About Us

meadow tool

Meadow was founded in 1993 by Jon Tipler and Rob Phipps. Based centrally in the town of Oadby in Leicester we are ideally placed with easy access to junction 21 of the M1.


The business quickly established itself as a reliable engineering and tool making service. In 1997 we purchased our first CNC Machine and CADCAM system. Since then the company has developed, blending conventional skilled manufacture with modern day CAD CAM design, programming and machining.  We now have multiple CNC Machines and CADCAM seats, as well as highly skilled pattern makers and engineers. Our newly created Solidworks based design department has allowed us to offer a complete design, prototype and evaluation service, which can be tailored for our customer needs. Meadow will develop your successful design concepts into production tooling and if required provide production vacuum form service.
