Delivering Excellence:

Manufacturing complex tooling requires exceptional Quality and Inspection process control and we have developed a solid reputation in the composites market for manufacturing world-class tooling solutions.

Regularly we are requested to produce an initial prove-out component from our completed tooling as part of the customer acceptance/buy off process. Once the component inspection has been validated by the customer, the entire suite is often delivered locally before eventual shipment elsewhere in UK, Europe, North America or to an LCC (low cost country) for long-term volume manufacturing.

At Pentaxia we are proud of our capabilities and would be happy to share our expertise. If you would like to discuss future projects, please get in touch as we aim to exceed your expectations in all aspects of our manufacturing approach.
