History of Plant Nappy

Manvers Engineering founded

Our Founder worked in the tunnelling industry specialising in separation technology. He worked alongside environmental managers who had become frustrated by the failure of metal drip trays.
They were often damaged, making them useless, overflowing or even being emptied out by the operator. With thousands of machines on site, it was impossible to police.

The Company continued to specialise in the design and development of separation technology (at that time, separating earth and water). By now, they have become the ‘go to’ for separation in the civil engineering arena.

The failing alternative

Alternatives to metal drip trays begin to enter the market. They are ineffective and not user-friendly, containing many parts for onsite assembly.
Our Founder along with family members and industry professionals, employed their expertise in separation, researched materials and technologies and subsequently developed a prototype which inspired further advancements.


Patent application submitted.
Environmental managers were excited about what would later be called, the Plant Nappy.
