5-axis cnc milled and coated part

Manufacturing thousands of high precision components for our clients every year.


CNC Fixed Head Facility

Established in 1986 as a small jobbing shop, we have evolved and grown over the subsequent years, into a specialist CNC milling company through continual and substantial investment in the latest generation of high-speed machinery.  Our commitment to investing and manufacturing within the UK is matched by our commitment to producing the highest quality components at the lowest possible price for our diverse, worldwide client base.  Central to the UK, we have around 50 members of staff at Hemlock and a further 30 at our sister company HPC Services Ltd (CNC turning) with both companies specialising in the high-speed machining of almost any material with Hemlock focusing on aluminium, non-ferrous metal or plastics.
