Dawson Precision Components (DPC) was founded in 1965 by Bill Dawson and Frank Dawson, who initially supplied parts to manufacturing and engineering clients including the Ferranti Group. The quality ethos was evident from the first day of business.
Our business is still family-owned today, now run by Managing Director Simon Dawson, Finance Director Julie Hughes and Sales Director Paul Dawson.
In recent years we have expanded our facilities and services, investing significantly in the latest machining equipment, new production control software, inspection facilities and skills to boost our already enviable reputation.
Today the company employs almost 50 staff and great emphasis is placed on their skills, training and career development.
We have an excellent reputation in the precision engineering, component manufacturing and training sectors for our products, services and facilities, along with our highly-skilled workforce and apprenticeship programmes.
Dawson Precision Components (DPC) combines quality engineering and precision manufacturing services with the friendly style and values of a progressive family-owned business.
Our aim is to provide the best CNC milling and turning services, and to manufacture top-quality precision components for clients in sectors including medical, marine, automotive, aerospace, aviation, petrochemicals and utilities.
A family-run business, we place great emphasis on product quality, integrity, service, and excellent relationships with clients and staff.
We have highly experienced and qualified personnel across all our manufacturing and ancillary services.
Our values are reflected across our business through our punctual and bespoke customer service, quality products, excellent career opportunities and benefits for staff and our wider links to the community.
A socially responsible company, we are keen to take an active role in the local community. We regularly offer work placements for local students and also support the business community and charity events.
We are keen to promote manufacturing and engineering in the UK and welcome visitors to see our facilities in Oldham, Greater Manchester, to find out more about DPC.
