MP Engineering was founded in 1981 by Mick Poole as a small tooling business located in Wigston, Leicestershire. The business focus in the early days was to deliver quality products in a short lead-time, this philosophy around agility, fast make and the core skills associated with this remain in place today.
Since those early days’ MP Engineering have grown significantly, currently employing 40 people in a state of the art 16,000 square foot manufacturing facility based in Hinckley in the heart of the midlands and remain a privately-owned business still managed by the Poole family.
The business has evolved from a tooling business in to the manufacture of high precision formula 1 components for several of the leading teams, where much of our cutting-edge technology and innovation has been developed and honed.
In recent years and through our ability to create innovative ways of manufacturing parts, this has helped open new opportunities in the Aerospace supply chain, which is an area we are very excited about and something we are optimistic can grow in the coming years.
As a business we are continually striving to improve taking great pride in our apprenticeship scheme, the quality of the engineers we are developing, and the high employee retention rate of our dedicated and skilled staff.
We remain a very customer focused business, continually investing in new machine tools with approved planning permission to extend the facility, which we envisage will be required in the next few years in line with our strategy to grow our aerospace along side our formula one business.
