About Us

Gen-Fab Limited was established in 1997 by expert metalworkers Darrell Charlesworth and John Shaw to provide metal fabrication and welding solutions. Our vision was to provide our customers with the highest quality workmanship and grow Gen-Fab into a market leader.

18 years on, and we have achieved our original vision. Gen-Fab is one of the best-regarded laser cutting and fabrication specialists in the UK and the company has grown considerably since its inception, now employing a crack team of expert metalworkers who work on jobs that range from 1 to 1 million products. Combined, our team has 30 years of experience in the metalwork industry, and there’s very little that we can’t achieve for our customers.

To us, the customer is everything

To us, the customer is everything. We understood 18 years ago that providing the highest quality metalwork wasn’t enough to be successful; we also had to put the customer first and deliver an exceptional level of care. That’s why from the moment we meet our customers we go out of our way to help them and to form a close relationship. This ensures that we understand our customer’s requirements perfectly, so that we can exceed expectations.

We are committed to quality – always

We are a quality-driven business committed to providing the highest standards of workmanship. To demonstrate our total commitment to quality, we work to ISO 9000 standards and we have strict quality standards; if we aren’t satisfied, we’ll do it again.

We are continuously investing in our machinery and equipment and training to ensure that we can always provide our customers with the best metalwork solutions. Our state-of-the-art equipment allows us to work on all sizes of project with short lead times.

Investing in the future to meet tomorrow’s demands

When Gen-Fab was first founded, we focused on fabrication and welding. Rapid growth during the early 00s forced us into the industrial laser cutting market, and since then we have been providing expert steel profiling and fabrication services using these tools.

But we don’t just offer fabrication, welding and laser profiling; we also specialise in metal press work and we offer a range of other services for all industries. As a modern, forward-thinking business, we are continuously investing in the latest tools to ensure that we can meet our customer’s requirements and meet the demands of the future.

Why Gen-Fab?

Because we care about your job as much as you do; because we never settle for ordinary; because we go out of our way to ensure quality and because we can help you to realise your dreams. Also, did we mention that we have some of the shortest lead times in the industry?

Being a Gen-Fab customer means that you always know that you will get the best end product and customer care alongside total transparency and commitment – guaranteed.
