McLaren Stainless also offers a ‘concept to commission’ service, taking customers from an initial concept through design engineering, production of full working drawings, work-shop fabrication, site installation and final commissioning. The company ensures high level quality control at all stages of its processes.

<h5>Rob McLaren</h5>
Rob McLaren
Managing Director

Rob's first engineering feat was while at High School when he designed and built his own mountain bike. It's fair to say the bike was no Specialized but it set him on a course of creating leading edge engineering solutions. Rob is a third generation McLaren to operate the business, following in the footsteps of his father Bruce (not of F1 fame) and grand father Reg. Rob takes a common sense approach to engineering and likes adding sleek design and simple SMART technology to equipment.

Laser & Waterjet Specialist

Nick's the man when it comes to bringing a drawing to life. All he need's is a bit of tracing paper and he can cut anything out on our laser machine. He loves a challenge and to push laser cutting to its limit. If you need a part that's going to take days to ship from the other side of the world, why not contact Nick and he will re-create it quick smart. And if you're thinking sprockets etc, well think again. Nick's been known to laser cut tea pots and 21st celebration keys too.
