Brief History and Background of Bosch Manesty


In 1905 a firm of manufacturing chemists in Liverpool, called Thompson and Capper Wholesale Limited, invested in and became the sole agency for the F.J. Stokes Machine Co. The agency flourished and manufacturing moved to the Liverpool factory.

To separate the manufacture of pharmaceutical products from the construction of machinery, a new company called Manesty Machines Ltd. was born in 1920. It was during these years that Manesty, with its extensive range of pharmaceutical equipment, developed its reputation as a manufacturer of robust, reliable machinery, a reputation that continues to this day.


In 1937 a new factory was built at Speke, Liverpool, housing both Thompson & Capper and Manesty Machines Ltd. This factory was used until 2001 when Manesty moved to the current location in Knowsley, Merseyside.

Since 1946 Manesty has been through a number of acquisitions and in August 2011 was purchased by the Bosch Group, and now operates under the Bosch Packaging Technology Ltd. name.


Since 2011, Manesty operates under the name of Bosch Packaging Technology Ltd. From laboratory to production scale, the customized Manesty tablet presses and coaters offer highest quality and flexibility to the pharmaceutical industry.
