Mark Marriner is the new head of a leading innovative engineering company in Chorley

Founded in 1987, Chorley based Lyndhurst Precision Engineering has a new boss, following the retirement of founder and managing director, Philip Sweeney.

Taking over the helm is Chorley born Mark Marriner, who now lives in Tockholes, Darwen. Mr Marriner joined the firm in 1988, having come through the British Leyland apprenticeship system and was then part of the design team at Leyland Trucks.

Lyndhurst Precision Engineering specialises in customised engineering solutions, based on thorough research and development, including reverse engineering where necessary. The company has major blue-chip clients in numerous key sectors, such as nuclear, aerospace and defence, automotive, renewable energy, food and medical.

Commented Mark: “I am so proud to be appointed the managing director of a company where I have spent a significant part of my working career and where the manufacturing process is at the centre of our design philosophy. Phil and I have seen the company grow from strength to strength, with over 40 employees and customers as far afield as Japan and the USA.

“Lyndhurst Precision Engineering’s manufacturing expertise is recognised as world class, reflected in our recently BS EN ISO9001/2015 industry award, the international quality standard. We specialise in manufacturing to clients’ specifications, working with our customers to utilise our extensive research and development experience, combined with our forward-thinking approach, to deliver flexible and innovative solutions, for both simple and full-scale projects. In other words, we aspire to be the complete design and manufacturing company.

“Our employees are highly qualified and fully trained in the use of conventional and CNC machining, fabrication and water jet cutting, CAD modelling and reverse engineering. The manufacturing team is supported by experienced designers, with expertise across a multitude of industries, as well as our apprentices and interns.

“Finally, I would like to wish our founder, Phil Sweeney, a well-earned retirement. I am certain he will continue to offer us advise, as the company grows by expanding into other areas of precision manufacturing and new sectors, both in the UK and abroad.”
