This wealth of expertise means we do not just sell machines, we are able to collaborate with our customers to create solutions tailored to their unique needs.
For over 60 years, we have been supplying the finest machines, supported by the best people, trained to the highest standards, to deliver the right engineering solution for our customers.
Our applications engineering expertise and cutting edge machine tools often allow us to develop innovative production solutions, machining your parts faster and more efficiently than the competition.
Furthermore, our advanced machines not only reduce cycle times, set-up times and the need for secondary operations, they can also reduce other cost factors such as energy consumption and tool wear.
It all adds up to providing you with the lowest possible cost-per-part, increasing your competitiveness and profitability.
When it comes to after-sales support, we understand the importance of working with a machine tool supplier on whom you can thoroughly rely. If your machine is forced offline for any reason, you need to know that the problem can be resolved quickly and with minimum disruption to your business.
To that end, we operate a nationwide network of mobile Service Engineers, ensuring that we can be on your site within 24 hours. Find out more about our support service on the dedicated page.

George Kingsbury had just 120 days to sell 30 INDEX Cam Auto machines back in the mid 1940s. Here is where our story begins.
‘Engineering Excellence’ reflects who we are, what we stand for and the ambition we have as a company. It demonstrates the energy, the commitment and the constant drive to improve our offering, our services, our processes and our practices. It’s the passion behind what we do.
From our spacious and well equipped facilities in Gosport, Hampshire, we offer a nationwide service, providing manufacturers with innovative machining solutions and comprehensive support, now with an expanded portfolio that also includes grinding machines.
We have been privileged to work with many of the country’s most prestigious OEMs in all facets of industry, including the big household names. We also have a loyal and expanding customer base of sub-contractors and machine shops that rely on our knowledge and experience to give them the competitive edge they need.
We only work with the very best European manufacturers. Reliability is absolutely key for our customers and all the equipment supplied by Kingsbury is covered by a minimum 92% machine availability agreement. With the correct preventative maintenance regimes in place, we and our principals are happy to increase this figure to 96%.
