Fabrication services for businesses in Norfolk and Suffolk

Padgate Fabrications is run by a team of engineers dedicated to providing the best service. This engineering background means we’re ready to solve a whole range of fabrications challenges, or simply follow a complex plan to build to your exact requirements. It also means that we won’t let anything leave our workshop unless it’s exactly right.

Our workshop is based just outside Norwich. We are happy to work with clients across Norfolk, and further afield. For some projects, an on-site visit is necessary. On other occasions, we can work from your own measurements and photos just as effectively.

Padgate Fabrications is part of Padgate Services. Padgate Services is a professional engineering company offering a range of electrical and mechanical engineering services. As specialists in lean manufacturing, Padgate Services has helped many businesses improve their efficiency and save money by streamlining their engineering and maintenance approaches.

The Padgate Services side of the business has been operating since 2013. During that time, we’ve always undertaken fabrication work. The fabrications side has grown in size, resulting in our decision to establish Padgate Fabrications, with a dedicated team to take care of this work.
