Company Profile

We have an impressive 116 years of history, Teesside based and privately owned fabricators, at Francis Brown Ltd (FBL) we are proud of our engineering heritage.

FBL has provided fabrication, engineering and project management expertise to the oil & gas, subsea, chemical, rail, construction and general sectors for some years and enjoys a reputation for being a solution orientated, collaborative supplier that puts the success of ‘the project’ as it’s priority.

To that list they have emphatically added the renewables sector! Our offshore wind, tidal and waste to energy experience is vast.

In the words of Jamie Brown, the great grandson of the company’s founder “the partnership approach to projects is a fundamental aspect of our business philosophy. It is our opinion that it has been a key feature in the relationships we have built in acquiring and executing contracts for significant clients in the Renewables sector such as Alstom (GE), ORE Catapult, SMD, BiFab, Atlantis Resources & Scotrenewables (Orbital) to name a few. I am a firm believer that our determination to overcome any trials that demanding specifications, practical complexities and challenging schedules can throw up is a significant factor in client satisfaction and retention”.

At FBL provide quality assurance through ISO 9001, ISO 3834 and ISO 1090 Ex Class3 and maximise the use of reliable, efficient techniques such as Submerged Arc Welding and encourage a proactive approach to ‘engineering out’ costs.

There is recognition throughout the company that evolving to meet the ever-changing needs of a new, sophisticated and diverse market place requires continuous improvement in order to retain its position in the industry and that is and why FBL put investment into safety, training, equipment and facilities, front and centre of it’s strategy for the foreseeable future.
