About Us

As you read this, it is quite likely that the car you drive or the packaged food and drink you have consumed today has some small part of our expertise associated with it.

Founded in 1961 by the late John Tree MBE, we are the largest, privately-owned design and build toolmaking company in Europe.

Now led by Gareth Jenkins, who started his career in the metal packaging industry, our senior management team is made up of professionals from internal promotions and external appointments, each bringing with them a specialist technical discipline. 

Our current facility in Llantrisant, South Wales, was opened in 2006 and is a model of excellence in a wide range of technical disciplines, housing the very latest technology for the design and manufacture of high precision tooling.

We have trained engineers at all levels since the very beginning and our apprenticeship scheme has become the benchmark for many companies in the industry, representing the best workplace vocational training to degree level. Many of our current employees joined us as apprentices and have worked their way up through the company, some now forming part of the senior management team. 

If you are looking for a total toolmaking service from concept to component, we can offer you a first class service based on highly skilled people, leading edge technology, innovation and confidentiality.
