The company was registered in 1982 by Don Newport, the company expanded very quickly from the beginning and we now employ 21 people, many of which have served with us for over ten years.


Since opening in 1982 DRN has specialised in the manufacture of components up to 65mm in diameter, this includes turning, milling, drilling, tapping, heat treatment and plating. Our customers are manufacturers of technical instruments requiring reliable quality and delivery and at a competitive cost.

In 1997 we moved to our new factory which then gave us the floor area to expand the number of CNC lathes and Vertical Machining Centres, which today total eighteen machine tools, we have always re-invested in new plant on a regular basis. Our maximum bar capacity is 65mm diameter and our maximum chucking capacity is 178mm diameter. We have 14 CNC’s of various types, many with driven tooling and sub-spindle which are all different and each is ideal for different types of components.

Currently we are increasing capacity due to more machines and more efficient machines and have plenty of scope for taking on more Customers, also it is the company policy to expand our capacity in line with the customer demand placed upon us. Therefore we are always ready to consider purchasing new machines.
