About Hervé

Proud of our heritage.

Hervé Engineering was founded in 1850 by Louis Hervé. We're proud of our heritage - we started making bathroom taps over 150 years ago – but we move with the times, now running state of the art CNC machines producing precision components.

Five generations of the Hervé family worked in the business until towards the end of 2016 when ownership & day to day management of the business moved to a partnership of Howard Warrington & Michael Lloyd following retirement of Mr. Hervé.

Renowned for accuracy.

Howard and Michael lead a team of highly skilled people, many of whom have been with the company more than fifteen years. The business is focused on the part we play in the manufacturing supply chain. We are proud to supply components to some of the most respected manufacturing organisations.

We are passionate about delivering a first-class product to our customers on-time and to drawing. The company is renowned for accuracy and outstanding customer service. We are registered BS EN ISO 9001:2008 in addition to being a long-standing member of the British Turned Parts Manufacturers Association (BTMA).
