Axel Engineering

Engineering in the Forest of Dean

Axel Engineering Ltd, formerly Hodder Engineering, have moved to new premises just along the road at Princess Royal Industrial Estate. We will continue to operate a traditional machine shop and, as a family run business who have been trading for over twenty five years, we know what we’re doing!

We provide high quality bespoke engineering services to local industry, farms and the public, whether it is a commercial application or a domestic requirement. This service is backed by in-house design and we undertake development and prototype projects, including machine building, for the individual or larger companies.

Our workshop is an old school jobbing shop with a selection of manual machine tools capable of almost any job thrown at us. We have the right people with the right skills and experience to cope with the most challenging requirements.

The type of skills, flexibility and experience we have at Axel Engineering make us a rare breed in modern times. We pride ourselves holding on to these skills and knowledge and putting it to work for you.

We, as a team, have over 60 years of combined experience from a wide range of backgrounds. From a high speed production environment to oil and gas maintenence and construction, we also have vehicle renovation specialists. Much of this experience has been gained overseas as well as in UK industries.

We have our own design facilities so can help you work out the best solution to an engineering problem, big or small. Our workshop boasts a wide and varied range of machinery to make light of any job.

Probabaly our biggest strength lies in our ability to quickly understand your engineering requirement, even off the ‘back of a fag packet,’ and rapildy provide what you need. We do our utmost to offer a quick turnaround while paying attention to detail and making sure you are happy with the result. We are currently persuing ISO9001 accreditation.
