Metal Finishing for the Engineering Industry

The market size of the precision engineering industry in the UK is estimated to be £6.8bn [1] making it a relatively small but significant part of the economy. Metal finishing is a crucial process for the sector as most manufactured, machined or cast components will need further treatment to improve their performance, durability, and appearance. Overall, metal finishing plays a vital role in ensuring the quality and longevity of metal parts for the engineering industry.
