About Kempston Limited – Sheet Metal Done The Quality Way

Kempston Ltd is a one-stop-shop for sheet metal fabrication, delivering CAD/CAM design, laser metal cutting, folding, welding, powder coating, painting – in fact all the expertise, processes and materials you need to turn your initial drawings into quality, well manufactured sheet metal components.

We work with mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium, brass and Zintec, and if you don’t need a full end-to-end fabrication service we can provide cost-effective subcontracting for specific manufacturing stages such as custom laser cutting.

Whichever approach suits you best, our same high standards of quality, rapid turnaround, and cost-effectiveness always apply.

Why We’re Different

Our innovation

We’ve consistently acquired the latest technology to keep our productivity high, our lead times short, and our operations cost-effective for our customers.

Our investment in our Amada Fiber Laser is just one recent example. We’ve teamed it with a 21-tonne autoloader, creating a service that has permanently huge capacity for both end-to-end sheet metal fabrication and subcontracted jobs, and can run automatically 24/7.

Our Experience

We have fifty years of experience in delivering end-to-end sheet metal fabrication and subcontracted services to international clients, in sectors as diverse as electronics, medicine, healthcare instruments, audio, automotive, and many more.

Our People

We invest in our people, so they’re with us (and our customers) for the long haul.

Our Directors alone have dedicated over 120 years to Kempston Ltd. Having each worked their way up through the business, they have unrivalled knowledge of what is involved in delivering cost-effective quality and value to our customers.

Our technicians and metalworkers undergo constantly updated, vendor-accredited training in the use of the innovative technologies we bring into the business.

Because we train, educate and value our people, our staff turnover is extremely low. Some 60% of our employees have been with us for between 10 and 30 years or more, so our customers benefit from highly engaged service, from specialists who build up a thorough understanding of their needs over time.

Our Customer Loyalty

Our track record is proven – and it shows. Some 90% of our business is from repeat customers, who trust our people, processes, and technology to deliver time and time again.

Our Standards

Continuous improvement of our people, our processes and our business is at the heart of our culture. We’ve invested heavily to ensure not only statutory and regulatory compliance, but also conscientious and ethical ways of doing business.

We are proud to be registered for UKAS ISO 9001 (Quality) and ISO 14001 (Environment) standards, and to be a member of the British Safety Council.

We also deliver value back into the business community through our Chambers of Commerce and Federation of Small Businesses memberships.

Our Capacity, Flexibility and Economy

Thanks to our investment in innovative technologies, we have not only expanded the range of sheet metal fabrication services we offer, but increased our output capacity at lower cost to our customers.

Yet at the same time, we remain flexible.

We can offer an end-to-end sheet metal fabrication service, or you can subcontract processes to us.

We can deliver the finished components to their destination using our own low-emission, economical vehicles (no expensive hauliers’ fees!), or you can collect them yourself.

We can source materials for you, using our significant buying power to guarantee a favourable price, or you can supply them to us.
