Quote from their website:
York Modelmaking was established in 1969, manufacturing architectural and museum models. The purchase of our first laser cutter in 2007 revolutionised our building techniques, allowing us to create previously unattainable levels of intricate detail. The laser-cutting process also speeded up the making of the building components, making these quality items affordable for hobby modellers. We launched our unique range of laser-cut architectural components for railway modellers in 2008.
