Presto was established in 1991
Presto is a family business owned and run by Julian Lay and his youngest son James. The focus of Presto is the CNC Machining of precision aluminium parts.
Julian founded Presto Engineering in 1991 and it is located in Stanton Harcourt, Oxfordshire, 10 miles west of Oxford. James joined the business in 2014 and has brought a new dynamic to the team. Together they are taking the business to the next level and long into the future. Prior to starting the business Julian completed an Engineering Apprenticeship and subsequently worked at Williams Grand Prix Engineering where he gained much of the knowledge and skills that are still used day to day in the business now.
Consistent growth and investment has resulted in Presto building a loyal customer base, the majority of whom came to us by recommendation. We are very proud of our customers, some of whom we have seen grow from ‘start-up’ to leaders in their field of expertise.
We are constantly refining our processes to enhance our efficiency and always looking for new challenges whether it be exploring new markets or investing in new technologies.
However, the business ethos remains the same today as it was in 1991. To make the procurement process easy for our customers by delivering pristine aluminium machined parts, finished to the highest standards on time and at a fair price from one point of contact.
