Sub-Assembly Manufacturing

We have just updated our website to include our sub-assembly services. Many customers do not realize that we can combine our fabrication and machining departments to supply fully-assembled units. Please see the article below:


A sub assembly is a number of machined and fabricated components integrated into a single unit. 

For over 30 years D&D have been combining both their Fabrication and Machining capabilities to offer sub-assemblies to our OEM customers. By utilizing the sub-assembly service our customers place only one order and receive a an assembly ready to be fitted to their equipment.  Not only does this reduce the up-front purchasing work but it also reduces your shop floor requirement meaning they can concentrate on what they are good at!

  • Single order number for all components.
  • Delivered assembled, ready to be integrated.
  • Various levels of testing offered.
  • Reduce in house labour hours
  • Assembled Fabricated and Machined components all from one supplier.


  • Food
  • FMCG
  • Automation
  • Packaging
  • OEM’s.

D&D Apprentice Reaches WorldSkills UK final

Engineering apprentices Alexander Mason from Hedon and Daniel Coupland from Beverley are both on their way to the UK finals of the WorldSkills competition at the NEC in Birmingham on Wednesday 16th November.

Having reached the top six in the UK, the pair will be competing in CNC Milling, which is Computer Numerical Controlled machining.  This involves programming a computer control module to operate a lathe or milling machine to cut and shape metal and other materials with precision – all from complex technical drawings.  They are up against four other finalists from across the UK, vying for a place in the squad that will compete at the WorldSkills ‘Olympics’ in Abu Dhabi in 2017.

Alex, aged 20 is an apprentice engineer at D&D Engineering in Hull.  D&D Engineering specialize in bespoke items and produce products as diverse as conveyor systems for factories, packaging machines, valve wheels for ships, bottling plant machinery, and food dispensers that get jam into doughnuts.

Alex said, “It feels good to be through to the final, I’m happy that my tutors and employers saw me as good enough to be put forward for the competition.  The other competitors are at the top of their game, and taking part as one of the top six in the country is amazing.”

Alex’s employer, Mark Robinson of D&D Engineering said, “having Alex as an apprentice has really helped our business, along with the support and practical advice the College have given us.  The WorldSkills Competition is a wonderful opportunity for Alex.  Milling isn’t even his specialism, but it will stand him in good stead and we have supported him all the way – good on him!”

Danny, aged 21, works for John Hall Engineering in Bridlington who make many components including artificial hip joints and knee joints.  He said, “I’m feeling excited and nervous about the competition – a mixture of everything really, it’s been a lot of hard work to prepare, but it’s a good opportunity.  I’ve been practicing at weekends and teaching myself the software every night at home.  The idea of getting to the Worlds is a bit daunting, I’m just taking it one step at a time, and I’ll try my best.”

His employer, Martin Hall said, “We’re really proud of Danny for getting this far in the competition, it’s a real achievement. I know he’s been practicing in his spare time after work, and he deserves to do well.  It will be fantastic if he gets to compete in Abu Dhabi, on the world stage.  Having him as an apprentice has been great, it’s been of benefit to him and a boost for our business.”

Head of Engineering at East Riding College Gary Simm said, “Alex and Danny have achieved great things throughout their time at the College and are very able CNC engineers.  They both have the potential to be selected for the squad.  They are both on track to complete their apprenticeship programs ahead of schedule too, even though the competition has taken up a lot of their time.”

To get to the UK finals both apprentices competed at a regional level.  The competition is tough and involves making components to within a thou of a millimeter.  The component must be the right size and shape, include accurate, intricate marks such as tapped holes (a hole that is threaded to take a screw or bolt), drilled holes, ringed holes, and pocketed holes.  The competitors have to first program the machine using specialist software, interpreting complex technical drawings.  They then use the machine to create the component.  This is all done against the clock and there is no room for error – they work with one piece of metal or material, so there are no second chances!

Alex is from a family of engineers, his father and grandfather were both in the profession. When he joined the College after leaving school he believed he might be joining a dying trade, but in just the last few years he has seen more people coming into engineering and can see that it has a bright future.  He is keen to encourage others into the sector and his tutor Clive Isaacs has noted that Alex is a natural at instructing others in the technical aspects of the discipline, and is keen to pass on his expertise. So much so, that Alex has already been asked to help deliver the CNC masterclasses that the College delivers to employers in the area.

