At Tufcot we like to ensure we have the Machinery, Equipment, Facilities and Knowledge to ensure any / all our customer demands can be met.

To do this we have tried to ensure we purchase up to date modern machinery and equipment that matches the varied methods and machining operations required in modern manufacturing.

This ensures that all machining operations (Turning, Milling, Drilling, tapping, Grooving, Cutting etc) are done as efficiently, cost effectively and competitively as possible for our ever-growing list of customers.

We also understand that there are still some process’s requiring older more conventional methods – because of this whilst our machinery purchase program is ongoing we have maintained our extensive and comprehensive conventional and manual machine section.
