Gates, Preston, Railings, Preston, Metalwork, Preston

You dream it, we’ll create it – that’s the motto of metal craftsman Fred Smith. Big or small, intricate or simple, for a garden, school, home, business or council, his firm has the skills to cope.

As well as creating it, they’ll visit your home or business to repair it – a growing part of their business.

Friendly Fred. says: “We will make anything you want. If people come to me with a picture, we love to recreate it. I’ve got good workers who I can rely on. We can also come to your home or factory and do repairs on-site, whether that’s welding or taking away your rusted gate or railings to refurbish.”

Father-of-two Fred learned his trade at Coupe Foundry, Walton-le-Dale, before starting the business in Penwortham after buying it eight years ago. They have just moved premises to expand and Fred’s wife, Tracy, an accountant, has joined full-time to assist that.

FJ Fabrications, with eight staff, can respond quickly to requests for help – and offer a good price. “We keep our prices competitive with one-man bands,” adds Tracy. “We like people to recommend us and no job is too small. We’ll do anything from 9-metre commercial gates to church candlesticks!”

Fred, 49, who offers a design service if required, believes in the personal touch and visits clients to measure and estimate.

His work is half domestic and half commercial, with clients including Fulwood Barracks, Lancashire County Council  and Redrow at Buckshaw Village.

He works in steel, wrought iron and stainless steel, often preferred for internal home jobs such as staircases or balconies. Gates and railings are a mainstay, with automated gates an option.

FJ Fabrications has a five-star rating in the county council Safe Trader scheme, and has won a customer satisfaction award for the third year.  

Fred, seen with FJ Fabrications’ newly qualified apprentice, Victoria Judge-Nuttall, always aims to leave behind a happy client. See the website for more information.

Harry Joyce of Shrewsbury

I worked for Fred for a while and he helped me out no end. He is so honest and genuine and given a chance I would go back now. When he says his work is good, believe me, it's good I can testify to that. His workforce is second to none.
