Concrete Slab Presses

Here you can see photographs and videos and listen to memories of Fielding and Platt's famous concrete slab presses.

The company made a single-mould and a three-mould version of their concrete slab press. Did you know that 90% of Britain's pavements are paved using slabs made on Fielding's presses?!

If you remember designing, machining, fitting, installing or maintaining any of the presses here please share your memories of working on them. You can do this by clicking on the machine you worked on, scrolling to the bottom of the page and clicking on the words Add a comment about this page.
