About Us


About the Company

Holman Wilfley Ltd is one of the worlds most established and recognised suppliers of gravity shaking tables and has been manufacturing gravity concentration equipment for the past 26 years.
Originally set up on the Wheal Jane mine site in Cornwall in 1998 it relocated to larger premises in 2011 at Pool in Redruth next to South Crofty Mine.

The company inherited the licensed OEM Holman and Wilfley technology from the original manufacturers making them the only global company that still produces the well established, genuine premium brand gravity tables.

Both the Holman and Wilfley shaking tables have been in use for the best part of a century and Holman Wilfley Ltd have been continuously developing the design, construction methods and materials to improve the product lines and remain the preferred supplier of high quality gravity separation equipment to the mining, minerals and recycling industries.

Holman Wilfley pride themselves on being the best in the business and work very closely with their clients to make sure they are achieving the highest performance out of their gravity concentrating circuits.
