Since 1972 when Keith Shelbourne purchased the business assets of Reynolds Engineering Ltd and formed Shelbourne Reynolds Engineering Ltd, Shelbourne Reynolds has been designing and manufacturing farm machinery in Suffolk, England.
The 110,000 square foot factory on a 5-acre site is in rural Stanton near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, England and currently employs 150 people and utilities some of the most sophisticated manufacturing equipment including: CNC machine centres, laser steel cutting machines and one of the UK’s largest powder coat paint facilities. Most of the products currently manufactured are machines that originated in our own design office and have been evolved and improved.
A very high proportion of the manufacturing is done in house including all machining and gear cutting, this means that specific drives can be manufactured for specific applications rather than compromising on a mass produced “off the shelf” drive. Accountability is very much a keyword in the Shelbourne manufacturing philosophy.
Possibly best know for its Stripper Header, a unique design of combine header which stripped the grain away from straw thus increasing dramatically the combines overall performance, Shelbourne Reynolds over the years have honed their product offering into three seasonal areas, that being, Harvesting, Groundcare and Livestock.
Shelbourne Reynolds have been supplying machinery to Ernest Doe since day one with hedge cutters and verge mowers now being by far the biggest sellers but diet feeders, muck spreaders, cubical bedders and even one or two Stripper Headers a year still feature.
