August 2011: New contract leads to expansion of workshop facilities......
Metalcraft Cornwall has seen a significant
increase in customer base and workload over the past year. The requirement to increase fabrication capacity was confirmed
on the securing of a new long term supply contract with A&P Group company Marine Designs Ltd who specialise in the supply
of marine access solutions for commercial clients.
Our fabrications for Marine Designs Ltd are destined for port locations
across the UK; recent projects that Metalcraft has provided fabricated steelwork for include the London Array and Barrow Offshore
The new building is conveniently situated next to our existing facilities on Kernick Industrial Estate, and
will provide an extra 3,000sq ft of fabrication space along with offices and further yard space. Moving our main operations
to this workshop will allow us to expand our manufacturing capabilities and our workforce, the purchase of some new
machinery is in the pipeline.With our two
fabrication workshops, metal finishing services next door and excellent transport links Metalcraft Cornwall is ideally suited
for the fabrication of steel products for distribution across the UK and internationally.
11: Penryn's Kernick Road Footbridge, locally known as the 'Blue Bridge' has had a makeover. CORMAC
were the projects main contractors and Metalcraft, along with Blast Clean & Coatings Ltd undertook the refurbishment.
The 38 m /125 ft bridge, weighing over 22 tonnes was removed from site for 6 weeks for a full overhaul. Metalcraft
stripped the bridge, made repairs and alterations to the main structure, replaced all galvanized side and roof panels
and replaced fixings throughout before re-installation. The bridge was back in position on the first of three date options,
bringing the project in two weeks ahead of schedule and under budget. http://www.justgiving.com/MetalcraftCornwall

Cornwall has chosen to support the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and will be starting fund-raising with Jenny

teams of lifeguards and lifeboat crew provide 24hr 'volunteer' support around our coast, saving lives at
sea, are more than worthy of our support.
