MechaTech Systems Ltd are based near Bristol, UK.


Thirty plus years ago, our senior engineers were employed by High Vacuum Technology company, Severn Science Ltd.


Severn Science were then subcontractors and distributors for Edwards Vacuum. Those same engineers carried out installation of control automation to Edwards Freeze Dryers. Today, those engineers form part of our senior management team at MechaTech Systems Ltd.


When Edwards stopped manufacturing Freeze Dryers, we used our considerable knowledge and experience to design and manufacture LyoDry Freeze Dryers. Today, we employ a team of experienced and highly skilled engineers: design, mechanical, electrical and service engineers, as well as our very capable office staff.


We are a hard-working, friendly team and our people are our most valued asset. Our senior management team are former employees of Severn Science Ltd. You can read more about Severn Science and Meet our Team on our sister website

Quality Assured Freeze Dryers



I have been using Mechatech Systems for approximately 9 months now. The service is excellent, fast and efficient. We bought a LyoDry Freeze Dryer and are very happy with it. The support and service was perfect to an extent that we have recently bought another Lyodry . We would happily recommend both the Lyodry Freeze dryer and Mechatech to other laboratories
