    Forthcoming NAA Event: Celebrating 50 years at Mini Gears, 28 April 2016, Stockport

    Start date: 28/04/2016
    Cost: Free to Members, register via Eventbrite Link

    Join us for our next networking visit to Mini Gears and find out how the company has grown over the last 20 years. As winners of the Special Recognition Award for Logistics at last year’s NAA Awards ceremony, the company has a great story to tell and is willing to share its experiences with you…

    Mini Gears is a family-owned sub-contract engineering company based in Stockport, near Manchester, supplying to a wide range of industries on a global basis. Mini Gears has over 100 machines and 80 staff dedicated to machining customers’ components.

    Traditionally a specialist gear manufacturing company, it has expanded its machining capabilities to diversify into new high end markets, and now, in addition to commercial gears and racks, it manufactures many types of high precision machined components and high quality gears. It also has an overseas buying office for larger volume work that cannot be economically manufactured in the UK.

    Over the years the gear cutting capacity increased from being ‘mini’ to a size of 600mm diameter. The company became wholly-owned by the Darwent family in 1993 and turnover was then just over £1 million. It is now fast approaching a £10 million turnover company, has outgrown and moved premises twice, and is now located in its 35,000 sq. ft. facility in Stockport.
