It could be argued that the Machine Tools Industry forms the spine of most if not all manufacturing worldwide. It complements our expertise in Engineering, and also includes the Tooling, Cutting Tools and Workholding sectors. The machines are The Mother Machines with an impact as broad as it is incisive, affecting pretty much every metal-based manufacturing process worldwide.
Focusing on bespoke high-precision machinery and components the industry is involved in creating products as diverse as computers, mobile phones, aircraft, printers, bikes and satellites!
But, even though it’s probably safe to say that this is a sector underpinning the entire manufacturing industry, as the quote implies; its most essential component is you.
