Uniquip had been a customer for Geneng for almost 10 years, so when the opportunity arose to buy the company we jumped at it. Uniquip manufactured its own range of pressed metal parts for the rainwater and steel framed building industries, so it was a perfect match for our existing toolmaking and metal stamping expertise.

The Rebirth of a Magnificent Press for Geneng
After completing my apprenticeship in the late 1970’s, I travelled overseas and worked for a company in Holland. This company used a variety of press types and amongst them were coining presses manufactured by CVA, Sussex, England. I was very impressed by these machines. They had standard features like a low center of gravity because the crankshaft was in the bottom section of the press, variable speed, pneumatic clutch, rack & pinion strip feeding and pulling, a strip cropper, air supported bottom bolster and adjustable, variable flow, positive pressure recirculating lubrication system. Up until that time I had mostly only been involved with ‘C’ Frame type presses and even though some of the CVA features were available on different ‘C’ Frame presses, I had never seen any press with all of these features.
