HNC began by offering a support service to our former employers products. This service grew into retrofitting CNC controls, machine calibration, and a full machine rebuilding service employing many of our former colleagues in design, development and software writing along with specialist shop floor skills.

In the early days the company benefited from close links with Harkers Engineering in Stockton, for whom we built four very large and complex VTL machines for machining turbine casings. In subsequent years the machines were sold to the Harbin Turbine Company and moved to China. HNC was asked to project manage the installation of these machines at Harbin in Heilongjiang Province, China.

Our fundamental business strategy is building long-term client relationships. We have attracted and retained clients by providing superior customer value — in fact, over 90 percent of our work is repeat business from satisfied clients. This strategy yields cost advantages, profits, and growth for all of us.
