History and Reference

Company History

Elmill was formed in 1985 by Bryan Elliott and David Milford, and was incorporated in 1996 as Elmill Ltd. The entrepreneurial leadership of the business has evolved our products and services to adapt to the changes in the UK manufacturing landscape.

Starting as an engineering business servicing the local industrial and manufacturing businesses in the South West, swaging skills were recruited into the business in 1995 to address an opportunity in the provision of traditional technology.

We have subsequently built on our expertise of the swaging engineering process and the inherent equipment and tooling.
Our growth has been achieved working in many sectors over the years. Over many years the products we have supplied to customers have ranged from mandrels to make heart stents to neutron scatter plug sleeves, furniture legs to butterfly net handles, aerospace oxygen pipework to walking frames, ink jet printer components to tricycle frames, and radio switchgear to tractor pick up hitches.

We have a culture of innovation and diversification based on a desire to adapt our skills to the evolution of industry and the ancillary requirements of customers for certification, identification, backed up with appropriate accreditations.
