Paul McNulty required surgery to amputate his left arm following an incident at a branch of electrical retailer Currys in the north-western town of Ashton under Lyne for Ascot Doors, the latter being a Bolton-based company established in 1982.
At the time of the accident in January 2009, Mr McNulty was mending a broken conveyor belt when his sleeve became caught in the mechanism, causing his arm to come into contact with a set of rollers.
In a subsequent case heard at Tameside Magistrates' Court, the firm admitted breaching regulations laid out in the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and was therefore fined.
The 34-year-old told the Manchester Evening News he endured "blinding pain" at the time of the incident, which left his limb irreversibly damaged.
"I knew straight away I was going to lose the arm," he added.
