Started in 1993 by Dave Senior and Steve Nash, DSN Classics aimed to provide a specialist retail and trade parts service to the Mini & Morris Minor market. In 1997 our website was launched, making DSN Classics one of the first to provide full e-commerce in the industry. On the 1st January 2005, DSN Classics became a Limited company.
A major development took place in 2008 with the purchase of a CNC mill. This allowed DSN to design and manufacture, in house, a new range of billet alloy products for the Mini. This range was called RetroSport and has become hugely popular. So much so, it has necessitated further investment in CNC machinery. The RetroSport range continues to grow as new products are developed.
In November 2015 founding partner Steve stood down and was succeeded by Dave’s son James, making it a family owned business. DSN combined with James’s business, S-CAN, a well-established 3D scanning bureau, in March 2016. This has added 3D scanning, 3D printing and laser marking to the growing range of services and capabilities the company is able to offer.
In March 2019 another major development took place when sales of standard Mini and Minor parts were stopped to allow the engineering side of the business to take priority. This was further reinforced in July 2019 when the company was renamed as S-CAN 3D Ltd. We have now added sales of 3D printers and consumables, and 3D scanners to compliment our range of engineering services.
