A&Z Engineering (Reading) Limited undertake both low and high volume production, using CNC controlled precision engineering equipment for turning and milling with the aid of our new CNC co-ordinate measuring equipment, MasterCam CAD-CAM system and our highly skilled engineers.  We have also recently invested in a new MRP system by Tricorn.

Over the past five years we have updated and grown our machine list allowing for increased productivity and capacity. The machines we invest in are high end, brand new lathes and mills - we do not compromise on the quality nor the brand to ensure we keep our products at a high standard.  Our current plant list comprises:
