About Us


Established in 1997 with a single Citizen Slidinghead lathe, we now operate 17 CNC lathes at our site in Ilkeston, Derbyshire.  Our strategy is to heavily invest in the latest modern high speed machinery. We are committed to investing and manufacturing in the UK and producing high quality parts for our clients.

We currently have around 30 employees on site at HPC Services Ltd and a further 50 at our sister company Hemlock Engineering Ltd. (www.hemlock.co.uk) We generally specialise in the high speed machining of non ferrous metals such as stainless steel, brass, aluminium and plastic though we do have the capability to machine any type of material.

Most of our machines are high performance multi-axis and have powered milling tooling  which enable us to machine all the features of a turned component in a single operation including all the milling features.
By continually investing in the fastest machine tools we can usually considerably beat cycle times and cost of many of our competitors. We have also significantly invested in Nakamura fixed head turning lathes to enable us to produce larger diameter components.

Stockholding is offered as standard to all clients.
We also have an adjoining assembly and test facility so we can supply sub-assemblies or completely finished products if required.

Through our sister company Hemlock Engineering Ltd (
www.hemlock.co.uk) we are able to offer CNC Milling and 5-axis CNC Milling services and high volume milling capability due to recent investments in conveyor systems and robotic automation.
