Combining bespoke and standard modular components often provides the most cost-effective and flexible solutions for our customers.

One of the key differentiators in our service offering is our manufacturing facility. We design, develop and manufacture our entire range of shoring and structural support equipment in-house, providing in-depth product knowledge and flexibility to meet demand.

We have the ability to undertake bespoke manufacture to meet customer requirements which provides the flexibility that unusual and complex schemes often demand.

Our fully qualified team of experienced welders and fabricators work alongside our engineering designers and, through strict adherence to quality procedures for product development and manufacturing can provide bespoke products ranging from straightforward items such as shear stops and infill panels, to more complicated and unusual items such as gallows support brackets, made to measure articulated beams and specialised connection details.

Bespoke manufacture plays a fundamental role in our ability to deliver the service offered by our Major Projects Division. Combining bespoke and standard modular components often provides the most cost effective and flexible solutions for our customers.

This capability also enables MGF to respond at very short notice to our customer’s requirements minimising the potential for costly delays.
