Who Are We?

Kirkstall Precision Leeds Directors

The co-owners of Kirkstall Precision John Thornton and Timothy Buckley took control in December 2010 after the retirement of two former directors. The company was originally established in 1988 by Mr. Ravenscroft & John Thornton as Scope Precision but took its present name after a management buy-out in January 2007.

Manufacturing bespoke Instruments, Components & fully functional Assemblies for the Medical & Oil industries. We also pride ourselves in not only being involved in the de-commissioning B38 project for Sellafield, but being a key supplier of component parts for Textile Testing machines that are designed, assembled & calibrated here in West Yorkshire and sold around the world by a multi award winning Company.

Conscious of the fact that Manufacturing in the UK is unfortunately in decline one of our key objectives is the introduction of a trainee every year to fulfil an Engineering Apprenticeship up to HNC level. By doing so we are encouraging a new generation of Engineers into the Manufacturing sector to re-establish a tradition that made Britain “Great”.

John Thornton.
