Astec was established in 1998 to provide a pro-active supply of micro and miniature precision turned parts for high specification industries. We have since grown to become leaders in our field, and now boast one of the largest and most advanced sliding head capabilities in the UK.
Our niche is specialising in demanding materials and intricate designs from 0.2mm to 32mm diameter. All of our parts are manufactured in accordance with customer and aerospace specifications. We have invested in the latest CNC technology to allow us to manufacture from materials as diverse as nickel alloys, chrome alloys, copper alloys, stainless steels and high chrome content steels.
From our purpose built, 8,500 square foot factory in Cumbria, our machine shop operates 24/7, with the last calendar year seeing more than 4,000,000 parts despatched through nearly 4,000 sales orders. Tooling design and machined programming is performed in-house by our skilled and knowledgeable team, enabling us to maintain the highest levels of quality. We also offer creative supply solutions including VMI, Kanban and consignment stock to our customers.
In July 2015, Astec secured the backing of Nevis Capital LLP, one of the UK’s leading investors in the SME market. With a portfolio of companies in the engineering and industrial sectors, Nevis focusses on backing quality companies with a strong market position and management team with the aim of supporting them to grow and develop.
