To be able to design and manufacture world-class commercial vehicle steering systems takes many years of experience and industry knowledge. To become a market leader in the field means that that experience and knowledge has been applied to produce world-class steering solutions that blue-chip commercial vehicle manufacturers rely on.
It takes a special company to remain at the top of their field. One that invests in the future of the industry, both in technology and the training of the next generation of engineers.
Here at Pailton Engineering, we have been designing commercial vehicle steering systems for almost a quarter of a century and our customer base includes some of the best known commercial vehicle brands from around the world. We have experience in the design and manufacture of steering systems for every type of commercial vehicle available including specialist utility, construction, transport (buses and coaches), emergency services and military.
As specialists in the industry, there is nothing that our highly-skilled engineers don’t know about steering systems and components for the commercial vehicle market.
A complete service with guaranteed quality
We are able to provide a complete service for our customers which includes design, prototyping, product development, engineering and testing. All of these services are carried out following stringent quality control procedures approved to BS EN ISO 9001:2008.
We believe in offering our customers products and services that exceed their expectations and this has been achieved by investment in key areas:
- Purpose-built facilities
Situated in Coventry in the West Midlands, we occupy an 80,000 square foot modern factory which houses manufacturing and testing facilities. These have been purpose-designed and built to enable us to design, manufacture and test high quality steering systems and components. Our flexible production capability allows us to alter schedules so that we are able to offer short runs and reduced lead times to meet our customers’ requirements.
- Technology that improves our service
- Our design team use modern CAD (Solid Works) software that enables them to provide detailed drawings that meet our customers’ specifications, however exacting.
- Using 3D printers, we can feed in the CAD drawing and produce a prototype out of resin. Using this process, we are able to produce a prototype in just a few hours rather than the days that it takes to produce one by using traditional methods. This time-saving can be crucial when customers are on a tight deadline.
- State-of-the-art specialist machinery
Both our manufacturing and testing facilities have been equipped with modern machinery featuring the latest technology. This enables us to initiate progressive product improvements and develop new designs.
- Our valued personnel
There is little value to investing in the latest machinery and technology if our personnel are not able to use it to its full potential. This is why we invest in our employees and provide continuous on the job training for all staff members. This is a commitment to bringing specialist skills to the steering industry and an investment in the future of our company and the industry as a whole.
We are dedicated to designing commercial vehicle steering systems that deliver high performance and are robust, reliable and, most of all, safe. We don’t provide ‘off-the-shelf’ products. All of our steering systems and components are designed to meet the needs of a particular vehicle or a customers’ range of vehicles.
