Had-Fab contributed to the iconic Queensferry Crossing with the manufacture and installation of 288 sets of Anti-Vandal Pipes. This gave Had-Fab another opportunity to demonstrate our fabrication capability outwith our core sectors of Power and Rail. We always strive to push our capability as far as we can, and to deliver the parts for such a high profile project gives us great satisfaction.
Work has commenced on our exciting new covered fabrication facility at our Penston site on the Macmerry Industrial Estate in East Lothian. Once complete in Autumn 2017, the new facility will add an extra 45,000 Sq. ft. of fabrication space. This extra space will help us to improve further on the service we offer our customers by enabling us to increase capacity and improve efficiency, which in turn will help us drive down price and lead time.
