About Us

Constantly striving to solve the handling problems of tomorrow

for over 75 years


Here at Haith we are proud to say that we are one of the only companies in our sector to be continuously owned by the same family since the company was founded.

It all began when, at 18 years old, Geoff Haith started carrying out repairs for local farmers leading him to realise that there was a need for a more mechanised way of washing and grading root vegetables, with his engineering ability and farming background he designed and manufactured machines for carrot, potato and beetroot handling.

The business, until recently, has been run by Geoff’s five sons and daughter, backed by a great young management team to ensure the continued success of the company, there are over 120 people employed at our factory in the UK and multiple agents around the world promoting the Haith brand globally resulting in a network of excellent installations and satisfied customers worldwide.

Haith has continued to grow in size and strength and has moved on 3 occasions to larger premises with more production area, this has led to the present ultra-modern wholly owned facility with around 6,000 m² of production space on a 6 acre site in South Yorkshire which is equipped with the most up to date CNC laser, waterjet and bending equipment.

Haith have achieved many awards for machine design over the years and are especially proud to have twice been awarded the highest accolade in the UK, The Queen’s Award for Enterprise, both times in the Innovation category, as the only company in the field to hold this prestigious award, Haith’s emphasis on continual innovation and development with a view to keeping the UK vegetable industry at the forefront of technology has been acknowledged.

3D design has become a major focus for Haith allowing prospective clients to see a reality view of what they are buying, another useful technological innovation is the ability to capture data and analyse and control all functions of each component in the line from one point, preventing costly stoppages and utilizing the full capacity of the machinery, our in house PLC programming department design bespoke control systems which incorporate the most up to date software to meet requirements of the end user all from the HMI screen so users have a visual point to see how the complete system is running.

Through a continual program of R&D Haith are now the UK leading manufacturers of root crop handling machinery, from single machines to turn-key facilities to suit growers, processors and packers of all sizes, backed by many years of experience to help customers to make the right choice for their business, coupled with our working partners we can deliver a complete field to pack solution and include optical inspection, multi head weighing, end of line robot packing and full project management.
