HMF was founded in 1962 when the first anodising line started production in Field Mills. Their fifty years of experience are a sound foundation for today's products and services.

Trade names for their products include Anolok™ and UA Organic Colour.

The production facility is located in Huddersfield, Yorkshire  where the capabilities include batch anodizing for  aluminum sheets and extrusions.
