About Us

COBA Precision, while being a newly launched name, has long-established roots within the engineering community. We design and develop prototypes, and provide short run and batch solutions for some of the UK’s most prestigious manufacturers across many market sectors.

The business has evolved from COBA International’s acquisition of Bowden Precision in 2013 bringing together two highly respected businesses in the world of engineering and manufacturing. Joining the globally renowned COBA International group has been the catalyst for growth, substantial investment in premises, machinery and technology. We operate from an impressive new purpose-built COBA Engineering centre at COBA International’s Headquarters in the heart of the East Midlands.

COBA Precision brings all your projects to life, however large or small. We partner you from the seed of an idea to ultimate production. We have the skill, commitment and capacity to deliver world class results. So, make COBA Precision your first choice for all your prototyping and engineering solutions.

The Bigger Picture

The original COBA business was founded on 12 August 1966 by the late Tony Cooke and Tom Bateman. That business was COBA Plastics Ltd operating from small premises in Coventry. It manufactured plastic extrusions and tubing, primarily for the automotive, motorcycle and caravan industries, such as Standard Triumph and Sprite Caravans in the late 1960’s.

COBA Plastics is today part of the COBA International group and is now firmly established as one of the world’s leading extrusion manufacturers, primarily supplying the automotive industry while offering cutting edge design and development support. The company also has dedicated sales and production facilities in Slovakia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Russia and South Africa.

As part of the dynamic COBA International group, COBA Precision has access to exceptional world class resources, and is a successful UK based business poised to become a global brand.
