The following are our latest new members!
- Menear Engineering Menear Engineering is a small family run business established over 35 years ago.
We produce quality mould tools, press tools, diecast tools and jigs & fixtures for a variety of customers.We are specialist in CNC Milling Precision Machinery & also manufacture precision machined parts for all types of industries using a whole range of toolroom machinery and inspection equipment.
Our mould tools are manufactured using 2½ D CNC Milling, Spark Erosion, Surface Grinding, Turning, Conventional Milling, Bench Fitting and Polishing.
- Armstrong Optical Ltd
Armstrong Optical Ltd was founded in 1997 with the remit of introducing the FISBA OPTIK phase shifting interferometry systems to the UK with complementary optical metrology products from TRIOPTICS and interferometry accessories.
The interferometer business of FISBA OPTIK was subsequently purchased by TRIOPTICS who now supply a comprehensive range of optical test equipment for metrology and production and are a key partner for us.
Armstrong Optical now specialise in a number of areas within advanced engineering, including a range of optical metrology solutions and electro-optics sub assemblies.
Our laser metrology instrumentation enables sub nm distance and high accuracy angle measurement for such apparatus as machine-tool beds; non-contact shape/thickness measurement of glass containers on production lines; non-contact vibration analysis – from the macro- right down to the micro-scale as well as bespoke automation of measurement requirements.
Our electro-optics sub assemblies from our partners SwissOptic are used throughout the world.
- Fenton Precision Engineering Ltd
Our tool making facility is fully equipped with EDM sparkers and wire erosion machinery coupled with CNC high speed milling centres (2 new in
2014), grinders, lathes and milling stations. We can manage multiple tooling suites in house and fully optimise each tool on our moulding presses.
Metrology is also kept in house with our CMM measuring machine, shadow graph and standard measuring equipment. ISIR’s and PPAP documentation is also standard procedure at Fenton.
Injection mould tools include single to high cavitation, P20 tool steel, H13 hardened and aluminium. Our expertise is also within insert and over moulding, composite/multi material, stack tools and 2K (twin shot). Hot runner systems, multi or single drop are offered either with our preferred supplier or to your own specification. We also have extensive experience with manufacturing auto-unscrewing tools being single or multi impression.
Mould tooling for processing all grades of polymers ranging from PP to PPS and PEEK – each project is offered with on-site consultation to suite each customers specific tooling and product needs.
Modular tooling concepts are offered where Fenton own the tooling bolster sets and the customer funds the core and cavities set thus keeping investment to a minimum.
Our CEO and founder Mr Philip Schofield established Fitsco Industries Ltd in 1990 with just a single ‘port-a-cabin’ office and just a few shelves of stock. His aim was to become the leading independent supplier of high performance threaded inserts for use in plastics, wood and sheet metal applications.
In 1991 the offices moved to Bidford-on-Avon and in 2000 a manufacturing facility was acquired in Stourport-On-Severn
During 2001 we introduced our own ‘branded’ range of threaded inserts, namely the “Multifit”, “Heatfit”, “Pressfit”, “Screwfit”, “Mouldfit” and “Woodfit” ranges.
In October 2004 the company expanded its manufacturing capacity and relocated both original sites to a single facility in Bridgnorth, Shropshire.
In 2008, a new product range, “Rotofit” (inserts for the rotomoulding industry) was added to the other six current product brands and in 2009, we introduced another new range, “PlasFit” – Thread Forming Screws for thermoplastic mouldings, commonly known as PT Screws.
In 2014 we moved into machining Marine Stainless steel inserts. These inserts are more suitable for use in marine environments as the material is less prone to salt corrosion.
We currently manufacture over 750,000 inserts per month in our Bridgnorth premises and due to a recent increase in a worldwide demand for our products

- Bowyer Engineering
Bowyer Engineering Limited was founded in Clerkenwell (London) on St Davids Day 1946 when the company initially worked to provide tooling and general equipment for the Telecommunications Industry.
In 1969 Bowyer Engineering, by now a specialising in batch machining work, relocated to new purpose built factory in Andover. The company continued to evolve by establishing relationships with several OEM’s who required solutions that required Special Purpose Machine development. These solutions have included assembly and welding fixtures and finally led to working with robotic welding integration solution providers.
Bowyer Engineering has enjoyed and excellent working relationship with Rolls-Royce Aero engines for 50 years, they remain one of the company’s largest customers.
Bowyer Engineering continue to supply batch work machining solutions from the recently expanded 1,100 sq mtr machine shop. We specialise in the machining of a diverse range of alloys that includes Super Duplex, High Temperature Stainless Steel, Nimonic, Inconel, High Tensile Aluminium and High Tensile structural Steel.