Clive also points out: “The competition has highlighted the importance of the College having this kind of hi-tech machinery for students and apprentices to train on.  The mechanical manufacturing field is changing and becoming more and more technical.  It is a field of engineering that is evolving particularly quickly, and East Riding College apprentice engineers are at the forefront of it.  The competition can only improve Alex and Danny’s chances of advancing in the profession in future, and bring benefits back to the businesses that first gave them a chance as an apprentice.”

D&D Granted ISO 9001:2015 Certification

After many months of hard work and reviewing our processes we are pleased to announce that we have passed our Stage 2 ISO 9001:2015 audit and have been granted full qualification.  The ISO 9001 quality standard is not just about obtaining a certification, we have worked hard to streamline our processes in order to reduce risk, increase quality, be more efficient and most of all improve our customer satisfaction.

We hope over the coming months and years that our customers, suppliers and staff benefit from our efforts and that together we can increase quality, undertake new opportunities and strengthen our partnerships.


What is ISO 9001:2015?

“ISO 9001 helps organizations demonstrate to customers that they can offer products and services of consistently good quality. It also acts as a tool to streamline their processes and make them more efficient in their production process. Acting ISO Secretary-General Kevin McKinley explains: “ISO 9001 allows organizations to adapt to a changing world. It enhances an organization’s ability to satisfy its customers and provides a coherent foundation for growth and sustained success.”


A word from our Operations Director Alan Bayston:

Adopting this international standard is a strategic decision for D&D Engineering. To quote the standard “it will improve our overall performance and provide a sound basis for sustainable development initiatives”. D&D already had many robust processes prior to commencement of the certification process, however, improvements had to be made in the area of inspection and reporting, risks and opportunities, manufacturing controls and design control. All are now fully implemented and are sufficiently embedded into the daily activites of the organisation. Customers will benefit the most through consistency of products and services and enhanced overall satisfaction. Achieving certification will open doors for D&D and in turn secure its future as a premium engineering force”.


A word from our Managing Director Mark Robinson:

“I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Alan on the success of this accreditation without his hard work, exhaustive number of hours both in the office and at home, this would not have been achieved in the short time since he joined the company in May 2015. 

I would also like to thank Mr Ian Metcalf who has guided us through the process with an expert attention to detail giving us an “exceptional” system for the future processes of the business.

Finally I would like to thank all of our staff for their hard work, training and appreciation of the prospect this accreditation will focus for the company’s future development.

With the addition of ISO 9001:2015 the company’s continual investment and improvement programme is on target for future expansion”.



We would like to send an extended thank you to all of our customers and suppliers for supporting us through this process and with the assurance that all parties will prosper over the coming months and years.

In addition we would like to thank all of our staff who endorsed the ISO9001:2015 standard and made transition a success for our customers and suppliers.

D&D are proud to be a part of Green Port Hull

The Green Port Hull vision is to establish Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire as a world class center for renewable energy, creating wealth and employment for the region.

Artist’s Impression of Green Port Hull

By taking advantage of the Port of Hull’s prime location in relation to the offshore wind opportunities in the North Sea the region is perfectly placed to capitalise on the UK’s offshore wind industry.

Hull City and East Riding Councils and Associated British Ports (ABP) along with  partner organisations have been working together to ensure that this ambitious vision becomes a reality.

Through the Regional Growth Fund significant funding has been secured for skills & employment, business support, and research and development to ensure that local people and business gain maximum benefit from the renewable energy sector.  The University of Hull is working to ensure that the knowledge element of the sector establishes itself in Hull.

These attributes are the reason that Siemens has chosen Hull as the location to build its world class offshore wind turbine blade manufacturing, assembly and servicing facilities that will form the centre piece of Green Port Hull.

The Siemens investment will be the catalyst for the Green Port Hull vision as we work jointly to optimise the co-location advantages of the offshore wind supply chain.

As well as offshore wind there are major opportunities in bio fuels, carbon capture and storage, waste to energy, solar, wave and tidal power generation.

The renewable energy sector will be the single biggest influence on the local economy for generations, creating thousands of new jobs along with a wealth of opportunity for local people and business.
