About us

LAC Conveyors & Automation Limited

We have a long history of designing, manufacturing, and installing innovative conveyor solutions to the UK’s blue-chip industry base.

The company has four distinct divisions serving the following industries: Manufacturing, Logistics, Food & Beverage and Robotics. The latter provides bespoke machinery and robotics into the core three divisions.

We have standard ranges of belt conveyors, roller conveyors, modular belt conveyors and pallet handling equipment that we tailor to make specific to each of the industry sectors that we service.

To become a market leader, innovation is key, and we constantly strive and pressure ourselves to develop, improve and standardise our already broad range of conveyor systems. We also strive to develop our people to ensure a customer’s journey with us, from initial discussions, through to design, manufacture, and installation is as smooth, professional and stress-free as possible.

We would welcome the opportunity to discuss your materials handling requirements.

Here at L.A.C. Conveyors & Automation, we supply a range of stainless-steel converger conveyors for the movement of fresh produce in the food industry.


What is a converger conveyor?

Converger conveyors are used to help maximise production throughputs by merging two or more lanes of product into one conveyor. These types of conveyors are extremely useful tools for delivering product to machines such as pack-sealers, lidding machines, check-weighing, labelling machines, robotic pick and place cells, or final packing operations. When put into part of a wider conveyor system, the benefits become evident with reductions in time of production.

Why a L.A.C. converger conveyor?

Designed by our own in-house team of design engineers, we can accommodate your converger conveyor system production line requirements and make the systems to the highest hygienic industry standards. The converger conveyors are built from stainless steel and fully welded by our qualified fabricator/fitters and equipped with high-quality food-grade belts.
