General Presswork

World-class general presswork from the industry experts

JLF Manufacturing has been producing general and precision presswork for over 90 years, working with many global manufacturers across a number of industries.

We produce highly accurate pressings for a number of cross-sector companies, and can meet exact specifications, guaranteeing a high degree of accuracy from the first component to the last.

Our general presswork services are ideal for the production of small to large batches of metal parts, providing a cost-effective solution when compared with alternative manufacturing methods such as press brake.
