“Ensuring the highest standards using the most efficient and effective machining methods”

It is the wide range of machines, highly skilled workforce, and other precision engineering capabilities that allow Hanbury-Autogil to meet all the major requirements customers have– from raw material supply to the finished, machined, heat-treated and plated components.

The designated Inspection area allows Hanbury-Autogil’s team of inspectors to thoroughly examine the machined parts to ensure complete compliance with customers’ requirements. Hanbury-Autogil is capable of the production of a one-off prototype to small-medium batch work.

Some of the capabilities include:

  • CNC Turning
  • CNC Milling
  • Surface Grinding
  • Cylindrical Grinding
  • Welding
  • Tool Room Machining


It has been due to the sole focus on providing correct solutions consistently that results in the ongoing growth of trust between the Company and its customers. This has resulted in Hanbury-Autogil needing to now run a Two-Shift Workday. The precision engineering Machine Shop now operates almost 24 hours a day with an array of clients locally in Devon and across the United Kingdom.

Their ability to run a Two-Shift workday and the range of machinery allows the company to accommodate and face demanding delivery challenges experienced by customers, consistently.

The Philosophy of Excellence has been recognised across the range of customers around the world which has rapidly contributed to advancements in demand through recommendations.


In today’s fast-moving market, the cost of discrepancies is high. Therefore, the emphasis is also highly put on consistency. The unchanging high quality of machined parts ensures current customers have confidence in the Company’s proficiency.
