Established in 1978, FSM has over 45 years’ experience in sheet metal & section fabrication, including the design and manufacture of access control equipment and security doors & gates. As well as supplying equipment to commercial & industrial markets, we manufacture and install security doors and gates for the public sector & construction industries and manufacture access control equipment for OEMs, security product suppliers & security installers.

Over the years, our commitment to high quality, customer service and competitiveness has given FSM the edge to strive and grow in a fast-moving economic environment. We offer a comprehensive service for general sub-contract sheet metal fabrication and the security door and access control industries.

Our Managing Director, Colin Fellows, has continued to build the company his father created by maintaining focus on the quality of our products and services, delivering on our commitment to our customers and providing the competitive edge that keeps us ahead in the market. Investment in new technologies and processes has also been an integral part in driving FSM forwards, such as the introduction of Lean manufacturing.

“The world is constantly changing and customer requirements are getting more demanding.   To stay competitive and current, you have to change with the times and respond quickly.   The adoption of lean principles combined with a flexible, well trained workforce has contributed significantly to our success and the way our customers view us.  If we can challenge what we do, drive continuous improvement in our methods and technology and thereby reduce waste and cost then our customers will benefit and keep coming back.  Everything we do should be to keep our customers happy.” – Colin Fellows
