Reekie pioneered the concept of in situ machining. Today, it is more in demand than ever. We have over 90 portable machine tools ready to go. If we don’t have the right tool, we will either modify an existing one or we will build a bespoke tool to order. Our tools are operated by highly experienced Reekie engineers and operators, working to the tightest tolerances demanded by the most demanding industries. Reekie offer highly flexible contract hire arrangements and will carry out surveys and quotations at short notice.
