advanced tooling supply

Hockley Pattern and Tool Company Ltd, of Halesowen, specialises in the design and manufacture of tooling for composite and metallic parts for the aerospace, automotive, defence and nuclear sectors.

Founded in 1979, its prestigious clients include BAE Systems, Jaguar Land Rover, Rolls-Royce, GKN and McLaren.

The company has more than 55 employees at two sites and took on four apprentices at its Lodgefield Road premises at the end of September, thanks to the WMCA’s apprenticeship levy transfer fund, which is paying for their training in full. They are currently learning how to operate computer numerical control (CNC) machines and manual machines used in patternmaking.
