The Bowmill Group
The Bowmill Group comprises of three privately owned businesses, Bowmill Engineering, Bowmill Metal Treatments and Taymar Precision Grinding. Operating from our four separate facilities which occupy more than 72,000 sq.ft in, Poole, Dorset and Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, the group employs around 180 engineering staff.
Established in 1970, Bowmill Engineering initially focused on the manufacture of precision components for a wide range of industries.
By 1972, as demand from the Defence sectors increased dramatically, so the company expanded the scope and capacity of its services, culminating in a 12,000 sq. ft. purpose built factory on the Nuffield Estate in Poole.
In the 1980s, the business further expanded; manufacturing capacity increased by 50% and we incorporated separate buildings, housing machining, grinding and de-burring activities. We continued on a path of growth to become a strategic supplier to the industries primes.
From 2000 the business embraced a period of strategic investment and expansion, Bowmill Metal Treatments was purchased in 2004 which was aligned and integrated with the engineering division using established business improvement principles.
in 2007 with the purchase of an adjacent site on the Nuffield Estate, a dedicated manufacturing unit was designed and built to supply customers with direct line feed products using lean/KANBAN principles, this investment provided for a significant increase in capacity to meet growing customer demand.
In 2014 Bowmill purchased the precision grinding company, Taymar; this has allowed Bowmill to further complement its own grinding and spool and sleeve operations.
Our latest expansion was the opening of our fourth manufacturing unit in Tewkesbury, Gloucester. The facility was fully operational in 2018 which again has been aligned and integrated with the engineering division. In addition, enhanced manufacturing/robotics has been successfully introduced alongside advanced process logistics and quality management controls to further provide a global aerospace competitive service.
