The UK market for precision engineered products is thriving. This is a far cry from the latter part of the 20th Century, when competition from emerging markets such as China led to an overall decline in British manufacturing.

Nowadays, an increasingly large number of companies are realising the benefits of buying British and reshoring their supply chains back to the UK. This in turn has led to an upswing in the number of manufacturers offering precision engineered products – meaning customers are now spoiled for choice when deciding who they want to work with. 

Finding the right precision engineering supplier is essential, as it’s important that the components you are purchasing are of the highest quality and that you feel you can rely upon the manufacturer at every stage of the process. There are a number of ways to judge the quality of the CNC milling or CNC turning services you receive, but one that is often not mentioned is experience. 

While we’re not saying that manufacturers who have only been in business for a couple of years will automatically deliver poor workmanship, there are several undeniable benefits that purchasing precision engineered products from an experienced supplier will bring.

Knowledge of the Industry

Working with a precision engineering company that has lived and breathed the industry for decades ensures that you can benefit from a wealth of knowledge. Given that many clients are not 100% sure of their requirements when they approach a manufacturer, choosing a supplier that has seen and done it all is extremely useful.

No two precision engineering projects are the same, meaning there is never a one-size-fits-all solution. An experienced provider of precision engineering products will therefore be able to thoroughly analyse the client’s situation and recommend the best course of action for them – something that can save a lot of time and money. 

A company that has been in business for a large number of years will also keep themselves up to date with the latest best practices, to ensure that they remain competitive at all times. This gives you the perfect combination of knowledge, experience and technical ability that will provide you with much-needed peace of mind that you are dealing with a company that can meet your requirements first time, every time. 

Strong Reputation

A precision engineering company that has been in business for a large number of years, if not decades, will have no doubt garnered themselves a strong reputation for the quality of their services. This is something that is extremely important.

When ordering precision engineered products, trust is paramount. The components you order will likely be subjected to harsh environments and conditions, so it is essential that they are robust and able to stand the test of time. 

Knowing that you are dealing with a provider that already has a strong reputation for reliability and the quality of their products will make the entire decision making process a lot more straightforward and should immediately make you feel confident that you will be working with someone who can effortlessly satisfy your requirements. This type of reputation will only come as the result of experience. 

Personalised Service

fingerprint to signify uniqueness

For a business to have thrived in such a competitive industry like precision engineering for decades, it is clear that they must be offering a superior level of service. If they weren’t, they would soon be falling behind.

As well as building an unrivalled level of knowledge about the industry, the precision engineering company will also have pinpointed exactly what a client needs when they ask for CNC milling or CNC turning services. This allows the manufacturer to offer a holistic and tailor-made service that is specifically geared towards helping each and every client with their individual requirements. 

Not only that, but an experienced precision engineering company will also be sure to create a strong working relationship with their clients, which ultimately will result in a sense of trust in the manufacturer. This relationship will include offering valuable support during the initial consultation and then throughout the precision engineering process. 


medal to represent accreditations

A precision engineering company that has been in business for a large number of years is also likely to have attracted the attention of important industry bodies. As such, the manufacturer should have acquired several key accreditations for their quality of work and business practices. 

These industry figures will not just lend their name to any manufacturer, and instead will likely judge the engineering company against a wide range of essential criteria to ensure they are endorsing a provider that can be trusted. Given that the element of trust is paramount, knowing that you are dealing with a company that has been given the approval of important industry bodies will be extremely important when choosing which provider to work with.
