01 Jun Celebrating 46 years fabricating
Well that’s not entirely true, we’re celebrating 46 years of business, but did you know we originally started in 1970 as sheet metal stockholders, and it’s only in the last 10 years we’ve been fabricating sheet metal in our Oldham factory?
Constant Aluminium Supplies Ltd, our original name, bought and sold Aluminium sections and extrusions distributing them around the UK. Over time, co-founder and now Chairman Richard Garlick saw a niche in the marketplace for kick-plates, push plates and small pieces of metal ironmongery. From that moment on our sister company Constant Engineering was born.
Constant Manufacturing started to bloom at the turn of the century, with increasing demand from customers for specific metalwork manufacturing and fabrication. Constant Manufacturing in the last ten years has become one of the largest sheet metal fabricators in the North West, with a flourishing range of capabilities from CNC laser cutting to full metalwork assembly and ancillary integration of parts.
Don’t let the state-of-the-art machinery fool you though, as all our staff are time-served in their respective disciplines, whether it’s our experienced sheet metal fabricators on the shop floor or the 140 years combined experience in our CAD department through to our certified electricians and our qualified team behind our business development division, who also boast a STEM ambassador among them. It’s the combination of our skilled staff and leading technology that allow us to give added value to our customer’s product ranges from a single source solution fabrication shop.
To mark our birthday celebrations, we’ve commissioned a company video, voiced by David Gilligan, our Operations Manager.
Constant Group are proud to celebrate our 46th birthday in sheet metal work this summer, and look forward to reaching our 50th milestone. Thank you to all our customers and staff for working with us over the years.
