How to reach our factory

All manufacturing work is carried out at our air-conditioned factory very close to Farnborough Aerospace Centre.

It can be reached in about 45 minutes from London via either the A3 and A31 or by the M3. Both these routes offer very speedy and straightforward connections, while the M25 is just 14 miles from the factory. (A detailed map can be faxed to you).

The whole area is very much orientated towards the latest technological developments and we see ourselves as part of this general commitment to progress through scientific advances.

Our administration is fully computerised and we have the ability to send and receive files via computer, as well as having an enquiry system that can be accessed via the internet. Simply click the email button link below.
