Company History

BIE (Bristol Industrial Engraving) was formed in 1973 providing quality identification products. From simple engraved labels, panels and nameplates to sophisticated machined and sub surface printed products. In 1983 BIE formed a partnership with Magnum Finishing Company, adding paint finishing to our portfolio. Then in 2006 the two companies merged to one premises and one company forming BIE Magnum. In 2016 BIE Magnum was sold and has received heavy investment and restructure in order to develop a strong foundation to grow.

    We’ve worked with BIE on several projects now, and I must congratulate them, and their team for the fantastic service they provide us. We’ve had some very complex and demanding pieces which have required masking and painting to very exacting standards, and, with extremely limited lead-times. The team at BIE have always exceeded our expectations in quality and delivery schedules. (more…)
