Universal’s two manufacturing divisions have no trading boundaries and operate under two names only for historical reasons. Although each division has its own factory, they are positioned adjacent to each other and as with all four of our divisions, have the same systems and operational structure.

We have a valuable blend of expert industrial knowledge and experience in manufacturing for performance and safety critical applications, such as aerospace, defence, power generation, specialist vehicles and trailers, mineral and oil exploration, and telecommunications.
