About Howarth Engineering

RA Howarth Engineering is run by second generation brothers Andrew and Mark Randall, who took over the mantle from their father and founder of the company over 15 years ago. They are aided by a team of highly experienced and trained engineers and over the years have been able to establish a solid dependable team of long serving certified engineers, most of whom have developed their skills with the company.  

We are committed to the continued growth of the company recently expanding to an additional unit in Earl Road, Rackheath and take pride in our capabilities to recruit and train the next generation of engineers. We have therefore been able to take on 4 apprentices in the last few years to supplement our ever growing work force, including William Randall the third generation to work for Howarth Engineering!

As of February 2018, RA Howarth Engineering Ltd were acquired by local company Milltech Precision Engineering Limited. Through providing a range of complementary and extended machining services, both companies capacity has now expanded greatly to benefit both our customers & suppliers. The acquisition of Howarth Engineering supports Milltech’s continued growth plans and accelerates entry into new and adjacent markets.

Since their own acquisition by Indutrade AB in March 2015, Milltech have benefited from significant investment in new CNC plant and processes. Initially both companies will continue to trade under their own names, and no immediate changes are planned either the management structure or the supply chain procurement process at either company.

We still think that what makes us different is our ability to provide a personal service whilst, being large enough to meet most challenges. We are here and ready to demonstrate how we can provide a second to none service for your operation, all we need is an hour of your time, we are willing to visit, investigate, innovate, test and be tested if that means gaining a customer for the next 40 years or more!
