  • If you’re old enough to remember 1996, what did it mean to you? There was a royal divorce, a cloned sheep named Dolly, the DVD became widely available and Mad Cow Disease hit Britain.

    But for Electro Motion, it was the year that we launched our first website and we’re proud to say that in 1996 we were one of only 257,601 websites WORLD WIDE whereas there’s over 1 billion websites today (source internetlivestats.com).

    Electro Motion's 1st Website on Netscape

    It was a bold step back then and one that made the world a much smaller place. Making that investment helped bring ourselves, and the second hand machinery industry bang up to date and shaped the way we would do business today.

    Above is a visual of how the original website looked back in 1996 using "the" leading Netscape Navigator browser and by contrast, our new website launched early 2016.

    We've come a long way since we started in 1948 and we like to think we're one of the best around but like all used machinery suppliers (and all suppliers for that matter) we're all trying to tell you that we're better than the rest, offer the best prices, the best service but until you take the plunge you'll never know. So, call us now on 0116 276 6341 and let us help you make the right choice for you.

    Now, on to a few other things that were happening 20 years ago in 1996

    Toy Story, originally released in 1995 but came to the UK in 1996.."to infinity and beyond"

    Take That broke hearts around the world and announced their split

    Spice Girls took the world by storm

    England crashed out of Euro '96 (sounds familiar)

    Nokia released the iconic 8110 "Matrix" mobile phone 

    Sir Steven Redgrave and Matthew Pinsent took gold at '96 Atlanta Olympic games

     

    That's just a tiny snippet of what else happened in 1996 (besides Electro Motion getting on "t'internet")

  • Leicester City Football Club have done it! After a nail biting season of close calls and fantastic football, Electro Motion are proud that their home team Leicester City have finally been crowned winners of the Barclays Premier League for the first time in their 132 year history. Well done to the whole team and management. 

    Electro Motion Congratulate LCFC on the Premier Title!

    Fondly referred to as the People's Champions, Leicester City FC have touched the hearts and imaginations of football fans and non fans alike from all over the world. The most notable of which is Hollywood star Tom Hanks who, in a recent interview at the premiere of his latest film Hologram for the King, claims to have put a £100 bet on Leicester winning the Premier League at the beginning of the season...hopefully he got the 5000-1 odds offered before the start of the season and it's time to cash in Tom!

    Tom Hanks & LCFC

    With huge celebrations already across Leicester, no doubt those waterlogged eyes will now be firmly fixed on the Champions League next season, we're behind you all the way!

    Of course, we're in the used machinery business and we couldn't write a news post without referring to at least one of our (blue) machines, so to address the balance below is one of our band saws just in case you missed our latest newsletter, you can sign up for those here (see what I did there?)

  • Well, we've been in business since 1948 and in that time we've sold around 400 Colchester lathes to large and small businesses throughout the world.

    Models such as the Colchester Bantam, Chipmaster, Colt, Magnum, Master, Mascot, Mastiff, Student, Tornado and the trusty Triumph have been a regular at Electro Motion over the past 68 years and still are today.

     

    Below is a Colchester Student 1800 that was sold by us 16 years ago

    Colchester Student 1800

     

    Looking back through our archives, we've also found an early Colchester "Electronic" CNC Mastiff manufactured back in 1995 featuring a Fanuc 20-T CNC control and it's probably still going strong today.

    Colchester CNC Mastiff

     

    One of our current stock of Colchester lathes is the Mastiff 1400 (below) with a height of centres of 266mm and a between centres of 2032mm.

  • A used machine is more cost effective than the equivalent quality new machine.  There’s no waiting for a machine to be built.  Some of the machines are not manufactured any more (at least not of the same quality as some of the machines we stock).  We can usually supply your chosen machine within a few days, so if you’re based in Great Britain, you don’t have to wait for a shipment from the other side of the world.
