Walthambury - your perfect choice for all your packing needs, including bagging, robot palletizing, weighing, sealing and conveying projects. Walthambury forms part of W J Morray Engineering Ltd. and was created from a combination of technical ingenuity, creative problem solving and steadfast business sense when Mr Ray Jackman, then a consultant engineer joined forces with a local farmer, W. C. Halls of Walthambury Farm, near Great Waltham, Essex. Along with Mr Tony Monk, the head engineer for Mr Halls at Walthambury Farm, they designed and produced the first Walthambury potato weigher in 1964. Following its acceptance by local farmers a pallet attachment was also developed.

This was used with an Massey Ferguson MF11 potato harvester to weigh, bag and palletise in the field all in one go. Operations that previously would have to be conducted separately in a lengthy and tortuous process. 

Soon the design was adapted to work with other potato harvesters like those produced by Grimme and Whitsed, like the example shown below which dates from 1965.
