Having joined the company in 1999 Matthew assumed the role of Managing Director in 2000 following the death of his father and company owner, John. Under Matthew’s stewardship Central Patternmaking has evolved from a traditional patternmaking company into a fully diverse tooling manufacturer employing the latest CADCAM technologies.
John joined Central Patternmaking as a sixteen year old over forty years ago. A trusted friend and colleague of John Sawbridge, John Green’s loyalty and expertise and has been a key factor in the continued success of Central Patternmaking.
A veteran of the automotive sector and our Sales Manager since 2006, Alan has been an integral part of the company’s expansion into new markets. He specialises in mould tools and jigs and fixtures.
With a balance of youth and experience, the capabilities of our 30+ employees blend with the application of cutting edge technology in perfect harmony.
We provide our employees with a secure and rewarding working environment, and we benefit from a very low level of staff turnover.
We are committed to training, to ensure that our employees are fully equipped with the skills necessary to excel.
R-TEK LTD required a UK gauge maker to manufacture and repair gauges for checking automotive interior trim parts. Central Patternmaking have now been delivering gauges to R-TEK LTD since 2009.
Communication is good during the design and manufacturing stages. The gauges are manufactured to our specification and to a very good standard of workmanship. Central will suggest better ways to do things. Most importantly, when the gauge is delivered there has been no remedial work or corrections required. I would recommend Central Patternmaking to another company.
