Established as a private company in 1986 PDS has steadily invested and extended its capabilities as a direct response to our customers specific requirements.  Our mission is to continue to provide value, reliability and quality sub-contract sheet metal engineering to the highest standard.

To support this, in-house machining (CNC and conventional milling and turning) and finishing (high quality powder coating, wet spraying and stove enamelling) adds to our flexibility to enable your delivery schedules to be under our control and not governed by other suppliers or contractors.

Our engineering facilities include prototype and production CNC sheet metal fabrications, Laser cutting, CNC Milling and all welding processes MIG/TIG (alloy, mild steel and stainless steel).

New product can be assessed during or after development to enable you to have the most cost effective method of manufacture. With today's technology information can be sent and assessed with speed, reducing overheads and enabling lower manufacturing costs to you and subsequently to your customer.

Since 2008 PDS have invested significantly in upgrading our machinery, personnel and work ethic which has in turn increased our customer base and capacity substantially. With the purchase of our Orion Model 3015 Laser Cutting Machine in December 2008, the AMADA HFE MK 11 80/25 8 Axis Press Brake in March 2011, an Ajax MCV450 Vertical CNC Machining centre in September 2011 plus an additional PEMserter Series 4L in October 2011 the company has moved further forward and is able to offer even greater technical ability and expertise. We don't sit still!

The company's business processes, estimating through to invoicing, are managed using MIETrak software. Designed for sheet metal companies, MIETrak has proven to be a major asset within our company assisting in enabling us to meet the requirements for our ISO 9001:2008 accreditation.

FabriWIN software is used for the programming of our CNC Punch Press and Laser Cutting machine, and we have also recently invested in OneCNC software to support our machine shop, this enables us to download customer drawings directly into our machines resulting in the reliable repeatability and accuracy desired.
