About Pre-met

Pre-Met was originally based in Maidstone, England and originally serviced two distinct markets:

  • High value accessories such as cuff-links, cigarette lighters, pens etc in to high end markets such as Dunhill, Gucci and similar
  • Telecommunications components comprising pressed and stamped metal switch components and connectors to, in the main, British Telecom (and it’s fore-runners)

The company evolved from its humble beginnings and carved a niche providing metal stampings, pressed components to the developing telecommunications industry eventually assisting British Telecom develop the (white – BT431) plug and matching socket that is still widely in use today.

In 2005 Pre-Met acquired the well-respected Lewis Spring company based in Redditch. The two organisations were then merged in to the Lewis Spring site in Studley Road, Redditch and the operations consolidated. Focus was given the two companies core activities and the company underwent a period of rationalisation and efficiency improvements to streamline manufacture in line with current lean, 5 S, Kanban and SMED best practices.

To further develop the organisation Pre-Met then acquired J.G. Ross who were a low volume metal pressing and stampings business which predominantly serviced the Aerospace and Defence market sectors. This business was also absorbed in to the Redditch site.

Today Pre-Met has a turnover of some £5 Million per annum and employs 55 people at the Redditch facility. Financially stable and with an experienced and well respected management team Pre-Met has strong ambitions for the future with further strategic acquisitions under review.

Pre-Met continues to monitor their core markets for metal pressings and stampings and continues to invest in their personnel, plant, capabilities and facility to ensure that they are as flexible as possible and able to meet to needs of the most demanding of customers. Such investment enables us to be competitive in the global market place and even compete with low cost economies. However, we do also make use of some low cost economies to keep tooling costs competitive, thereby giving us an edge in our global markets for pressed and stamped metal components.
