Abbey Tool and Gauge is a privately-owned company established in 1970 by engineer Graham Reid. Now in its second generation, the company is managed by sons Iain and Alistair. All manufacturing takes place in their purpose-built 60,000 ft production facility in Kelso within the heart of the Scottish Borders.
Since the installation of its first CNC Machine tool in 1979 the Company has continued to invest in the latest technology. A spend of £5.5 million in the last five years has enabled the business to diversify to one hit machining using 5 axis to 9 axis machine tools increasing competitiveness and quality.
The company has also expanded its range allowing it to machine up to 1m diameter x 3m long. This is complimented by the company’s ongoing investment in training and the evaluation of skills required for a modern day manufacturing facility.
