Company History

Universal Tool & Production Company was founded in 1952 as a toolmaking company. It evolved into a production company in the early seventies and by the end of the seventies ceased commercial toolmaking. Since then the company has developed an excellent reputation in precision engineering, with clients in Oil and Gas, Aerospace and Nuclear, expanding to fill two manufacturing sites in Fareham, Hampshire. In 2017 the company moved to a large, purpose-built, sustainable building in Lee-on-Solent, with the capacity to service diverse industries that require high-precision heavy engineering.
