Rank Engineering was founded in 1994 by the present owners and directors Heather and Graham Richmond. The company was established to offer industry leading, quality assured, structural steelwork and metal fabrication services. We have always sought to expand our experience and services to include different industries as well as the latest materials, skills and technologies. Initially based on Netham Rd it has continued to expand and develop over the years and now occupies a sizeable factory warehouse on the Barton Hill Industrial Estate. We operate a full manufacturing and production facility including state of the art equipment and an expert workforce.
Recently, the Company has invested vast sums in updating its comprehensive facilities, with the addition of the latest equipment such as:
- £25000 on a CNC Plasma Table fitted with a Hypertherm MaxPro 200 Cutting System, capable of cutting profiles up to 40mm thick.
- £36000 on a 3M/6mm Morgan Rushworth Guillotine.
- £40000 on a new fleet of VW motors including a Flatbed and a Transporter.
Although Rank Engineering is still very much a family run business, it now boasts a highly skilled and qualified workforce, whose long-standing commitment and professionalism have contributed towards its respectable reputation and ample market share evident today.
Rank Engineering prides itself on its ability to take on a wide variety of metal fabrication projects. We always aim for a quick turnaround on projects with metalwork produced to a very high specification. In a recent survey, conducted on our customers, 100% declared that, in comparison to the quality of the work carried out by other manufacturing companies, ours was ‘Constantly Good’.
Quality and Control:
At Rank Engineering, we continually conduct internal reviews and implement constructive controls to ensure quality assurance and improve our processes for optimised, operational success. The training and development of our accomplished workforce features profoundly in our organisational structure, as does the administration of our Health and Safety policies and procedures.
Our long-standing commitment to quality and control ensures that, we operate consistently within the stringent, regulatory and legislative framework required today and is demonstrated, by our continual achievement of CE Accreditation over the years.
We pride ourselves in managing and delivering fabrication solutions for our customers by offering in-house, expert and technical advice on a collaborative basis to design, develop, review and adapt ideas and production requirements. Our customers trust us to listen to fully understand their operational needs, resulting in professional and successful, end to end, project management from initial design, through manufacture, to final installation.
