From lightened camshafts for historic open-wheeled racers to a 150kg mounting plate for a Sherman tank turret, Bicester-based Heritage Engineering is a one-stop shop for metal milling and turning jobs.
Its workshop is packed with machines that include an old Colchester Triumph 2000 lathe and a modern Doosan CNC machine.
The team of five has decades of experience that qualifies the firm to mix hands-on, old-school methods with high-tech kit to tackle complex jobs.
Heritage Engineering was formed five years ago, and 29-year-old workshop manager Billy Jones has been there from the start.
“A lot of our work is for vintage and classic cars,” says Billy. “We have never really had to do any advertising; it’s all just been word of mouth.”
Most jobs arrive with an oven-ready CAD drawing that can go straight to the machines; others require a digital model to be produced in-house.
