What do we do?

We specialise in all aspects of project management, from the design and manufacture of 1 off prototypes, to managing large engineering projects both in the UK and Overseas. We have the expertise to ensure a successful outcome, first time, every time. We are a one stop shop, with a vast supply chain. From transport to consultancy we cover every element of design and manufacture, so you don't have to.

Micro to Massive component manufacture,Our servises include, wire erosion, spark erosion, milling, turning, boring, grinding, hobbing, pressing, gear cutting, grinding, lapping, gun drilling, polishing, etching, galvanizing, zincing, you name it, Pioneer do it with excellence.

Using the latest 3D design software packages we are able to handle most 3D CAD formats. We can design and manufacture almost any mould, from plastic injection to large PU gravity fed moulds for the oil and gas and renewable sectors.

We are also experienced in compression, vac form, rotational and gas injected moulds these are all available from Pioneer Procurement.
