A Brief History Of MNB Precision
Established in a Midlands garage, MNB Precision begin life way back in 1980. Starting out as a small family enterprise, we initially focused on general engineering work with nothing but a couple of machines in a council house garage. Early success meant we quickly grew, and this allowed us to grow into larger facilities in Coventry and we started to take on significant work throughout the whole of the UK. Realising the need to stick to our core principals of general engineering, we also appreciated the importance of diversifying into other industries such as the oil and gas markets.
