The Evolution of Worcester Presses and Titan Monitors

Titan Monitoring Ltd

Made in Midlands, membership organisation for manufacturers, recently sat down with founding member Worcester Presses - one of the UK’s leading mechanical and hydraulic press suppliers. Managing Director Russell Hartill discusses the company’s latest innovations and plans for growth, alongside their sister company Titan Presses & Monitoring - load monitor and press suppliers. 

Titan Presses & Monitoring was established in 2015, with a singular focus on load monitoring, a crucial aspect of many manufacturing processes. As one of the key players in this domain, Titan aimed to supply the industry with ‘top-notch’ load monitoring solutions. Manufacturing their own monitors for several years, they later forged a strategic partnership with another company specialising in engineering and software. This collaboration allowed Titan to enhance their offerings while maintaining their brand identity, paving the way for continued success.

Meanwhile, Worcester Presses, a stalwart in the manufacturing realm, has been at the forefront since its inception. With a rich legacy dating back years, Worcester Presses has become synonymous with excellence in coil handling and press solutions. Their commitment to meeting customer needs, coupled with a relentless pursuit of innovation, has solidified their position as industry leaders.

As demands from the market evolved, so did the offerings from Worcester Presses and Titan. Responding to customer inquiries and market trends, the companies embarked on ventures beyond their traditional scope. Recognizing the need for adjustable stroke presses, Titan ventured into supplying presses tailored to the needs of traditional UK press shops that need the flexibility for their wide range of tooling setups. This move, initiated in 2019, showcased their commitment to adaptability and customer-centric approach.

Furthermore, Worcester Presses expanded its repertoire by offering comprehensive packages to cater to the changing needs of clients. Beyond coil handling and press solutions, the company now provides turnkey solutions, encompassing material handling and packaging. This shift reflects their dedication to providing holistic solutions and streamlining the manufacturing process for their clients.

Both Worcester Presses and Titan recognize the importance of leveraging digital tools and software to enhance efficiency and productivity. While automation remains a prospect for the future, the focus remains on providing state-of-the-art equipment and impeccable service to clients.

Whilst the company has many successes, challenges have also been a theme in both businesses. Recruitment, which is considered a common challenge amongst the manufacturing sector, has posed obstacles for Worcester Presses and Titan alike. However, recent breakthroughs have seen a surge in interest from skilled individuals eager to join the ranks. This is a testament to the reputation and appeal of both companies within the industry.

As Worcester Presses and Titan continue to forge ahead, their sights are set on sustainable growth and innovation. Russell, MD at Worcester and Titan, said: “By prioritising quality, customer satisfaction, and environmental responsibility, we aim to cement our positions as leaders in the manufacturing landscape. With a keen eye on market trends and unwavering dedication, we believe Worcester Presses and Titan are poised to shape the future of manufacturing for years to come.”
