About us

Established in 1966, Accord Engineering has developed into a centre of excellence in sheet metal fabrication specialising in the manufacture of architectural features, façade panels, soffit panels and other components specific to the construction industry.

Working closely with customers at the design stage we are able to drive quality and value from our projects. We are able to fabricate small, bespoke one off designs through to large volume production of components and panels using top of the range CNC controlled equipment.

Our fabrication team ranges from apprentices starting their career to time served experts with nearly forty years experience. The workshop is supported by a design team using three dimensional modelling of components to ensure accuracy in preparation of drawings and creation of fabrication plans.

Recent investment in equipment has seen an Amada brake press, an Amada laser, an Emmegi milling centre and two Emmegi saws added to the workshop equipment list, each item complementing the others in a complete fabrication package.

Accord prides itself in producing high quality components. To support this, the team are working towards accreditation under BS EN 1090 and ISO 9001.
