Quality has been described as an on-going process of building and sustaining relationships by assessing, anticipating and fulfilling stated and or implied needs.

Never has this definition been more appropriate than when applied to Aldershot based FT Gearing Systems Ltd. In addition to establishing long-term relationships with its customers, the renowned manufacturer of gear technology and high-precision components also enjoys enduring associations with a small number of carefully chosen machine tool suppliers.

Double in Size!

In the last eight years, Cumbernauld-based contract machining specialist Cowie Engineering has doubled annual turnover, increased headcount from 13 to 24 and acquired an adjacent factory unit of equal size to the original, raising the total floor area to 9,500 sq ft. During that time, the number of vertical machining centres (VMCs) on the shop floor, all of which are from Hurco, has also doubled to 10. Additionally, a Hurco 10-inch chuck CNC lathe has been on-site since 2011.
