About Dudley Associates

Dudley Associates was formed in 1990 by John Dudley, and moved to its current premises in Lutterworth, Leicestershire in 2004. Existing as a family-run business until 2008, Dudley’s was then acquired by mining industry specialist Peterstow Holdings, as a result of extensive development work undertaken on a new drilling technology.

In 2014 an exciting new chapter began for Dudley Associates. Following a Management Buy-Out ownership transferred to MC Industries, a company formed by current Directors of the company. Under MC Industries, Dudley Associates has exciting plans to expand its capabilities and explore new market sectors, particularly high-end technology sectors such as the aerospace. marine and oil and gas industries.

The company, accredited to ISO9001 for its quality management system, specialises in design and development, prototyping, toolmaking and injection moulding with a particular expertise in aluminium toolmaking. This complete in-house capability is increasingly rare within the plastic injection moulding industry, with many moulders now outsourcing toolmaking to third parties. Dudley Associates is proud of its capability and is able to claim that the complete manufacturing process is Made in Britain.
