Precision manufacturing of
engine and chassis components

At its heart, Alcon is a manufacturer of the highest quality components for some of the most demanding clients of any kind, in any industry around the world. We use the latest 3, 4 and 5 axis machinery and CNC turning stations, enabling us to machine everything from major castings like crankcases and cylinder heads to machining from billet complex, performance-critical components like pistons and connecting rods for motorsport, classic car & automotive markets.

Perhaps the most instructive example of this is our work machining and manufacturing cylinder heads for a niche British sports car manufacturer. The unique challenge here is to produce heads in production car volumes, but with fully machined combustion chambers and ports, built to race car tolerances.

Plant List
As long-standing MIA members, I can vouch for the many years of experience which the Alcon team has in the design, development and manufacturing of engine components, based on their continual investment in the very latest machining centres.
Chris Aylett, CEO of the Motorsport Industry Association

We supply complete gearbox housings and differential cases to Xtrac – the world’s foremost competition transmission manufacturers – as well as producing cylinder heads for Aston Martin Racing for their racing sports cars. We also supply three current Formula 1 teams.

We have a substantial presence in the world of historic racing where we supply major engine cast components to the very best in the business, such as Crosthwaite & Gardiner and Pearsons Engineering.
