Company History

Oxton Engineering was founded in 1977 and has been satisfying the precision machining and engineering needs of its customers for over thirty years. The company has seen many changes and improvements during its three decades in the industry.

In 1995 Oxton Engineering achieved its first quality accreditation, BS5750; this project started the culture of continuous improvement at Oxton. We currently hold ISO9001:2008 accreditation in addition to a number of customer accreditations.

The company’s vision underwent a major change in 2007, when a Management buyout saw current directors Phil McWilliam and Colin Rooke take over at Oxton. Prior to the buyout, Phil and Colin had almost 40 years experience at the company between them, in addition to significant experience they had in other companies. Their in-depth knowledge, coupled with their insight into World Class business practices meant they were able to modernise the company. This modernisation led to the company gaining work from a number of blue chip companies, whilst also increasing the volume of work from its existing customers. These changes were extremely successful for the company and led to the doubling of its turnover.

A major milestone for Oxton’s history was achieved in 2008, when the new ISO 14644-1 Class 7 Clean Room was opened, offering Aqueous Ultrasonic Cleaning facilities and Clean Assembly for the first time in its history.

Since its formation, Oxton have continued to expand its production services and in 2012 moved to new, larger premises on Cleveland Street, Birkenhead in December. The move to the new 13500 sq ft building involved significant investment; in the new building, new machinery, and the formation of a new dedicated bonded store facility.

The move to the new premises was undertaken in tandem with significant updates to the processes and systems already being implemented. This was aided by the company’s participation in the Knowledge Exchange scheme at the University of Liverpool. These changes to the physical factory, the planning systems and the working processes, have ensured that Oxton remains a forward facing, major competitor in the Precision engineering industry.

We now provide an impressive range of parts and assemblies, made by ourselves and our trusted sub-contractors, for some of the largest and leading companies in the scientific, pharmaceutical and automotive industries.
