The Engineering Draughting Co

Company History

The Engineering Draughting Co was started in February 2007 in response to the need for skilled engineering draughtsmen who could respond quickly to one off or short term needs within the water, rail and food processing industries.

The greatest strength of The Engineering Draughting Co is that their draughtsmen have learnt how to draw to sound engineering principles on the board before they learnt how to use CAD systems.

Engineering draughting is now seen to be a dying art as CAD systems take over, however, CAD systems themselves do not obviate the need for the sound engineering knowledge on the part of the draughtsman so that they can use those principles to produce drawings. In other words, knowing how to use AutoCAD does not in itself make a draughtsman.
