Our Companies


Lodent Precision was established in 1978, and we have continually invested in both the latest technologies in manufacturing and personnel development. As a company we have developed into one of the leading toolmaking companies in the country servicing the Automotive and Commercial Industries.

We have gained a wealth of knowledge over many years and are experienced in working with a range of materials including High Strength Steel, Aluminium alloys, Tools, Steels, Nickel, Titanium, Plastics and Composites. With a wide range of machining centres utilising the latest cad/cam software and cutting tool technology we are able to support and manufacture a wide range of products up to 4m x 2m in size and 20 tons in weight.



We started business back in 2005.  All these years we worked hard to support our customers in the hydraulics, valving and precision engineering industries.  Some of them grew to became substantial enterprises, some of them were acquired by international groups.  We are based in West Midlands, in the Midlands Engine which is the heartbeat of Britain’s economy. We live and breathe engineering.  In 2018 the ownership of the company has been successfully transitioned to a younger generation.  We are now building a new future by expanding and innovating.  Our ultimate goal is for our employees to be proud of our products and services and our customers – to recommend us to others.
