Armstrong Priestley is almost unique within the fire protection industry in that it operates its own fabrication facility. In house fabrication ensures that we have total control over all processes required to provide our clients with a full package and one which is delivered on time from a controlled environment.

The fabrication department works closely with the design and contracts departments to ensure specifications, delivery requirements and deadlines are met. Having our own facility also allows us to be more flexible and react much more quickly to client requirements and changes.

In recent years in order to improve quality and efficiency we have invested heavily in expansion with the purchase of new plant and machinery and our dedicated fabrication team are trained in all disciplines and take great pride in their environment and achievements.

The fabrication facility is supported by our own stores, carrying extensive stocks on all products, which complements our ability to react quickly and ensure that we deliver quality and a reliable service.

All materials are delivered to site using our own fleet of delivery vehicles with the larger loads being delivered by our own 18 tonne HIAB truck; whist smaller loads are delivered on our own pick up vehicle. Having our own transport again supports our philosophy to ensure that we are able to manage and control our client’s requirements and ensure we provide the best possible service.

Our facilities:

  • Over 1700 sq. meters of fabrication space
  • Pipe fabrication of pipework up 450mm diameter
  • Welding to BS EN 287-1
  • 8 meter spray booth where materials can be finished in almost any colour to suit the client’s requirements.
  • Automated “make on“ ensuring all fittings are set to the correct torque setting
