MACHINE CAPACITY | MARLOWE ENGINEERING
 
Parker-Hale has been involved in the process of barrel making for almost a hundred years, employing traditional skills and hand-craftsmanship that have been the envy of the world.

In the early 1970's, following considerable investment in new machinery and techniques, the company was acknowledged as one of the finest barrel producing plants in Europe.

Continual investment in the latest technology and machining keep Parker-Hale at the forefront of quality component manufacture.

Today, under the new management of the Modular Industries group, Parker-Hale benefits from new investment and the incorporation of other precision engineering divisions to become once again, a leading manufacturer of high quality barrels and specialist firearms components.

Amongst the original equipment are two horizontal forging machines, originally designed by Parker-Hale and the first all-British barrel cold forging machines in the world. Other plants include two SIG double spindle deep hole drillers, two Cincinnati multi-spindle turning machines, reamers, buttoning machine, straightening barrel grinders and honing machines. The company also has its own in-house chemical blacking vats.
