About us

During 2019 Apropa Machinery celebrated its 65th Anniversary. This marked 65 years of service to individuals, manufacturers and corporations doing business throughout Europe and the world.

Apropa was Founded in 1954 by Dr. Michael Mayer, the company was established in Poultry, City of London with a principal mission of supplying specialized machinery to the Foam Industry as well as additives for the meat industry. This dual specialization led to the formation of two entities: the first being Jameson Equipment (Trading) Limited, known as JET throughout the industry, which supplied foam machinery and the other being Jameson Equipment Limited which supplied chemicals to the meat industry.

The early 1950s saw the birth of the foam industry and Jameson worked closely with the pioneers of this young industry, working in the UK with British Vita - who were one of the first foam manufacturers - and with Mac. A.King who were one of the first foam converters.In 1957, Ralph Borchard, the stepson of Michael Mayer, joined the company and took over the responsibilities for the machine side of the business.

JET has represented Albrecht Baumer and Grauff from Germany Since 1954. This alliance led to a long-term professional association, which still continues to this day. Under the direction of Ralph Borchard, JET began to represent more companies allied with the foam and furniture industries, providing our customers with more diverse and technically advanced choices.

The company split into two totally separate entities on January 1st, 1974. Jameson Equipment Limited, under the direction of Michael Mayer, continued to supply additives to the food industry. Ralph Borchard founded Apropa Machinery Limited, which took over the sole distribution of equipment to the foam industry and all allied industries.

In 1976, Ralph’s son, Jonathan joined Apropa and right away began his training at Albrecht Baumer for a period of six months. During this period, Jonathan learned not only the language but also the details of the foam machinery manufacturing business.

In 1986, Ralph Borchard passed away after a short illness which led Jonathan to take over the role of Managing Director of the company. Jonathan continues to this day to provide direction to the company and interact with our wide range of customers.

In 2012, Jonathan moved the company to its present location in Teddington, Middlesex.

Apropa Machinery are proud to have been at the forefront of the U.K foam industry for nearly Six decades. They have got this far through hard work, superior products, dedication and loyalty to their valued customers and integrity in the way they conduct their business. Apropa look forward to continuing their business relationships with their large list of satisfied customers and gaining new customers who will appreciate their work ethic and the way they have always maintained their company on the cutting edge of current technology.
