Founded in 1984 by Christopher Pemberton, Pemberton Engineering has been manufacturing press tools, jigs and fixtures for over 35 years. The company started by manufacturing small press tools for the lock industry, which was still flourishing in the Black Country. As this industry began to decline in the 1990’s Pemberton began manufacturing small tools for the automotive sector.
The company soon found itself manufacturing larger tools for lorry and tractor components, and over the past 10 years Pemberton has been manufacturing tools for Tier One automotive suppliers. The size and complexity of the tooling it supplies today has grown far beyond its early days with more complex progression tooling becoming the new norm.
The company has invested heavily over the past decade in new CNC Machinery, Wire Eroders and CMM (coordinate measuring machine) equipment. With the next generation of the Pemberton family taking over the running of the company, the future is bright and full of new opportunities. In 2018 the company purchased its neighbouring industrial unit to double its production facility and has undertaken the process of gaining AS9100 accreditation for the aerospace industry.
