MMS has been involved in button security since the early days of floating needle attachment. Since then machines to attach virtually any button type have been designed and manufactured in the Leeds factory. 18 years ago MMS invented the first automatic button shank wrapping machine to use the elastomeric heat sealable thread. This range of machines has been further developed over this time and the state of the art Mk 11 range is currently in production.
On a recent visit to a UK shirt factory Prince Charles was offered the opportunity to use the MMS Mk 11 automatic button wrapping machine to secure shirt buttons. He soon picked up the technique and was able to operate the machine with aplomb!
MMS UK exhibited this year at the Texprocess exhibition in Germany on stand C86 in hall 5. On display for the first time was the most advanced button wrapping machines ever produced in the form of the MK 18 and Mk 19.
