About the employer

Since 1988, we have grown consistently and are still one of the leading companies in the Industry with almost 100 employees operating around the clock, 7 days a week. We service over 1000 customers monthly in every area of the UK.

A huge range of customers also gives us a varied and exciting mix of contracts from a Micky Mouse clock face, Interior metalwork for some of the UK's most exciting brand names such as All Saints and Paul Smith to working on the latest Aero Engines or Military Vehicles for Rolls Royce and BAE Systems. You name it, we cut it.

Waterjet Cutting was added to our services in 2003 to allow us to profile a wider range of materials in thicknesses upto 150mm and in lengths of upto 9m. This is a similar process to Laser Cutting but it uses high pressure water to cut the material instead of a laser beam. Our Waterjet process is accredited to AS9100 for all aerospace applications.

Today our philosophy remains the same. A fast delivery of quality parts regardless of volume to anywhere in the UK.
