About Us

Direct Assembly Solutions Ltd (DASL) and Metalwork Solutions Ltd (MSL); operate from the same premises, conveniently situated on the Marsh Barton Trading Estate in Exeter, Devon in the South West of England. We are here to support customers to achieve bespoke results ideally suited to their needs, whether that is specific designs, small batches, prototyping, or ongoing production runs. We thrive on the challenge of keeping a UK manufacturing base alive and love working with small, medium and large companies in partnerships based on mutual benefits.

Metalwork Solutions Ltd

MSL was formed in 2004 through a management buyout of an existing metalworking facility. We work predominately in mild steel, aluminium and stainless steel. We are used to working with customers to achieve bespoke results with a fast turnaround. The business has a one stop shop approach to metalworking that includes a powder coat paint facility in house. Items can often be produced within hours allowing our customers to meet their business needs rapidly.

Direct Assembly Solutions Ltd

DASL came into existence in 2008 to add value to MSL’s metalwork offering to the electronics and electro-mechanical industries. Our concept was to offer support to local businesses requiring electronic manufacturing in small quantities, competitive procurement pricing, assistance with circuit or sub assembly population or help with making their own manufacturing processes efficient and effective.

Since starting the business we’ve been asked to produce hardware design conceptsdesign and layout circuits, procure and populate printed circuit boards as well as help case and functionally test products.
