About Alexander Pollock


Founded in Edinburgh in the early 1900's, Alexander Pollock has seen many changes since its inception. For many years the business successfully provided precision engineering products and services to the industrial, commercial and professional sectors. The formation of Alexander Pollock Limited in 1970, was a continuation of the growth of this long established private business.

When CNC machinery was introduced to the engraving world in the early 1980s, Alexander Pollock were quick to exploit its potential. Several generations of CNC machinery passed through the doors, as technology progressed.

Alexander Pollock first achieved status as a quality company in 1994, after it achieved full accreditation to ISO 9002.

In the year 2000 the company was purchased by Acorn Stairlifts, bringing many opportunities to the business - with the introduction of group facilities and shared resources. The company relocated to its current premises in Haddington, East Lothian in 2001.

Present Day:

Engraving is our core business. We operate as an engineering company and not a shop.

Our services / products are supplied nationally and globally to many different market sectors.

We have continued to invest in high tech engraving equipment, in the form of machine and laser engraving machines, as well as supporting software and hardware. We are established as a leading high-tech engraving company in the UK and beyond.

Our workforce has a wealth of engraving experience – but also has a youthful element. Our machine operators serve a four-year apprenticeship, in machine engraving.

Alexander Pollock Ltd are fully quality accredited to BS EN ISO9001:2015.

Going Forward:

Alexander Pollock will consider investing in technology which will enhance the performance of the business, keeping the company at the forefront of engraving / cutting technology.

We recognise a skilled workforce is equally as important as high-tech machinery and we will continue to provide training accordingly.

We are committed to the ISO 9001 quality system.
