Directors, Lee Limbert & Peter Kirk combined their extensive knowledge and hunger to raise expectations in the metal polishing industry back in 2005. This union ultimately led to the founding of one of the region’s most respected and rapidly developing providers of all metal polishing and bead blasting services in the Manchester area and throughout the UK. Since then, Ace Polishing Services has grown exponentially and now employs over 14 members of staff, all fully versed in all aspects pertaining to the efficient, most cost-effective delivery of the highest standard of metal polishing and bead blast finishing.

With a growing reputation as the UK’s No.1 mechanical metal polishing service provider, this has led to APS being commissioned to work on some of the most demanding & prestigious projects not only in the UK but around the world. The mirror polishing of the 190 metres tall Baku Flame Fountains in Azerbaijan back in 2008 (which received numerous awards)  along with the London Paddington (finch project – cloudscape) mirror polished roof canopy in 2017 has set APS apart from their competitors and only further enhances their reputation in the metal polishing industry.
