Greenwood Magnetics is a family-run business in its third generation based in Rochdale, North East of Manchester, UK.

We have specialised in magnetic separation solutions since 1948, working closely with a wide range of industries, moving in more recent years to focus more on intricate and complex magnet designs for the food, pharmaceutical, oil and gas sectors.


Pictured above is HS Greenwood’s factory, which was used from 1948 to 2005 and the original brochure from the 1950s.

Starting from humble beginnings, the company has seen a flurry of expansion, with a growing sales team, a well-established CAD department and a high-calibre fabrication team directed by two production team leaders. We are now one of the UK’s leading magnetic separator manufacturers, working closely with some of the world’s largest companies.

Our location in Rochdale houses our sales team, accounts, CAD department and fabrication facilities. This allows for an efficient and seamless manufacturing process for every one of our products. This creates a suitable and productive work environment that allows us to create a range of bespoke and innovative products, each tailored to the requirements of the client, down to the smallest detail.

Following our 75th anniversary in 2023, the company is looking ahead to further expansion into the global market. By constantly developing new marketing and sales strategies, as well as expansion to our team, Greenwood Magnetics hopes to be able to bring its long running expertise and excellent service across the globe, as well as continuing to provide effective separation solutions for our clients here in the UK.
