Replicating ironwork / metalwork from bygone years is a process in which we are involved on a regular basis.
We have developed an extensive range of specialist machinery which is multi functional, enabling us to maximize production of replicated components. This combination of modern machinery and traditional skills means that our customers have the best of both worlds.
A major plus for us is our in-house tool room, an invaluable asset in replication. Our tool makers can produce tooling for particular functions from drawings, photographs and /or samples of the finished product.
