A Brief History

As owner of the company, I would like to thank you for calling into the Swages Engineering website.


The company has grown from humble beginnings.

In 1978 my father, John Graham, started the business with a second-hand Herbert 2D Capstan lathe, a drill press and bench grinder.

The company name evolved from the fact that in those early days John manufactured swages for yacht rigging .

I purchased the company 20 years ago and since then have seen remarkable growth and a huge investment in capital plant, our staff, and our customer relations.

We compete on the world stage, having secured contracts with companies enjoying global distribution in the medical, lighting, and military areas, but we place particular importance on looking after and serving the local market.

Operating now with a staff in excess of fifty, I am proud of what has been achieved.

While the company has changed and grown over the past two decades, the integrity and focus with which we conduct our day-to-day business has remained the same.

Trusted Since 1978
