About us

W.H.Tildesley Ltd

Starting out in 1874, W.H.Tildesley Ltd is one of the oldest drop forging companies remaining in the United Kingdom.

A recent £1.4 Million refurbishment means that we now have the most modern drop forging facility in the United Kingdom. Our extensive in-house capabilities enable us to offer an efficient service by lowering the use of sub-contractors, improving quality and lead times.
