Tyler Bros (Sutton in Ashfield) Ltd – a family business since 1914

Tybro (as we are also known) was founded before the First World War and has been a part of the changing technology that has transformed the engineering world for the past century.

Progressing from motor and electrical engineers to precision engineering, Tyler Bros soon established an enviable reputation for its excellent standards – and today we continue to go from strength to strength.

A family business

A true family concern, spanning four generations, Directors Frank & Mandy Tyler have overseen a programme of considerable investment, increasing capacity and flexibility in order to reduce costs and lead times for customers.

Cutting edge machinery

The machine shop houses an impressive collection of cutting-edge machinery, chosen specifically to meet customers’ requirements and industry standards.

Skilled engineers

Perhaps our greatest strength is our hard working team of skilled engineers, whose wealth of technical knowledge and expertise enables us to offer a premium quality service and provide our customers with a complete engineering package.


Over the past forty years Tyler’s have played a crucial role in contributing to the running success of London Underground’s escalator division.

Their commitment to deliver on time and to drawing has ensured our refurbishment projectshave been successfully completed to budget and completion time.

A good working relationship and proactive attitude shown by Tyler’s has proven a valuable resource and has been proven when a quick turn round of components has been required.

Their experience in materials and machining options and advising us on this information has been an invaluable asset.
