High Precision Machining

Development Engineering Services are a Made in Yorkshire Bronze Member

Providing High Quality, Subcontract Precision Machining for over 20 Years

We are based in Shipley, West Yorkshire, located in close proximity to the large northern cities of Leeds and Bradford with excellent transport links. Paul Stenton, the Managing Director of DES has worked for the business for over 20 years. Paul joined straight from school starting as a Machine Operator, working his way up to Operations Manager and overseeing the day to day running of the production facility.

In 2008 he became a Director and in 2011 Paul bought out the previous Managing Director to become the majority shareholder. In 2011 the company was operating with just 4 employees from an old cotton mill in Otley, West Yorkshire. However, Paul saw potential in the business and an opportunity to grow through re-investment and hard work with the support of fellow Director’s and a dedicated workforce.

Today, DES operates from a new and bigger location with 15 members of staff and 9 CNC machine centres operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Paul continues to be the main point of contact for all customer queries, from enquiry stage right through to delivery of the finished order, providing continuity to each customer.

We have worked with Development Engineering Services for over 7 years now and are delighted with the work carried out so far. Our company is a market-leader in the provision of wireless infrastructure sharing solutions and RF filter systems so all project work needs to be of the highest quality and delivered to tight schedules, which is what we get with Development Engineering Services. They are responsible for programming and manufacturing highly complex RF filter components, they also offer recommendations to reduce costs and lead time through integration with our design teams.
