Whole CMG team and MDs

Operators

Our workforce is very experienced, long serving and loyal. The calibre of our team is industry-leading and have been pivotal to CMG becoming the MIM supplier of choice.

What sets us apart?

We have won awards for our innovative approach to work. We operate a 7-day working week but we have teams who stagger their shifts within this period. Full time hours are 35 a week and each employee works their hours within four-days. This has led to an increase in efficiency as our staff are able to maximise their focus and productivity.

Our MIM technology opens doors for our clients that simply cannot be accessed using traditional manufacturing methods. Our work is facilitated entirely in-house with close control of each process. Each of these elements has led to CMG Technologies becoming the UK’s leading MIM producer.
