Hot on the heels of their 75th anniversary, Teagle Machinery celebrates as the 20,000th Tomahawk Bale Processor rolled off the production line on 9 September 2019.  In 1984 the Tomahawk range was launched with the ‘Lightning’ model, with a retail price of £700. Over 30 years and 20,000 machines later the flagship Tomahawk C12 Calibrator retails for £69,905 and features an electric regulation system for driverless operation, with Bluetooth controls for remote operation. Through continual investment in product development the Tomahawk range has grown to be the cornerstone of the company’s portfolio which now features 14 models and contributes around 50% to Teagle’s annual sales.

Much has changed since this family-owned business was established in 1943. The company now employs around 200 staff from its base near Truro in Cornwall and exports to over 50 countries world-wide on a regular basis. Continual investment in production technology utilising robot welding, CNC machining and powder coat paint has positioned the brand as a market leader in the straw processing sector on an international stage with Tomahawk machines found in specialist applications such as landscaping, processing materials for green biomass energy, as well as agriculture.

Tom Teagle, sales director said: “We would like to thank all of our customers, UK dealers, international distributors and members of the team at Teagle for their contribution to this significant milestone”.
