An introduction to MPM past and present

Combining traditional values of service with extensive experience and the latest technology

Early machining work at Markyate Precision MachiningYou could say Engineering is in our blood (the father of MPMs Directors having been a life-long engineer and established highly successful businesses in Hertfordshire and Hampshire).

Jonathan Bygate, Production Director honed his skills through a traditional engineering apprenticeship as did Tim Bygate, Managing Director who went on to gain an MSc Degree in Manufacturing Technology & Project Management at Cranfield University.

Together with their brother Richard, Finance Director they took on and continued the family business originally set up in Markyate, Hertfordshire in the 1950s.

The Company has a history of operating with major innovators in manufacturing. During the 1960s the Company were a key supplier of precision machined engine components for Rolls Royce RB2II engine (the first jet engine at 10’ diameter).

The brothers focus continues to be on providing outstanding quality in both product and service. Whilst traditional engineering skills are still at the heart of what we do; we are proud of our heritage and the capability of our highly skilled workforce, our original business has grown and evolved into a multi-skilled technology led operation serving a wide range of industries.

The latest CNC technology at Markyate Precision Machining Following a long business association, working together on major projects, MPM were delighted when, in 2008, the opportunity arose to fully amalgamate the skills and experiences of the Datumbase organisation, specialists in large surface grinding, into the Company.

We are committed to continuous improvement of service delivery methods and technological advancements in engineering. This is demonstrated by our recent expansion of new plant (see plant list) and relocation into a brand new purpose built production facility.

We continue in the tradition of working with major corporations operating at the leading edge of technological advancement such as Optical Fibre Submarine Networks, providing key components in the laying of Fibre Optic Cabling across the ocean beds.
