Uncategorized

A.E. Oscroft have over 60 years experience in the supply of quality metal pressings, assemblies and prototype projects in a wide range of materials and volumes across a number of industries.  They offer a full service from initial concept prototypes, tool design and manufacture, and ultimately, to finished component production in line with ISO9001/2000, TS 16949 and ISO 14001 accreditations.

Following consistent growth over the last 5 years, AEO have recently announced the purchase of their new 53,000 sq ft production facility.  The Brownfield site based less than ½ mile away from their current 18,000 sq ft premises in Redditch, will be fully operational by the end of April.

The new premises will provide a significant increase in capacity, and together with the opportunity to refocus Lean Manufacturing and Continuous Improvement activities throughout the business, both current and new customers can be easily catered for.

Prior to the strategic purchase of the new premises; AEO have invested in additional managerial structure and services to ensure correct implementation of the plan.  The aim is to involve current and prospective clients in the development of additional plant requirements.

AEO have already implemented a state of the art measurement facility and internal tool room/ repairs shop, increased lifting capacity and improved loading / unloading facilities at the new site.

Commenting on the benefits of the new site, Chris Oscroft, Managing Director said, “The increased capacity of our new premises enables us to consult our customers on the best ways to meet their future requirements, in order that we can align our strategies and our plant and facility to continue meeting their demands.  We are already experiencing a large surge in the number of enquiries and as a result are increasing our capacity for tooling within the UK”.
