About us

CRF (UK) Ltd, Steel Fabrication and Engineering was started in April 1992 by the owner and director of the business - Chris Roberts.

Based on an industrial estate in North Shropshire and with easy access via the M54 to the national motorway network, our business was founded with the prime objective of being able to compete with large scale fabricators on quality and price. We have achieved this objective many times over through low overheads, the use of advanced equipment and well developed engineering know-how.

Depth of Engineering Knowledge

The breadth of engineering knowledge and experience within our talented 28 person team operating out of 17,500 sq ft of workshop space is quite staggering! In the automotive industry alone we have a contact and customer list which would be the envy of anyone in the metal fabrication business worldwide. CRF has manufactured build line fixtures and/or conveyor systems for the construction of the following vehicles: Jaguar, Bentley, Audi, Volkswagen, Skoda, Peugeot, Toyota and Rover.

We also have extensive experience of railway engineering requirements, heavy lifting equipment and systems, commercial transport body pressings, light steel framed buildings and other fabrications for the construction and building industries. CRF's usual niche is in the production of small to medium batch work of one offs to thousands of units - but we are in no way restricted by these parameters.

A philosophy of continuous investment and improvement prevails in our company both in terms of customer satisfaction and staff development. A very low turnover of staff indicates a sound, reliable and dedicated workforce focused on the challenges presented by the numerous industries represented in the company's extensive order book.
