About Deescan

Established in 1990 under the directorship of Jim Taylor of JT Systems, Llangollen and Hugh Greasley of Newland Engineering, Hyde, Deescan initially built control panels for the commercial laundry industry, and telescopic vehicle loading systems. Since this time it has grown to encompass various other industries, providing them with control systems and support on a regular basis.

We are a small, experienced company who like to provide a personal and flexible service in order to meets our clients' needs. Our clients come back to us because we are small enough to respond rapidly to quote requests, design requests and breakdown issues and we believe we are competitively priced. We like to get to know our clients and build long-lasting relationships so that our workshop becomes an extension of their engineering department.
