Pentangle Engineering Services Ltd was formed in 2004 by its original founders:-
  • Mark Paterson (Managing Director)
  • Nigel Rivers (Company Director / Company Secretary)
  • Andrew Kennedy (Company Director)
Pentangle was set up to provide the manufacturing sector with specialist machine services and support.
Pentangle specialises in the production of robot systems, special purpose Automation machinery and support and has branded itself as a Robotics and Automation company to enable it to gain exposure in different market sectors.
The experience and expertise possessed by the co-founders enabled Pentangle to offer the complete engineered solution.
Many robotic, welding and Automation companies at this time could not offer an in house ‘Turnkey’ solution.
Pentangle started with a strong mechanical and electrical design background which enabled the company to offer sound engineered solutions.
Pentangle placed a big emphasis on Customer Support and Service and where many others failed Pentangle flourished.
Kevin Meakins and Keith Adcock both joined Pentangle as directors in June 2005 bringing with them further strength in the design and machine build disciplines.
A Laser marking and cutting division was formed in December 2006, Tom Tyndall joined Pentangle as a director. Tom brings a wealth of experience from within the laser marking and cutting industry.
Pentangle purchased its new 4000 sq. ft. manufacturing and office facility and moved from the old factory to the new premises in May 2007.
December 2008 saw Steve Ashwin employed as Sales Manager bringing many years experience in the welding and Automation industry.
Pentangle gained the accreditation for ISO9001 (2008) in early 2009.
Increased workloads and additional members of the team needed to be catered for and Pentangle expanded into the next door unit, another 4,000 sq. ft. manufacturing and office facility, in 2009.
Further increases in workloads and shortages of skilled personnel, led Pentangle to take on their first apprentice in September 2011.
Alan Hardisty joined Pentangle in November 2011 to build up in house fabrication. This was a great success and soon became Pentangle Fabrications, our sister Company. Alan became the M.D of Pentangle Fabrications.
In 2013, Pentangle Engineering were selected as "The Business of the Year" for our local area. Since then, Pentangle have become involved with several local Charities and are now part of the selection board for the Local Business Awards.
To date Pentangle has grown to 27 team members including 4 apprentices and has a sister Company that occupies units totaling 10,000 sq. ft. with it's own team and equipment including a new Laser cutting system, C.N.C Press and a number of Robotic Welding Cells for batch work.
