DISC SKIMMERS LTD
MIDLAND TYRE SHAVING LTD
Formed in 2010 by Marcus Bailey.
With 37 years engineering skills including 15 years in a motorsport enviroment I took the plunge and formed a unique engineering service company.
I liked the incredible accuracy of the PROCUT ON-CAR BRAKE LATHE and its ability to solve many common problems with disc brakes but, disliked the sometimes poor service that was being provided with it. So I set up the UK's first specialist mobile on-car disc skimming service.
The company provides a mobile specialist service to main dealers, independant specialists and private owners across the UK.
Specialising in solving chronic brake judder problems.
The combination of a highly skilled machining engineer and the PROCUT brake lathe has been well received by many specialist businesses and private customers
Having re-developed the machine and its adaptors to allow me to provide a unique service for the high end sports and performance type vehicles including the bell and rotor (floating type) used by Lambourgini, Audi and Nissan GT-r's.
During this time I became aware of tyre shaving for motorsport, with research it soon became clear there was an opportunity to develope a machine to beat the tyre truck truing Amermac machine most racers were using.
2 years of developement has seen Midland tyre shaving machine to its goal of market leader in the uk motorsport world.
