Our secret sauce for happy customers

The technology we use

From our experience we've learnt only Japanese CNC machines provide the accuracy and precision we need to ensure our team produce highly accurate components for our customers. We invest in the best CNC machines and technologies so our team can do the best job for our customers - and love doing it!

CAD/CAM & MRP

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. We should have fully moved over by end 2017
