Aston Manor Cider trusts in Bellmer technology
Aston Manor Cider, the largest independent cider maker in the world, selected Bellmer when it needed expert support for the configuration and installation of a new fruit processing facility.
The site at Stourport-on-Severn is an entirely new location for the business. With the UK being the largest cider market in the world and with this expansion in capacity and capability a key priority for Aston Manor, this was an important project.

Progress was such that the installation was able to accept apples to be milled and press ahead of schedule – assisting the business as it managed the harvest of apple in October and November.
Rodney Clifford/Paul Clifford, production director at Aston Manor said: “Working with Bellmer we choose a WinklePress WPX-3 and they delivered and installed this, together with most of the supporting infrastructure. This included the apple receiving arrangements, storage silos, the water flume system and so on - in effect, the whole process from start to finish. We have been delighted with the input and support from Bellmer throughout and their contribution to the successful installation of a new facility at a new location has been considerable.”

The site will process an increasing volume of fruit as additional orchards start to supply bittersweet apples.
