Euroflow has been established for over twenty years – part of the Millwood Holdings Group.
Whilst delivering a range of standard proven products, Euroflow still remains a leader in bespoke applications. Our design team has many years of experience in solving complex issues with simple solutions. We offer a confidential design and innovation service to our customers using state of the art 3D design software to help you visualise the final product before starting the build.
Reducing the labour content of a product line is where our strengths lay. Projects range from a simple reliable denester to full turnkey projects, consisting of denesting, filling (liquids and solids) sealing, lidding, coding and packing, all designed and manufactured at our works in Boston, Lincolnshire.
Euroflow was originally set up in 1991 by Michael Milnes to supply pumping systems to the water industry. Euroflow rapidly grew and now produces a wide range of specialist process and packaging equipment ranging from food and chemicals to cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and printing.
