A&R have more than thirty years’ experience in the sheet metal fabrication market.

Their services include all aspects of the manufacturing process. From an initial idea or specification, we work with you to take it through to completion and delivery.

Due to our extensive range of machines and tooling, much of which is custom, A&R can manufacture sheet metal products from materials ranging between 0.3mm to 5.0mm thick. This is especially relevant in relation to our presswork range where custom parts can be manufactured in bulk quantities at high speed and with great accuracy.
