The Colt Precision Team

It's always good to learn about the people behind the business - even if it's just to understand who you're talking to on the phone or dealing with in the factory. We strongly believe that a business is only as good as the people within it.

A capable and constantly growing team that offers a wide and sometimes interesting collection of skills (not all in use at Colt Precision), we introduce each member to you. Many contribute decades of engineering experience to our business. And a great deal of specialist knowledge to help this proactive precision engineering business go from strength to strength.
