The FCE Group has steadily evolved since its humble beginnings as Fife Contract Engineers, established in 1988 as a machine shop.

Today we sell our process machinery all over the world, in particular our Hogan Vibratory Bin Dischargers, our Taylor Stiles Dicers and our FCE Trailer Supports. Acquisitions of design and manufacturing capability from Taylor Stiles and James Bertram Engineering has allowed FCE Hydraulics Ltd to expand our range of products into pulp, hemp and paper reel splitting, paper ‘side run’ splitters, wire winders, conveyors, dicers, granulators, machine feed systems, process layouts and design, and diversification over recent years has seen our engineers develop products for linoleum, plastics and ceramics manufacture.

With FCE Hydraulics Ltd and FCE Remik Ltd all under one roof – we are in great shape to meet our customers’ exacting needs as a one stop shop.
