HUTCHINSON ENGINEERING LTDHutchinson Engineering Founder


Hutchinson Engineering is a medium sized family orientated business which was established in 1971 by Creighton Hutchinson, and has developed into one of Northern Ireland’s leading Sub-Contract Laser cutting manufacturing companies.

To find out more about Hutchinson Engineering Company history please see our interactive timeline.

Hutchinson Engineering was initially formed to serve the steel fabrication needs of the local agricultural community.  However when the downturn in the agricultural economy occurred, the company decided to diversify.

In 1999 Hutchinson’s invested in their first laser machine, an Amada Beta was installed.  Since then we have invested in the latest flatbed laser technology right up to present day and our fiber laser.

In 2009 our first Tube Laser was installed which can cut Box, Pipe, Angle, and Channel, and offers customers a huge saving in terms of time and money.

Hutchinson Engineering aims to be at the forefront of technology and has invested substantially in state of the art laser cuttingfolding and welding machinery as well as relevant 2D and 3D CAD systems in order to maximise the hardware available.

Operating from a 80,000 square foot state-of-the-art production facility in Kilrea, County Londonderry, Hutchinson Engineering offers customers operating in the aviation, agriculture, construction, energy and transport sectors the complete engineering solution.
