Expansion and diversification for North East fabricator
Hartlepool-based Newbridge Engineering has undergone a restructuring and expansion programme to strengthen its position in the steel construction sector.
The company recently acquired additional premises adjacent to its existing facility and invested in a new Voortman V320C plasma plate profiler and drilling machine.
“This unit can cut up to 70mm thick plate and allows us to be more efficient and productive as all our fittings are now made in-house, without the requirement for any buy-outs, making us more streamlined across our production facility in Hartlepool,” said Newbridge Engineering Managing Director Phill Rose.
“Having survived the worst recession in our history, the company’s background was that of a sub-contract fabricator (working for other larger fabricators), but we’ve now diversified and work direct with main contractors.”
Newbridge Engineering is a family-owned business with a new senior management team headed by Mr Rose. He says they have transformed the business to become one of the largest structural steel fabricators in the North East by output.
“We have more than doubled the turnover of the business with the award of a number of local contracts for both regional and national main contractors.”
