The late Charles Dugard established C Dugard Ltd in 1939. The company was principally involved in sub-contract manufacturing and the sale of used machine tools. The company has grown and is today involved with the sales and backup of new quality machining centres from around the world, in addition to being a major player in the supply of second hand machine tools and is still a family concern under the control of the directors Bob and Eric Dugard.
In 1978 after many successful years of involvement in the sales of new and used standard machine tools, the company entered the market of new CNC machine distribution. The Dugard brand supports a huge range of machinery including vertical and horizontal machining centres, CNC Lathes, Multi Function CNC Lathes, CNC Machining Centres and Borers as well as Bridge Type Machining Centres. As the needs of the modern assembly line keep evolving, we are excited to also carry cobots by Hanwha, collaborative robots that make 24/7 production easier than ever. Dugard CNC machines are sold throughout Europe, Russia and the Middle East through a network of dealers who are able to supply machines on a quick delivery due to the stocking power of Dugard. For over 30 years Dugard has been one of the largest importers of CNC machines into Europe and we have a large CNC machine sales force to sell directly in the UK and Ireland.
This experience in sourcing machine tools of high quality as well as value for money has allowed Dugard to set up a strong agency network with some of Europe's most respected machine tool dealers who can provide local sales and service backup. Added to this Dugard are the exclusive UK dealers for Kitamura, Hanwha, Chevalier, Tos Varnsdorf, Matec and You-Ji, as well as being the agent for SMEC not only in the UK but also throughout Europe, Russia and the Middle East. The Dugard range of CNC lathes and vertical machining centres is very well established and sales of Dugard products are set to increase thanks to their reliability and value added features. With a group sales turnover of US$40million we can still give the personal touch but with the corporate strength of a large company. We have a wide range of machinery on display at our Head Office in Hove and welcome the opportunity to offer demonstrations at your request.
