The Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP) will be home to Helix Tools’ new Technology Centre – and the Helix fully integrated model goes way beyond anything the traditional distributor has to offer.

We help our customers convert materials including exotic alloys into complex parts and components more profitably, facilitating secure line side supply of hi-tech branded cutting tools.

Charles Robinson, managing director said “Our new Technology Centre demonstrates our commitment to the South Yorkshire region where we are experiencing significant growth in terms of new business and machine tool investment.

Having a regional branch ensures our growing client base can access fast and effective technical support from our local application engineers.

Having started from Charles and Louise Robinson’s spare room back in 1994, at their 10 year anniversary Helix moved from a leased unit in Bradford to their own purpose built HQ located in the heart of Yorkshire on the Leeds M1 & M62 crossover.

To mark their 20 years Helix have just taken offices with the prestigious Advanced Manufacturing Park in Rotherham as a sign of their further commitment to the South Yorkshire marketplace.

The business has grown to over £6m turnover and employs over 20 people at the two sites.

“Helix Tool Co have been a technology supply partner to AES Seal for 14 years with their business growing alongside our own,” said Chris Parkin of AES Seal.

“They have consistently delivered increased productivity and reduced costs across our Yorkshire sites with exceptional customer service at all levels of the business.

“We look forward to continuing our partnership for many years to come as we continue to grow and develop new technologies within the business.”
