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 managing director Eric Dugard.
Konrad Nerc, Nerc Precision Engineering Ltd
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, CNC Machining Centres and 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.
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. Dugard are the exclusive UK dealers for Kitamura, SMEC, Hanwha, Chevalier, Ibarmia, Tos Varnsdorf and Honor Seiki as well as our own Dugard range. 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.
