Sourcing quality steel fabrications on short lead times is a challenge for any construction or engineering project. To provide customers with a streamlined option, bespoke engineering business KMT supplies UKCA standard brackets, flanges and other structural elements suitable for farm, residential and commercial buildings.
State-of-the-art fabrication services
“We have state-of-the-art machinery including a high-speed laser cutter and a 320-ton press brake, which means we can offer a quick service that caters for projects with short lead times for fabrications,” says Adrian Degg, Group Engineering Director at KMT. “This is especially beneficial for construction, where any delay risks the project schedule. To save site managers a potential headache, we have been fabricating steelwork for low consequence structures for several years now.”
KMT provides UKCA structural steelwork accredited to BS EN 1090 Execution Class 2. This ensures suitability for farm, residential and commercial developments – encompassing most construction projects. Typical applications include supporting elements for stairways and access walkways.
As a turnkey provider of engineering services to industry, KMT has extensive workshop capacity. The laser cutter’s ability to quickly cut 3000 mm x 1500 mm sheets of stainless and mild steel up to 25 mm thick, combined with the large press brake, allows KMT to offer faster turnaround times than traditional fabricators. Additional services such as welding, assembly, and testing ensure a complete approach.
Quality delivered in quantity
“With our experience and advanced machinery, we can meet orders of any quantity. Whether a few fabrications are needed for a single stairway, or hundreds to support a large housing development – we’re totally flexible,” Adrian explains.
A high level of automation matched with the skills of KMT’s experienced fabricators ensures repeatable quality for even the most complex elements. Custom designs can be easily accommodated, allowing an optimum solution to be achieved. A proven track-record delivering fabrications to construction, rail and automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) highlights KMT’s high levels of quality control and assurance.
Building a reliable service
The centrally located KMT headquarters in Staffordshire means a robust and responsive supply chain for any UK customer. Consequently, short lead times are combined with reliable delivery, both highly beneficial for meeting construction schedules.
“Sometimes, even sourcing a small structural element can cause costly, unforeseen delays to a construction project. Our service is specifically designed to avoid this, and we specialise in delivering under pressure,” Adrian adds.
