Our extensive traditional subcontract machining capacity with highly skilled engineers enables us to tackle a wide range of components on a “one off” or short run basis. Our particular strengths are in long shaft turning, long shaft grinding, internal grinding and honing. Surface grinding, horizontal boring, milling & slotting capacity ensures complete components can be machined in-house.
