About Us

We are a company who have been manufacturing mould tools for the rubber industry for the past 50 years. In that time we have grown from a family business started by 3 toolmakers in the centre of Leicester, to a forward-looking manufacturing business, based in our own factory, just off the Ring Road in the south of Leicester.

We are now a company of 14 employees, with the capability to design, manufacture and deliver to your premises (using our own transport), our own Mould Tools, to an agreed Price and Delivery.

Due to the growing shortage of available skilled engineers in the marketplace, we have undertaken a programme of recruiting and training our own apprentice toolmakers over the last 10 years or so, in association with Leicester College (formerly Charles Keene College) and latterly with LETG (Leicester Engineering Group). Many of these apprentices, we are pleased to say, have chosen to remain with the company, and carry on the tradition of manufacturing quality tools for the Rubber Industry.

We purchased our own factory in February of 2005, and took the opportunity to lay out the workplace in a systematic way to promote the speed and efficiency of tool manufacture. Our two bay facility now comprises a conventional toolroom in one bay, with all the usual manual mills, lathes etc, and a separate CNC toolroom with 12 dedicated CNC milling machines.

With a modern IT Network linking all machines and Office CADCAM Facilities, we have the capability to 3-D CNC mill tooling components 24 hours a day (including lights-off working).

We would welcome the opportunity to be able to Quote you for the Design and Manufacture of your Mould Tools. We like to think that we have benefitted from our years of manufacturing experience, and combined this with embracing the efficiencies and capabilities of modern technology to be able to produce tools accurately and cost effectively.

If you think that we could be of any assistance to you in the manufacture of tooling to satisfy your current order requirements, then please do not hesitate to contact me.
