Our secret sauce to keeping our customers happy with a scrap rate below 1%

Exceptional Quality

From our experience we've learnt that only Japanese CNC machines provide the accuracy and precision we need to ensure our team produce highly accurate components for our customers.


Our team love what they do at A&Z so we invest to make sure they have the best CNC machines and technologies so they can do the best job - and love doing it!

We're fully trained and actively using SolidWorks and SolidCam and can reduce costs by working directly with your electronic drawings.

We're moving to Tricorn so our customers get an even higher level of service and we can work smarter. This should be complete by end 2017.
