Inspection and quality assurance


We operate from our 11500ft² premises in the West Midlands, a short distance from the M6 motorway network.

Our facility is second to none, thanks to our continued investment in CADCAM, CNC and CMM technology.

With a balance of youth and experience, the capabilities of our 30+ employees blend with the application of cutting edge technology in perfect harmony.

Sophisticated CAD systems are used to generate tooling CAD models. 3 and 5 axis CNC machining centres turn the digital concept into physical reality. CMM arms and software are applied to verify the dimensional accuracy of the machined tools. Finally, our highly skilled workforce completes the process with hand finishing and assembly.

Naturally, we are ISO9001 accredited.

We are a key supplier to our customers, and it is the maintained investment in our facilities and people, and the application of manufacturing processes and techniques that have been honed over time, that we believe gives us the advantage.
