The Start of a Long Association
So in 1970 Morray began its long association with Newlong of Japan who manufactured bag-closing equipment. By 1975 Morray were the leaders in the UK Agricultural Market marketing automatic bagging and weighing machines and closing lines for products ranging from fertilizer to vegetables.
At that time exports to overseas markets began with the USA for a considerable time accounting for almost half Morray’s production. Morray’s growth came to an abrupt halt in 1978 when a disastrous fire wiped out the production facility and it was only after sterling efforts by all the staff and more than adequate insurance cover that the company survived and returned to full production.
