A MACHINE tool manufacturer says its ‘first-class’ workforce has helped it to win this award.
Brighouse-based Asquith Butler, which works with such prestigious names as Rolls Royce, JCB and BAE Systems, traces its roots back more than 140 years and has its eyes fixed firmly on the future.
The company supplies bespoke “state of the art” multi-axis machines to meet the ever-increasing demands of modern manufacturing requirements.
Operating from modern, purpose-built assembly and test facilities at Brookfoot, it uses the very latest computer-aided design and analysis software to provide complete design solutions.
It also specialises in engineered projects manufactured to exacting standards for customers in the aerospace, automotive and general engineering sectors in the UK, Europe and across the globe.
Managing director Paul Hinchliffe said: “We have won this award in the face of great competition.
“We have been around since 1865 and really tried to develop into niche markets because we cannot continue with volume production so we work closely with our clients.
“We wouldn’t be here without the strong calibre of engineers that we have. They are really first class.”
