R E Thompson

R E Thompson are a manufacturing and assembly company specialising in the machining of complex components. For over 70 years, we have provided a complete manufacturing solution from design to assembly.

Primarily, we are involved in aerospace and defence but are actively looking into new markets, such as the growing hydrogen energy and fuel cell sector. We have extensive experience working with precision parts to high tolerances and are looking to expand our manufacturing portfolio to encourage business growth.

We have recently invested in an OKUMA Multus U4000, allowing us to manufacture complex internal spur gears. Providing exceptional power skiving capabilities to extremely fine tolerances, all under one roof.

Our core values are ingrained in everything we do. We strive to innovate, drive ambition, develop customer relationships and build trust.

We believe investing in long-term partnerships establishes mutually beneficial relationships, encouraging business growth for all involved.
