Our Tool Room

After 10 years in the heart of Leicester, we relocated to Coalville, Leicestershire in 2014. Our new tool room allows quick and easy access to the M1, the A50 and the A46. We are ideally placed to serve our customers throughout the UK.

Our new tool room and CAD CAM office covers 6,500 sq.ft. on the ground floor. The 1st floor includes admin and directors offices. There is also a meeting room and a viewing area where customers are invited to discuss their requirements in person.

State of the art milling machines, CAD software and Apple Macintosh computers reflects a £1M investment in the business. Further investment in the training and development of our team, together with our recent ISO 9001:2015 accreditation means we are well placed to meet the needs of our clients.

We can confidently say that when quality, accuracy, lead time and client support are considered, K A Tooling represents excellent value for money every time!
