Our History

  • The Company founder, Mr David Overton,  started developing CIP in the 1950's.
  •  In 1961 he started Suncombe Ltd to further develop this technology.
  •  Over the next few years he found that the quality of hygienic processing equipment was not suitable for CIP and amalgamated a process equipment company to start producing processing equipment.
  •  Developing many of the hygienic standards and technologies the company continued its organic growth and stabilised its operation.
  •  In the 1990's an engineering company, LTE Engineering was purchased to incorporate their knowledge of detailed engineering and new  precision techniques.
  • In the early 2000's a niche cleaning company, CIProcess Ltd was purchased to add some niche products to the portfolio.
  • In 2011 Suncombe celebrated their 50th Anniversary.
  • From our beginnings in 1961 we have become a world renowned hygienic equipment and system supplier, with a wide portfolio of products, tremendous experience and a worldwide client base.
