spraybooth can also be sub-divided into four variously sized sections which each operate independently to enable a range of different sized masts to be sprayed at the same time, maximizing productivity and efficiency.

Todd Engineering’s Titan CV Spraybooth is proving popular for 2017 with another installation recently completed for Huddersfield based Mac’s Trucks. The family run firm which was founded in 1973 by present owner Alec McDade is one of the largest family owned truck sales establishments in the UK. The company has recently completed it’s move from their old site on New Hey Road in Outlane, where it has been based for the last 40 years, to a new multi-million pound purpose built facility at Lindley Moor.
The new building houses a 15 bay workshop, including two bays for the new Paintshop as well as two floors of offices. Managing Director Alec McDade said that Mac Trucks are now recruiting to add to its 21-strong workforce – with a variety of roles in the Paintshop, Fabrication shop, mechanics and valeting.
Todd Engineering were selected from a number of spraybooth manufacturers to supply the Paintshop equipment, including the 18 metre long Titan Commercial Vehicle spraybooth. The spraybooth was designed to fit into the end bay of the new building and incorporates roof mounted air handling plant to maximise available space in the rest of the Paintshop. The specification also includes High, Mid and Low Level Lighting using Todd Engineering’s state-of-the-art LED boards, Relux calculations were performed by Todd Engineering to demonstrate how the system easily achieves high quality lighting levels in excess of 1750 lux – giving painters a perfectly illuminated environment whilst maximising energy efficiency. The spraybooth features Inverter variable speed drive motors as standard and a PLC touch screen control panel, for further information on our Titan CV Spraybooths please contact our sales team.
Todd Engineering have recently completed a new Titan Commercial Spraybooth installation for the worlds largest package delivery company UPS, the new spraybooth facility is part of a brand new 32,000 square meter package sorting and delivery facility at the DP World London Gateway logistics site in the south east of England. At close to £120 million, this project constitutes one of UPS’s largest infrastructure investments outside of the Untied States in the company’s history. The Facility, currently going through the final phase of completion, will act as a UK hub and distribution centre for the local area as well as key gateway to UPS’s global transportation network.
