SMF Fabrications

About Smith Metal Fabrications

Established in Newhaven, East Sussex, by four brothers in 1974, Smith Metal Fabrications has gone from strength to strength.

From strength to strength

In the early days, SMF concentrated on fabricating and welding of steel frames, furnaces and fire escapes. Over time, the company developed, purchasing new machinery. This allowed SMF to expand more into sheet metal work, bespoke projects and prototyping in stainless steel, mild steel and aluminium products such as stainless steel enclosures, handrails and shop-fittings. In 1990, a large medical equipment contract was obtained allowing Smith Metal Fabrications and a local sub-contract machine shop, AEP Precision Engineering, to form a lasting alliance.
