Good Evening

I'm thinking of placing an order with this supplier whom I have not used before so I'm wondering what their quality is like /

I can thoroughly recommend them. I have dealt with them for a number of years. Very quick service, good quality and if you need to phone them you will find them very helpful and knowledgeable.

Can only agree with Norman. Used them for many years. Quality service and supplies.

I think they are brilliant especially materials. Got some silver steel a little while ago to make some collets for the Quorn which was properly annealed and machined beutifully. I always use their free machining Steels too.

They do operate a signed for service by default which you can opt out of if you wish by eMailing Richard on the company email if you just want the stuff left on the doorstep or whatever. Service is next day or the day after.

regards Martin

Hi Harry,

My experience with Kennions is good, I have bought materials from them and I'm very satisfied with their service.

Can only fully agree with the above, use them often. Materials are always excellent as is the service. Their castings are very good too , clean with good machining allowance and machine nicely.

The material and parts I get from them is always good, fair pricing, reasonable carriage charges and great service.

Hi, they have been in business for many years and derived by GLR Distributors Ltd. incorporating Kennion Bros (Hertford) Ltd. back in the early 90's and have had one or two changes in management since. I've used them many times over the years and haven't had any course for complaint, their castings compare equally well with others.

Regards Nick.

There were some errors in drawings for one of their own designs and when they became aware of this they commissioned corrections and sent out the corrected ones FOC to purchasers. IMHO this is very rare, if not unheard of.

Fast service, reasonable prices and quality goods and materials.

First time user of this supplier. I have just ordered 2 X 66mm dia x 38.1mm (1 1/2 " Bronze Bar to make two new nuts for my Myford VMC mill. I will post my progress including the cock ups as and when they occur.

They sell precision ground EN1A round bar. Never seen it anywhere else.

Should they stop selling it, is there anywhere else?

m-machine.co.uk sell it and I've always had good service from them.
