Founded in 1927, British Rema was an early pioneer in the field of particle size reduction and size control specialising in milling, micronising and classification. Over 50 years the company developed its own range of proprietary equipment, introducing early versions of the jet mill and various air classification systems, and extending its applications beyond the traditional mineral processing markets into fine chemicals, food and pharmaceuticals to a world-wide customer base.
In the 1970s British Rema introduced its contract processing service to provide customers with a practical alternative to acquiring their own capital equipment when their volume needs were one-off, small or intermittent. Demand meant that this service quickly developed to the point where many customers with complex or specialist requirements outsourced their entire production to the British Rema facility.
In the 1980s British Rema developed a range of its own micronised materials produced to the tightly-controlled size distributions required by today’s industrial chemical and mineral industries, which its Chemical Sales Division now markets internationally.
In 2007 British Rema acquired Powder Technology Ltd, a company supplying a complementary range of processing equipment such as dryers and mixers. This has been fully integrated into the product range and allows our engineers to address a much broader range of industrial particle processing applications as well as integrated containment systems when the products are sensitive or hazardous.
Originally a subsidiary of the well-known Sheffield-based engineering group, Edgar Allen, British Rema has been an independent private company since 1980 and is a member of Phillips Rema Group.
