Who uses Warco machines?

It was in 1975 that we started selling machinery and tools, and over the course of the last 46 years we have supplied many thousands of machines to customers worldwide.

To all of those that have chosen to buy from us, we’d like to take the this opportunity to say thanks. Whether you’re a budding model engineer just starting out needing a tool for a new home workshop, or a volume buyer at a household name company, we still appreciate every single order – even after all this time, and no matter how big we get.

We’re not normally the types to shout about it, but wanted to briefly share a list of a few highlights from some of the better known names that have bought from us and use Warco machines – that we remembered at the time of writing at least. (Plus we noticed some folks who perhaps hadn’t come across us before had searched “Are Warco lathes or machines any good”, so it was probably about time we posted something like this – by way of reassurance that they were judged good enough for some leading names in sectors such as aerospace, defence and education, as well as well known makes like JCB and Rolls-Royce.)
