Top Things to Look For in a Metal Fabrication Company

How to Find the Top Metal Fabrication Company

 

What is Metal Fabrication?

Metal fabrication involves the bending, manipulation and cutting of metal to build specific structures or products according to a design drawing or sample. The assembling stage is the final part of the process and is when the product takes its proper shape. Which assembling processes are used will largely depend on the type of product to be manufactured and the type of metal used will depend on design specifications. We specialize in the use of the following metals: Molybdenum, Tantalum, Tungsten, Zirconium, Niobium and Titanium.

 

How to Choose the Best Metal Fabrications Company

Choosing the right metal fabricators for your project can be a daunting task with so many companies claiming to be the best. Do not be swayed by any one selling point used by individual metal fabricators but rather compare a number of key factors that influence your bottom line;

Capabilities

The capacity of any firm under consideration is a crucial factor since they may make high quality products but may not have the capacity or space to handle an order above a certain magnitude. Please feel free to contact us to discuss your specific requirements.

Experience

Any prospective company should be appropriately experienced in all of the areas essential to your project. Between our team we have more than 120 years of experience in the field of specialist metals. This affords us a breadth of knowledge and varied experience to call upon within the areas of new and established fabrication projects.

Customer Service

Do not be afraid to ask any approaching company what steps they have taken to improve their levels of safety and quality, and look for companies that share in your own values as a business in terms of customer service and quality. After all, their customer service to you has a direct effect on the customer service you can extend to your own clients. We offer same day quotations and you can upload your drawings directly to our website.

Investment in Equipment

It is your right to ensure that any company you trust with your metal fabrications, has the correct tools and equipment to carry out your project effectively and to a good standard. Ask to see past projects and ask which machines are used in the whole process. Visiting the workshop of any prospective firm should not be a problem to a reputable outfit. We have invested considerably in high quality lathes, CNC milling machines, Sheet metal equipment, welding chambers & boxes as well as aqua blasters and rumblers, just to name a few.

Value Added Services

The provision of value added services which make the turnaround time of your project should also be of keen interest to you. Companies which contract out such jobs as welding and assembling to third party firms may be introducing a weak link to your supply chain. We do all of our machining and welding in-house and offer next day delivery on stock items and machined parts.

 

Metal Fabrication UK Accreditation and Quality Assurance

We are an ISO9001-2008 accredited company which attests to our commitment to quality assurance in all of the work we undertake.
