About Us

"Engineering Solutions, Precision Machining and Value"

The company was originally ADR Engineering, a general subcontract machining business, set up by the founding co directors Alan Warren and David Jones in 1982. Then, in 2002 they acquired Hillside Precision Engineering, another subcontract precision engineering business and formed Hillside ADR Ltd.

Prior to its acquisition, Hillside Precision Engineering's key area of engineering expertise was primarily in food extruder die design and the precision machining of parts such as: extrusion dies, die plates, feed screws and extruder sleeves. These machined parts were supplied ex stock to customers using one of the established makes of extruders used in the snack food industry: Maddox, Lalesse, Manley, Laytool, Planet and other extruder manufacturers.

Today, from its 5,000 sq. ft production facility in Moulton Park, Northampton, with its modern CNC lathes and multi axis machining centres, Hillside ADR Ltd. manufactures to ISO 9001 and supplies many different types of metal and plastic turned and milled parts. They machine parts for a wide variety of markets and applications including: food processing and packaging; production robots, conveyors & assembly lines; scientific & laboratory equipment; pharmaceutical equipment; pneumatic equipment; specialty vehicles and electrical & electronic equipment.

If you are an OEM or 1st tier supplier looking for a traditional, reliable, quality focused sub contract engineering company which specializes in smaller batch size precision machining of metal and plastic components to your specified tolerances, then Hillside ADR Ltd. is the company for you.
