Welcome to the Cavey Laboratory Engineering Company Limited home page.

We are delighted, from 18th August 2015, to have taken over the business of Mickle Laboratory Engineering Company Limited, manufacturers of the McIlwain Tissue Chopper and BK Drying Recorders.

Our initial interest in purchasing the business quickly became a strong desire as we could see the dedication to high production standards and impeccable service, qualities we absolutely value and are determined to maintain ourselves. Equally, we are honoured that the retiring Managing Director, Anthony Mickle, has entrusted to us the operation he has built up over several decades.

Simon Cavey, our Managing Director, has a recognised pedigree in precision engineering beginning his career in the field of medical and laboratory equipment and latterly using his extensive experience to build a strong reputation in the field of motor sport components. Adding the renowned Mickle Laboratory products to our range is a natural fit for us.

Clearly, continuity is vital in this specialist business, so we are very pleased with the decision of Mickle Laboratory Engineering expert staff to stay with us. Like Mickle, Cavey is a small company with similar ambition and we very much look forward to serving the valued customers who have trusted Mickle Laboratory Engineering for many years.
