Linton Solutions provides a full range of economical environmental solutions for industrial, food and agricultural markets.  Its products and services include the supply and installation of effluent and slurry treatment systems, tank storage systems, separation systems, as well as the manufacture of door and screen systems for industrial and agricultural buildings.

As a result of this investment, Linton has secured £450,000 worth of orders in the Republic of Ireland, England and Holland. With a target of achieving export sales worth over £500,000 by 2011, Linton is progressing well towards its objective.

Our new Sales Manager will further enhance our management team and will make a significant contribution as we focus on driving sales in export markets.”
