More than just machinery

There are many toolmaking and pressed metal companies out there, so what makes us different?

Decades of experience give us the leading edge – we have a combined 180 years toolmaking expertise – and a manufacturing facility packed full of modern machinery and technologies to help you achieve your goals.

Yet aside from this, we believe what makes us special is the unique way we work with our customers. And the way this happens is defined by you.

You choose how you want to work with us: give us a task to manufacture hundreds of thousands of parts without input from our team. Or work closely with us from the very outset: we can help you with your CAD designs, prototyping, development, project management, testing, right through to manufacture.

We work with you, not just for you; we’re proactive and passionate about helping you get it right first time. Our approach can be consultative or reactive – either way we’re here for you when you need us.

Further benefits of working with our team include:


Our focus on quality is inherent in all our technologies and processes. Read more about our quality standards.

Cost effective products

Work with us from the inception of your project and we can save you money by designing out any unnecessary costs. Our pricing is also cost effective at any stage of the manufacturing process.

Serviceable tooling

We manufacture your components with deep consideration, creating easily maintainable tools to minimise downtime when in use.  

Efficient production

Our production methods use the latest technologies, are highly efficient, reliable and consistent, and meet your output expectations every time.


Our cutting edge systems and equipment paired with our expertise enable us to smoothly manage the efficient production of the parts you need, without issues or downtime.


We’re a mid-sized family-run company with all the benefits you expect. We’re flexible, hardworking and diligent, and we support our customers with ever-changing requirements.


We offer an end-to-end process and you can follow your products closely through to manufacture, with a named contact throughout, providing you with all the operational details.

Technology is fantastic but with Cotswold Tool & Press you get much more than just machinery. We can consult closely with you on your project from beginning to end – or not at all. The choice is yours

“We have been working with Cotswold Tool and Press for many years and they are our default choice for the most technically challenging requests when it comes to new components. They are not just a manufacturing partner, but a development partner, working together with us from the earliest stages of the development process to ensure the end result meets all our requirements (which they always do). Lastly the level of communication is excellent and their detailed scheduling of financial and development milestones makes the project management side much easier, frequently receiving praise from our finance department.”
