“We have used APT Leicester for a number of years now, to produce a wide range of components that are shipped globally and we often receive positive comments upon the quality of the turned parts. This is down the great finish that the APT components always have, but maybe more importantly for myself apart from component quality, is that parts are always turned around and shipped both within the given time schedule and on budget.”
