GET DIRECT ACCESS TO OUR TECHNICAL TEAM

We provide direct access to those with know-how from machinery design to technical expertise.

PTL was founded with a clear objective: to create high-quality machinery, together with our customers, focused on simplifying operations and improving efficiency.  

Jim and Mary Halliday founded PTL in 1988. Prior to forming PTL, Jim worked as the chief engineer in a chocolate factory, designing and maintaining chocolate machinery. It was from this hands-on experience, in both machinery design and chocolate processing, that Jim saw an opportunity in the market.  

Our objective is to work closely with our customers, deliver effective solutions and build long-term partnerships. We promise a personal approach where you deal directly with the people at the heart of the business.   

What this means for you?

Open communication

Transparent, timely and clear communication always.

Express your ideas; we will listen, offer our advice and work closely with you.

 

Access to expertise

We know the bar and chocolate industries inside and out.

We have hands-on experience and understand both engineering and process challenges.

 

Responsiveness

We understand the urgency required and are responsive – whatever the challenge.

Whether it’s a design request or you need support, we are here to help.
