Bespoke metal fabrication

Aldermans are experienced metal fabricators, designing and creating all kinds of bespoke metal parts, structures and assemblies at our Plymouth factory, for clients across the UK.

With a wide array of technologies in-house, we offer one of the most comprehensive, end-to-end contract metal fabrication facilities in the South West. 

Our in-house metal fabrication services include…

Product design 

Our in-house designers take even the roughest of ideas and create 3D models & production drawings, turning your ideas into reality.

CNC turning and milling

Our two automatic bar-fed lathes can turn metal bar and even plastic.  Plus, we offer milling with our Vertical Machining Centre and Turret Mills.

CNC laser cutting

We invested in the best-in-class CNC laser cutting machines, which handle 20mm thick material and run lights-out for quick turnaround.

CNC punching

We have a CNC turret punch and a punch-laser combination machine to efficiently create holes in metal parts up to 6mm thick.  Both can run lights-out, too.

Bending, forming, folding

We have a suite of power presses, press brakes and a horizontal press; plus we manufacture bespoke press tooling.


We offer MIG and TIG, stud and spot welding, plus brazing, to tight tolerances, and we manufacture our own welding jigs.

Powder coating

With our in-house powder coating service we offer a myriad of styles, colours and textures for a perfect finish.

Assembly and kitting

Outsourcing product assembly to us saves our clients time and money, while giving the assurance of accurate, on-time delivery.
