Leading the way

Manufacturing at Axminster Tools has recently undergone significant investment, meaning we can design, develop and manufacture more products in-house than ever before. The journey to producing our own products started with just a few engineering machines. Now we run a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility onsite at the company HQ in Axminster, Devon. In 2023 Axminster Tools won The Kings Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category for the development and manufacture of our own brand UJK Parf Mk II Guide System.
