The Best People and Facilities

ACE’s state-of-the-art facility in Telford, Shropshire, UK is equipped with the latest production machinery, a dedicated laboratory that is continually looking at new processes and materials, and a full range of the latest state-of-the-art measuring capability.

A continuous investment programme ensures we stay at the forefront of new technologies and a similar commitment is channelled into attracting and developing some of the finest manufacturing personnel and technicians in the industry.

It’s an old cliché, but our staff - many of whom have been with us since the launch of the business – still remain our biggest asset.

They unlock the potential of the machinery and it is their innovation, attention to detail and engineering expertise that sets Advanced Chemical Etching apart from its competitors.

A growing international force

Competitive pricing and world class quality has seen ACE become an important partner to many global customers and this is reflected in export levels rising to a record 30% in 2011. This level is being continually monitored and further growth is expected in 2018.

New markets are being explored every day and orders have recently been placed from France, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Italy, USA, Mexico, South Africa and China. As a result we have points of contact across Europe.
