Metaltech-Logo-rgbMetaltech was formed in 1973 in Chard, Somerset.

Total manufacturing has been the ethos of Metaltech Precision Ltd as the extensive plant list illustrates. Turning, milling, grinding, fabricating, welding, painting, assembly and testing are all used to back up this service.

  • A 6’s project has led to massive investment. A cellular/ lean manufacturing environment, factory floor air conditioning, solar panels (soon to be providing 25% of our power consumption), Biomass heating system, motion sensor lighting have all been implemented.
  • Over 20,000 hrs of both turning and milling capacity available per month.
