About us
Walthambury - your perfect choice for all your packing needs, including bagging, robot palletizing, weighing, sealing and conveying projects.

Walthambury forms part of W J Morray Engineering Ltd. and was created from a combination of technical ingenuity, creative problem solving and steadfast business sense when Mr Ray Jackman, then a consultant engineer joined forces with a local farmer, W. C. Halls of Walthambury Farm, near Great Waltham, Essex.

Along with Mr Tony Monk, the head engineer for Mr Halls at Walthambury Farm, they designed and produced the first Walthambury potato weigher in 1964. Following its acceptance by local farmers a pallet attachment was also developed.

This was used with an Massey Ferguson MF11 potato harvester to weigh, bag and palletise in the field all in one go. Operations that previously would have to be conducted separately in a lengthy and tortuous process.

Soon the design was adapted to work with other potato harvesters like those produced by Grimme and Whitsed, like the example shown below which dates from 1965.

As the success of Walthambury's harvester mounted weighing machines grew Tony Monk set to work designing the first of a series of packing house bagging machines that would lead to the modern M720 and M426 machines we see today; the Walthambury 15, a machine with four filling heads mounted on a rotating turntable which, with trained operators, could weigh and fill up to 600 bags an hour.

Some examples of this machine are still in service to this day as reliable as ever.From this small beginning the Walthambury range of agricultural machinery was born. Always striving for innovation and solutions to age old farming problems.
Soon other equipment was designed, such as the oscillating spreader elevator, conceived to make the most of available storage space, and the 'Nodding Donkey' W30E Box Loader as well as various pick-up units for use with potatoes, carrots, onion and feed cubes.

By the early 1970's, WJ Morray Engineering Ltd. was formed and the Walthambury range was in full production at new premises and with extra staff to cope with the influx of orders from all over the country.
Since then W J Morray Engineering Ltd. and the Walthambury range of equipment has gone from strength to strength, always breaking new technological ground and meeting new challenges. With the development of a close partnership with Fuji Yusoki Kogyo and the adoption of their Fuji-Ace palletising robots new possibilities opened up which guided the development of the Walthambury range to what it is today.
