Fabrication

JB Engineering (Hatton) Ltd is a prime contractor who specialise in the welding and fabrication of products and their installation.

We have the skills and equipment to work with heavy duty hardened steel down to light gauge stainless steel. This flexibility allows us to work in a wide variety of industrial sectors, including defence, food, transport, mining, water treatment and petrochemical.

'The majority of our work is bespoke and has been designed to meet individual customer                requirements.'

The fabrication department is led by our engineering director, who is supported by lead fabrication roles, fabricators, semi-skilled and labourers. 

JB Engineering welding processes include: M.I.G.  - metal inert gas; T.I.G.  - tungsten inert gas; M.M.A.  - manual metal arc; and M.A.G.  - metal active gas.

  • Rapid response and a company-wide focus on meeting our customer deadlines.
  • We visit customer sites to get the correct job specification and plan the job. If required these visits continue through the whole of the fabrication job or project. 
  • At JB Engineering we make a wide range of products, which include pipework, ducting, stairways and platforms. 
  • We have a reliable support network of contractors, who cover the following industry services: powder coating; galvanizing; turning; milling; mobile crane for heavy industrial lifts; lifting equipment testing (for beams); electrical installations (for machinery); and metal suppliers.

Overhauling machinery is an option that we offer if we think this direction is cost effective and practical. For example, we completed a machine overhaul at a local concrete production company that increased productivity by 70%.
We can also fit and maintain machine bearings.
