Our dedicated and expert design team will work with you throughout your project, ensuring that your needs are met every step of the way: from planning and structural calculation to drawings, conception and completion.

Using the latest technology, we can design structural steelwork for any size of building. All our steelwork, whether shotblasted, painted or galvanised, conforms to the British Standards BS 5950 and BS EN ISO 1461.


fabriaction specialists


We are leaders in designing and constructing purpose-built buildings, and have successfully completed countless projects across the UK. Below are two recently finished jobs.

One reason why customers return to us again and again is our ability to adapt to their needs. Drawing on our vast experience and significant resource, we can solve problems by providing design and construction solutions tailored to individual requirements.

This bespoke approach in action. Steelwork needed to be adapted to accommodate the installation of a 180 tonne silo. We removed a section of roof and replaced it with a new roof area manufactured to high-level specifications, then erected this to house the silo.

Special RequirementsChamber Dryer

Here’s an example of one of our special projects: providing manufacturing and site installation resources for the manufacture of this Chamber Dryer in a brick works tile-making plant.

We added ducting to other parts of the plant as part of an expansion programme, and played a key role in designing and installing these specialised parts into confined areas. We made the dryer, the ducting, the ladders and the platforms at our factory in Tamworth, and also designed and manufactured the new brick drying cars.

As a result of our reliability and results-driven work, we were able to build up a strong relationship with the operators. We still play a large part in the upkeep of the plant and contribute input to its development and expansion planning.


We have worked on a wide variety of commercial ventures throughout the UK. Here is a small selection of our work.

At Harris Manufacturing, we specialise in designing, constructing and installing a wide range of purpose-built items. In each case, we use the highest standard of materials and work closely with our clients to achieve the results they want.
