We have 4 simple tenets that guide us as a client focused business…. 

  1. Quality

Our commitment to ISO 9001 and our own 30-point pre-delivery check ensure that quality is inherent in every tool we make.

  1. Accuracy

Laser calibration of our milling machines allows us to work with great accuracy to very fine tolerances down to less than 10 microns. We believe in getting it right first time.

  1. Lead Time

Continuous investment in industry leading CAD CAM software and state of the art hardware dramatically cuts client lead times.

  1. Client Support

From concept and design, to completion and throughout the lifetime of the tool, we are there to guide, support and advise our clients at every stage.

Working with these principles helps provide our clients with the highest quality tools at great value for money with total support as may be seen here from client testimonials.

KA Group


A Brief History

KA Tooling was formed in 2004 when friends and colleagues, Kien Chung (far right) and Alex Hill, (centre) shook hands and agreed to work together to produce plastic injection mould tools to the highest possible standards.

Starting with just two machine centres they quickly gained a reputation for good value, high quality tools and as the business grew they gradually gained new clients and took on new employees.


After 10 years in the centre of Leicester and with a solid customer base it was time to expand and move to new, larger premises.

The new fully equipped factory now has nine machine centres together with a Mitsubishi spark eroder in a 6,500 square foot tool room, whilst 6 iMacs run Vero Visi 3D Modelling software in the CAD CAM office is home to 3 iMacs and the first floor Design and Admin Office

We are now just 5 minutes from junction 22 of the M1 and 15 minutes from junction 13 of the M42, ideally placed for quick and easy motorway access to all parts of the UK
