Today, Metrol is the UK’s largest manufacturer of gas springs and we are extremely proud to export our quality British engineered and manufactured products around the world.


Metrol Springs was established in 1984 to introduce gas springs to the UK market. Since our humble beginnings we have grown and diversified into a global business with two strategic divisions; Metrol Tooling and Metrol Motion Control.

Located centrally within the UK, our main office and manufacturing facility has seen significant investment over the years with the latest CNC machinery; bespoke automation and manufacturing systems give Metrol an efficiency to produce high quality innovative products at competitive prices that are demanded globally by our customers.


Whilst Metrol has grown exponentially over the years, our core values have remained the same. Primarily working within the automotive industry where JIT deliveries meant downtime could be disastrous, Metrol’s philosophy has always been to make sure we do everything possible to get the parts to the customer on time. This can-do attitude along with flexible working practices and a proactive approach to solving customer issues is central to everything we do. As the business has expanded into new products and markets we have gained an excellent reputation as leading suppliers in our field.


To have a successful business, the plant and equipment are very important, but a good team is essential. At Metrol we have a well-established long serving management team that are progressive and dynamic. We actively embrace lean practices and the 5S within our ISO9001:2015 quality system with the aim of continuous improvement in all areas of the business.
