Steel Fabrication Services - Specialists in Hygienic Fabrications

J&M Fabrications Ltd have recently expanded their fabrication facility and their service offering.

With an increase in turnover of 15% in the last few months alone, two new highly experienced fabricators on staff and the acquisition of new equipment the need for space was pressing. J&M now occupy units 1a & 1c of the Saxby Road Industrial Estate in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire – effectively doubling their space available for fabrication.

Batch Component Fabrication

The new space, staff and equipment enable J&M to extend their fabrication offering to include very cost effective batch work which previously hasn’t been practicable. With the new CNC Guillotine and Press J&M Fabs are now able to fabricate components which are both accurate and consistent and consequently suitable for batch applications.

The first job off the new equipment was for 40 components for a conveyor belt application. The client was very happy with the quality of the work, speed of delivery and the cost of the project.

The new 180 Tonne CNC Press can be used for the repetitive folding of steel sheets upto 2.5m x 3mm.

New Customers

As you would expect when a business expands it is often to cater for new customers. J&M is fortunate to now be working with a large manufacturing company involved in the supply of  industrial products and with another local manufacturing business needing hygienic fabrications for their production facility.

One of J&M’s long standing clients has been extending their dairy facility in north Leicestershire.

J&M helped by fabricating the curbings for the Bund Wall. The curbings are made of stainless steel and then filled with concrete. The concrete adds strength and ensures that there are no hollow spaces to harbour bacteria.

For those who are unsure what a Bund Wall is… it is a secondary containment system used to protect from spills and / or manage the flow of possible contaminants.

In recent months J&M Fabrications have been working with a number of new clients requiring specialist fabrication services.

The projects have included:

  • Guards, Electrical Boxes and Covers for a Rutland based company who are shipping internationally
  • Highly innovative prototyping fabrication for product development specialists, also Rutland based
  • Generator frames – made of tubular steel and plates for fixing generators to for a Leicestershire based company

As ever the team at J&M have enjoyed working with new clients to test their skills and extend the range of fabrications produced. The clients have obviously enjoyed the experience too – because they keep coming back.

The Melton Mowbray branch of national door & window manufacturing company Jeld-Wen UK Ltd has been upgrading production lines to increase capacity.

J&M worked with Jeld-Wen to provide a variety of mild steel fabrications for their production processes including:

  • frames for hanging work-in-progress
  • machine guarding for health & safety purposes
  • repairs / replacement parts for manufacturing equipment

Great news for J&M Fabrications and our clients – we have a new experienced fabricator, John, starting in the next few weeks.

With 20+ years experience under his belt across a broad range of industries and applications John has worked on all sorts of jobs including:

  • agricultural fabrications
  • internal and external buildings work / fabrications including stairways & balustrades
  • safety guards & guarding for a range of applications

As well as skills working with the materials J&M utilize most frequently (stainless steel, mild steel, aluminium) John brings experience and skills in the machining of acrylics and polycarbonates.

John has moved into the area to work with J&M  and we are all looking forward to welcoming him to Melton Mowbray.

During the summer when there are vague mutterings of a soon to be approaching economic recovery it is great to report that J&M Fabrications Ltd continues to run from strength to strength and are in the process of increasing staff and expanding to cater for their full order book!

New machine guarding has been required by a number of clients across online pharmacy the Midlands as a result of recent changes in Health and Safety law. J&M Fabrications have been fabricating the steel work for various bespoke interlocked guarding systems for manufacturing companies in industries such as marine, aero engines and general machining.

Despite the recent economic downturn and the supposed reduction of the UK’s manufacturing base – J & M Fabrications of Melton have been increasingly busy in recent months fabricating mild steel and powder coated Base Frames.

The frames are all bespoke designs and vary in size from 1.5m x 1.5m to 2m x 4m. They are used, primarily, as the structures on which manufacturing and testing equipment are constructed, transported and operated. Industries using the frames built by J& M Fabs include bulb testing and the automotive supply chain.

Many dairy businesses, especially those which are certified by their major clients, perform annual shutdown maintenance and repair cycles. Knowing that the backup and support of their fabrication supplier is scheduled in, allowing for flexible scheduling and prioritisation of jobs, enables the annual maintenance process to proceed much more effectively.

During early January J & M Fabrications have been working with one of their long-standing clients – a Melton Mowbray based dairy production company – delivering fabrication support during their annual shutdown maintenance cycle.

Some fabrication requirements were obvious and planned in advance. Other needs surfaced as the maintenance work progressed, dictating that J&M Fabs were ready and able to turn round new and replacement components in a very short time. Much of this work has been hygienic stainless steel fabrication.

Obviously, all fabricators have to be prepared to deliver support in a breakdown situation. J & M Fabrications Ltd are prepared, with notice, to provide such flexible cover for our clients over extended periods such as annual shutdowns. This service is most effective for clients local to J & M’s Melton Mowbray workshop. Clients further afield do make use of the support but significantly more logistical planning is required in such circumstances.

If your factory uses steel fabricators to provide necessary components, performs annual shut-down maintenance work and is local to Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire it might be worth finding out whether working with J & M Fabrications Ltd could improve the process.
