About us

Castle View Design Limited was founded by Mechanical Design Engineer Nick Hallworth, based in Warwick. At the time, Nick was living next to Warwick Castle - hence the company name. Nick writes:

"Castle View Design was born from a desire to break away from permanent roles and experience a wider array of engineering fields.

"My design skills are centred upon bespoke special purpose equipment, featuring precision machined components and fabricated structures. Contract values have been up to £1.5m on equipment for automotive, aerospace, pharmaceutical and theme park sectors".

We have a passion for engineering, and thrive on new challenges. So if you need to temporarily expand your team, we’d love to hear from you. Please get in touch so that we can discuss your needs.
