"I used Dalton Engineering to equip five broiler sheds in 2015 with feeders, drinkers, plumbing and feed silo's. I was very pleased with the quality of the work and the equipment which is performing very well. They worked in accordance with the programme and were finished for the planned housing dates. I find all the staff very knowledgeable and helpful at finding the best solution. They also carry a good stock of spares and consumables. I look forward to continuing to do business with them. "

"We have been refurbishing our sites for the last 4/5 years, mainly using equipment supplied by Dalton Engineering, we have been very pleased with their service, prompt deliveries along with helpful and knowledgeable support for their products.

"During a recent full equipment fit out of 2 new broiler sheds, we found Dalton to be a modern and dynamic company but with traditional values of building things to last. Their installation service is second to none"

"I have used Dalton Engineering to supply and install heat exchangers, hot water heaters and pan feeders as well as supply spares for drinkers etc. Their work is always carried out to a very high standard and most importantly it is always completed on time to fit in with our tight schedule. Everyone at the company is knowledgeable and cooperative, making it a pleasure to do business with them."

"I’m a new entrant into poultry farming and have only been farming for 8 years. Dalton have been a hive of useful information and advice over the years. As a new entrant I’ve been on a steep learning curve. The guys have a limitless amount of knowledge and experience and they are always willing to talk things through and explain how things work. I've modernised three poultry units with feeding and drinking systems and carried out numerous repairs to a 30 year old farm, I couldn't have done this without their help. Nothing is too much trouble for them, even when trying to source a part for something that is now obsolete they either come up trumps or are happy to tell me who to contact.

Whether you’re buying something little or large they still treat you with the same great customer service.

By the way, your fly killing spray thing I bought last year was so good that we put one in the egg room of each barn, one in the packing station and even one in my front room. They made a massive difference. Probably the best fly defence product I have ever used."


"We use Dalton Engineering because they focus their attention on reliable, robust product design and provide excellent customer service. They are committed to our requirements and understand the pressures involved in running a developing broiler farm."

"Having purchased equipment and services from Dalton Engineering for many years, the systems in place make for efficient and timely deliveries. Staff are very knowledgeable of both the equipment and the industry they supply. The cost of equipment and services are competitive and sympathetic to our specific needs. The Lakes Free Range Egg Company look forward to continue trading with yourselves as our business grows and develops."

Roger Gill
Head of Agriculture

"It’s not hard to like Dalton Engineering - their friendly and knowledgeable staff are genuinely great to deal with. They are keen to give great advice and will always find the correct solution for my business.

Add in the competitive pricing, speedy, efficient delivery, skilled installation service and it’s easy to see why I have been a customer for so many years. Long may it continue!"

Steve Craddock
G & K Craddock & Son

"I can’t praise Dalton Engineering enough. It’s rare to find a company so willing to do everything I ask of it. My drive units were supplied and installed with the minimum of fuss and work extremely well, but it’s not only the big stuff they are good at. We got exactly the same excellent service when we ordered our Digital Min/Max thermometers. These units are easy to work with and give you exactly what you need to know - just like Daltons!"

"Nothing is too much trouble for these lads! In times of need, you do need a friendly, helpful team that understands exactly what you want. Using their amazing experience and product knowledge Daltons can quickly identify a solution to any problem. The products are then despatched immediately, from their own warehouse, to arrive the next day. No fuss, no drama, just a genuine willingness to help. Highly recommended."
