Sassen Engineering has developed and changed with the times over the 35 years they have been trading
Continually investing in modern technology means Sassen can manufacture in a wide range of materials, which include Brass, Steel, Stainless Steel, Titanium, aluminium, copper and phosphor Bronze.
In 2014, Sassen acquired the Border Barrels company from Dr Geoffrey Kolbe and we incorporated Border Barrels into our Birmingham base of operations. Border barrels was established many years ago when Dr Kolbe returned back from America after gaining valuable experience from barrel making legends such as Boots Obermeyer and Cliff Labounty. Over the years to come, Dr Kolbe continually improved the company by acquiring new machines and perfecting rifling processes. The lessons learnt from Border barrels are the roots in which Sasssen base their barrel manufacturing too this very day.
Since 2014 we have continually invested in the latest machinery and technology to further improve the barrel making process. We were the first company in Europe to pioneer barrel bore honing using the latest machine from Sunnen. Combined with a brand new Mollart-Drill Sprint, utilising barrel counter rotation and Bowtek double carbide gun drills and thus ensuring we're at the forefront of this industry for years to come. Coupled with outstanding customer service, we are proud to be Britain's premier barrel manufacturing company.
