Demand For Specialist Tooling Services Continues Throughout The Pandemic

Continued demand for our specialist tooling services has enabled PJ Tooling to remain fully operational throughout the COVID pandemic, as a result, we have continued to experience a healthy increase in the range of bespoke tooling requests

West Arrange Tooling

We’re now in our second period of national restrictions and there is no doubt that  2020 has been a challenging year on so many different levels. We are well aware that the pandemic has negatively affected many global and national businesses, including engineering. Luckily for us, our key strength during this period has been our diverse capability and skills, which are more in line with a subcontract operation, rather than the traditional Round Shank cutting tool specialist.

Our core activity has consisted of Step Drills, Reamers, SAE tools and Milling Cutters, other areas of demand include Wear parts, Jaw Inserts, prototype engine components and Pastry Scoring Cutters. Form tools for intricate Pharmaceutical Moulds have also been a key part of production this year, plus work associated with Rail, Marine, Aftermarket Brakes & Wind Turbines.

Firms Continue to Press Ahead With New Projects

We have found that suppressed demand in some areas has been offset by many firms pressing ahead with new projects or expansion, despite economic challenges and uncertainty.

Our strength as a small business enables us to respond quickly to customer enquiries and new project requests. For example, we had a recent enquiry for new Profile Milling tools, which required various applications totalling 108 Pieces in Solid Carbide for Medical Industry use. This was a Friday afternoon enquiry, we provided the quote the same day, got it drawn up on CAD, and the prioritised items were already in production the following Monday!
