Company History

Edward Jackson - An Ingenious Engineer

In 1968, armed with the guiding principle "There's always a way", Edward started developing ideas for the design of special purpose, electronically controlled, paint roller machinery . In the early 1970s prototype machines were developed by Edward, but it was in 1977 that a global merchant bought and resold the first batch of machines to a global market. In 1978 Edward Jackson (Engineer) Ltd was incorporated and the journey began...

Machines Developed and Relationships Formed

With the model for precision-engineered machinery proven, Edward joined forces with a global sales representative (Rob Coleman) to take his ideas and designs to the wider-market, in particular the USA where paint roller production was already on a large scale. As demand for his machines increased, larger premises were required along with extra machinists to assist in production. Soon Jackson machines could be found in Australia, France, Portugal, Ireland and the USA.

Company History

A Family Business

Rachel Jackson worked with Edward in the company from the beginning, her commitment and business skills allowing Edward the freedom to concentrate on his true passion, the machines themselves.

Having always fostered the idea that work, family life, and a love of what you do go hand in hand with success; technical drawings, machine tools and prototype ideas were always present in the Jackson household. Having grown up with and around Jackson machines, Tim inherited his fathers love of engineering, and having completed his masters degree at Newcastle University joined the business full time in 2002.


Company History

Handover of Skills and Experience

Together Tim, Edward and Rachel continued to build the reputation of Jackson machines, offering Reliable, Unique and Integrated solutions.

As Tim's experience grew so did his input in machine research and design, this culminated with his development of the Helix Thermo-Bonder Winder, first unveiled at InterBrush 2016 in Freiburg. Edward's close working relationship with his son allowed for the passing on of knowledge and experience. Tim has then built upon that legacy to keep Jackson machines at the forefront of industry technology whilst keeping true to the foundation of Concise and Clever engineering.
