XK Engineering was established in 1981 primarily as a classic car restoration company specialising in all that is Jaguar. Over a number of years the company built on its reputation for craftsmanship and became one of the world's foremost classic Jaguar specialists with a thriving global parts sales business.

The same ideals of craftsmanship, perfection, uncompromising quality & customer care has seen XK Engineering's corporate business extend and develop into the XK Engineering of today.

Although the classic Jaguar business plays a large part in XK's success, the company's corporate services have moved into highly specialised paint spraying. From XK's motoring heritage has evolved specialist paint techniques enabling XK to undertake projects as diverse as concept cars and prototypes, limited edition prestige production vehicles, low volume niche manufacturers work, show vehicles, train body painting and more recently the painting of art pieces for both exhibitions and private collections. Our automotive clients include some of the world’s most recognised brands but the confidential nature of the work means that we must refrain from listing them individually.

Today, XK has purpose built facilities covering some 100,000 sq.ft housing state of the art, purpose built high lux spray booths, along with fully equipped body work, mechanical and fabrication shops.

In 2010, XK Engineering was the subject of a buy out by its management team who had all been with the company for more than 20 years.

Having painted some of the most challenging substrates known, XK are sure that your project could not be placed in better hands. Please contact Dave Woods for a free consultation.
