During the 1970s his sons, Robert and John took over the day to day running of the business and continued it’s development into one of Europe’s leading suppliers of precision tooling for printing the packaging of food and pharmaceuticals as well as the decorative printing of cosmetics pencils, compacts and tubes. During the 1980s the company also supplied silicone rubber dies, metal type and wordblocks, engraved brass and steel dies/cliches, tools for printing plastic bottles and steel cutting dies for paper and plastics to discerning customers worldwide.

Since Robert’s retirement in 2000, John continued to expand the company further developing new and innovative products for the security printing industry, cosmetics packaging market and plastics decoration.

Since taking over another long established Leicester firm in 2005 we have also supplied specialist heading punches, second operation marking stamps and other precision engineered components for the aerospace fastener market. Through continued innovation, research and development we are now able to offer many light engineering parts, rotary marking dies and wheels, jigs and holding fixtures.

The highly skilled production team are specialists in precision engineering and combine the finest traditions of British craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technology in pursuit of excellence and innovation. As we make many of our own components and carry out our procedures in-house, we have a high degree of production flexibility.

The company has recently collaborated with several prestigious academic institutions for engineering innovation and excellence to ensure that we are always at the forefront of manufacturing processes

The recent acquisition of PBE Marking Systems Limited means that our group can now cover all customer needs from machines to foil to dies, all supplied with the time-honoured expertise and skills provided by the staff in both companies.
