Local steel fabrication manufacturer, Custom Metal Products moves forward to bigger opportunities.

One of our local SME steel manufacturing companies, Custom Metal Products, has moved into larger premises on the Eastwood Trading Estate offering the engineering and
construction industry a larger more efficient service for the all essential BS1090 & BS3834 CE accredited steelwork. They not only offer mild steel CE manufactured bespoke goods for
their customers, but they are one of the few companies in Rotherham and the surrounding area to offer CE accredited manufactured bespoke fabrications in stainless steel.

The Managing Director, Howard Hughes said “we are looking forward to the future, with all businesses at the moment, it’s hard work but we believe the larger premises with 10 tonne cranage will enable us to offer a better service and create more jobs for the area; with the stainless accreditation we will be able to target markets that are not available to others”.

The steel industry has gone through some major changes in the past 15 months with all steel fabricators manufacturing steelwork with a ‘consequence’ having to work to the new BS1090 & BS3834 CE regulations.

Since July 2014 it became a criminal offence to carry out ce approved fabrication works without the relevant CE accreditation. Should any company carry out fabrications post this date without CE approval, all issued materials can be recalled and the company excluded from operating until the relevant CE standards are achieved. Buyers,Designers and Specifiers need to be aware of the new requirements.
