Our close relationship with two other UK manufacturers allows us to supply special indexable insert tools and special circular cutters and form tools in tungsten carbide and hss quickly at competitive prices.

Back end tooling : arbors, chucks collets etc are supplied on short delivery times.

In the early 1990s agreement was reached to distribute Castrol lubricants and greases. This has extended to the supply of Castrol, SAR and Optimum (Monroe) oils. We also sell ancillary products such as spill control absorbent granules, socks and mats. Other brands including Mobil, Shell, Kluber and Fuchs can be provided.

 Over 25 years of experience enables us to provide specialised advice and support related to optimal coolant use, including related health and safety issues. A regular coolant monitoring and recording service is offered, including, for example, refractometer and pH readings.

The purchase of Hope Valley Tool Steels in 2009 enables us to offer a wide variety of tool steels ; D.2, D.3, D.6, A.2, 01, P20 (2711/2712), EN30B (2767), H13 and many more. A large stock of Silver Steel and Ground Flat Stock (Gauge Plate) manufactured in the UK is held here in Stockport. Non standard GFS, e.g. longer than 1 metre, can be supplied - usually in less than 2 weeks.

Involvement in the supply of tool steels has gradually led us to be able to also supply stainless, spring and engineering steels along with non ferrous metals.

Please ask for a quote for any engineering/manufacturing products however tenuously related to the industry - 88 years of experience have given us an unrivalled product knowlege, expertise and range of industry contacts and sources.
