Innovation

It's not new manufacturing techniques, new products or our real time technology that we call innovative. Real innovation comes in the shape of our people, their ideas, there abilities along with our products and technology.

MANUFACTURING PROCESS DESIGN

We constantly look at ways as a company of making things more streamlined using continuous improvement techniques, whether it is in the enhancement of the product itself, or the way in which it is manufactured. We are able to achieve this by investing in the latest technology and machinery.

STATE OF THE ART

Located at Brighouse, West Yorkshire. Excellent geographic location to service the UK and the World from major ports. State of the art production facilities with laser levelled floors, total ergonomic and production flow layout, high floor to ceiling height and full internal crane support. Everything fully controllable on one site.

IN HOUSE

Our Bespoke Technology enables an ‘all in one’ integrated project management, scheduling, call-off, production and delivery system which is fully flexible and automated. This MIS is designed and maintained in house which gives us the flexibility to adapt quickly to the customer and company’s needs which are constantly changing, resulting in optimum efficiency combined with supply chain integration and scheduling.

PRODUCT EXTENSION STRATEGIES

Using the latest technical advances in steel substrate yield, chemical composition and new sustainable coating types in specific end use combinations ensures our product portfolio is one of the broadest in the UK today and fully expandable.

STICK TO 'CORE COMPETENCIES'

Knowing that our core business is steel profile design and manufacture means buying steel at the right time and right price and right specification. Roll-forming it to specification through to delivery. All this is managed in a centralised project and manufacturing system. When required we use Strategic Alliances to undertake “non-core” performing activities to achieve the perfect end results.

SUPPLY CHAIN & CHOICE

Our choice of coatings, colours, substrates and profiles is one of our key differentiators – offering a combination of profile and material that is unrivalled in the industry. If you need a product that is bespoke to you then our team will work closely with you to produce a perfect solution.

PERSONAL TOUCH

We are a family run business that believes that our customers, suppliers and employees must communicate as one. Service and customer interaction is core to Firth Steels and that has not changed since the day we started. Knowing when paperwork and systems are excellent in running a business, but when to use face to face interaction is key. This is the most important aspect to win trust and confidence.
