Having been in the trade for more than 20 years manufacturing spiral freezers, installing throughout Europe and also varied sheet metal and fabrication work,I thought it was time to 'go it alone'.
Therefore, in September 2002, SAS SHEETMETAL & FABRICATION LTD was born! We started in a humble 1900 sq ft workshop with a small selection of equipment and help from my wife (our sole breadwinner) and Father-in-law (retired). We quickly began to grow, investing in modern machinery and employing extra staff; we progressed and eventually outgrew our workshop and expanded into a neighbouring unit.
It was in 2009 that we finally moved into one much larger premises and with six employees who have remained with us for many years we still remain a 'family run' business which has amassed a wealth of experience and built up solid working relationships with our customers.
In July 2012 we began to operate a laser cutting service which has not only enabled us to keep more 'in-house' costs down, but to also provide an extra service for our customers. We typically run on a 2-3 day service but depending on stock availability we can offer a same day local service on occasions. Last year, we had our workshop extended to provide extra manufacturing space and a purpose built workshop for the laser.
