The UK business was established in 1948 when the dominant service was the Metalock cold casting repair department, employing upwards of 100 cold repair site technicians at the height of the business in the 1960s and 1970s. With the decline of the manufacture of cast components from around the start of the 1980s in favour of fabricated components the UK operation was supplemented by the addition of the On Site Machining department centred at our UK head office in Coventry.
Now the dominating service is the On Site machining department which operates all around the world but we also offer advanced specialist welding, the latest Metrology/Alignment services, workshop machining, Metalock cold repairs (metal stitching) as well and overhaul and retrofit work.
