Manvers Engineering Ltd is a family run company that was established in the 1990’s (creating separation equipment for the tunnelling industries), but it wasn’t until 2008 that development commenced of what is now the market leading product Plant Nappy.


Smart Thinking in Spill Containment

The main goal of the Plant Nappy was to offer a user friendly solution for spill containment that would replace traditional products such as drip trays.  The journey to achieve a viable product wasn’t without its difficulties and many hours were spent testing raw materials and trialling manufacturing processes to perfect the concept.

The final construction is unique, demonstrated by its dual purpose technology allowing the adsorption of oil / fuel whilst filtering out clean rainwater. The Plant Nappy can be made in almost any size and is UV and temperature resistant, fire retardant, high strength yet lightweight, flexible and crush resistant. This means that getting it under any type of machinery is easy. It can either be placed under by hand (if you know where the machine may leak oil from) or the machine /equipment could be driven or rolled onto the Plant Nappy where by the entire machine would then be guarded against spillage. This is great for large equipment on construction sites such as generators. It can be used outdoors in all weather conditions and on any terrain meaning the protection offered is not compromised even in extreme environments.

Core Values

With a background in mining, tunnelling and construction industries yet passionate about environmental impact, Manvers Engineering Ltd are always striving to develop products that allows others to contribute to greener construction.  Masses of time, energy and money go into research and development.  This combined with the dedication of staff ensures their products are constantly evolving to offer greater efficiency and keep up with high customer expectations as environmental solutions become ever more important.

A great deal of thought, care and attention goes into the British manufactured product with raw materials and labour sourced locally where possible with a large proportion of the process being conducted “in house” at their premises in Barnsley, South Yorkshire.  


Manvers Engineering Ltd is very proud to be amongst those given this rare and prestigious accolade!


Looking to the future

Manvers Engineering Ltd are keen to further develop the Plant Nappy idea and branch out, working on other products that would be useful in the field of spill control and environmental protection.  Manvers Engineering is eager to push boundaries and find scientifically advanced solutions to environmental problems that have previously been too difficult to tackle.  It is this dedication and drive that makes them stand out. 

Many new products are currently in the pipeline that will further expand the product range under the well trusted Plant Nappy brand offering customers more choice and tailored products for their specific needs whilst of course keeping environmental protection at the forefront of any new designs.  

 “We try to meet market needs rather than invent needs and we welcome problems from people within the construction industry that we can possibly help them overcome”
