Our main income comes from manufacturing; designing well engineered motors & mechanisms and supplying them "on time, to spec" for a wide range of markets such as in cars, locks, medical appliances and tools. We have developed close relationships with our suppliers to support our customers who depend on us to deliver.

As a rapidly growing business, we are looking to expand our procurement team with a purchasing coordinator to work with our suppliers and coordinating the increasing volume of production that we push through.
