About Us

Neutron Equipment provides machinery Sales, Service and Maintenance to the Recycling, Biomass, Scrap & Forestry sectors. Partnerships include ASTEC, TAURUS, ECOHOG and Eggersmann. Neutron represent these companies in the UK as a whole or on an Area basis, with full support of the Companies Sales and Service teams.

Neutron Equipment Ltd was founded by Aaron McVeigh & Mikey Bradshaw in 2018, and are based in Reading, Berkshire. Neutron began life as the UK and Ireland exclusive dealer for American machine manufacturer Peterson Pacific Corporation.

Neutron sold their first Peterson Horizontal Grinder to TMA Bark in 2019 and haven’t looked back since.

Not content with capturing the Peterson marketplace, Neutron then met scrap metal machinery experts TAURUS in Italy in December 2020 and became the dealership for them, as well as ECOHOG which run alongside TAURUS machines for metal separation. Our most recent contract in February 2021, expanding Neutron further, is with German giant Eggersmann GmbH, with a renowned product range including BACKHAUS compost turners, TEUTON single shaft & FORUS twin shaft shredders.

Aaron & Mikey have built a team around them to support the growing business. In February 2020, just as the UK went into lockdown, Aaron was joined in the business by Ben Duchesne who took on the role of Service Manager. Shortly after in March, Darren Gathercole joined the company as General Manager. Both Ben and Darren have years of experience within the recycling sectors. Since then, Neutron has welcomed four sales managers, three service engineers, a parts manager and administration staff to support the expanding business.
