Steve N

Production Manager; Traka Assa Abloy

We have used Ashland Engineering since around 2011 for a variety of design-and-make projects around the factory. Andrew worked closely with us on a number of projects to design and manufacture bespoke items used on our Production Line such as assembly fixtures, bench-extensions, special purpose frames, wheeling-dollies, etc. Parts were delivered in the agreed lead times and the quality of workmanship is good.

Andrew and his company were very helpful in listening to our needs (specs) and delivering the required parts as detailed and on time. Happy with the service provided and would recommend to others looking for a personal, tailored approach to customer service and bespoke parts.

Matt E

Just Plain Good at what they do!

Andrew is very very good and his ability to make something both bespoke and of high quality is second to none, I can't recommend Ashland Engineering enough, local, fast and good value!

Nick C

Fantastic service right from the initial phone call. Discussed with Andrew the modifications i needed and he has done a brilliant job including some previously unseen modifications. The quality of work is excellent and the job was completed very quickly. Would have no reservations in recommending Ashland Engineering.

Andrew D

Outstanding work, seamless, smooth and collaborative all the way through

Extremely pleased with our railings and gate, the whole project from beginning to the end was seamless, collaborative and well executed. I had an idea of what we wanted and Andrew the owner gave me some suggestions which we really liked. He was very articulate and accurate and very attentive, he kept me informed and up to date with progress all throughout and even arranged powder-coating to match our doors and windows as well as arranging for installation which made the process painless. They did a great job and Andrew is very hands on and involved to make sure his customers are happy. He sent me plans and drawings at early stages so I knew what to expect. We are so pleased with the result. I will use this company again without any hesitation. Highly recommended!

Karl E

I have to say that Andrew and the team have been fantastic. I was kept informed of the progress throughout and at each stage of the process. The railings and gate look fantastic and are really smart. I am really pleased with the service and the quality of the installation.

Jill W

From our very first contact through to the end of our project, Ashland Engineering provided excellent service at all times. They did a great job with our design, provided guidance and we couldn’t be more happy with the finished product. We would highly recommend them.

Jon B

Andrew identified the fencing solution we needed by providing a detailed project 3-D model,construction timeframe and quote with full breakdown of materials and labour. Due to the level of detail and honesty Andrew provided, we were happy to proceed and everything went smoothly. Andrew made sure the construction was perfect, particularly with a tricky curve to figure, considerate with noise levels, cleaning up and final finishing. We are very happy and would recommend Andrew to anyone looking for metal fence construction for your home.

Paul N

I am absolutely delighted with my bespoke railings! They made the process really easy, helping me design what I wanted, offering technical and aesthetic advice. Not only do they look great but the quality is outstanding and at a great price too! You can't get better than that. I had a couple of additional requirements after fitting and they couldn't have been more helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending Andrew and his team!

Tom B

Really helpful and providing an excellent service and price for our bespoke metalwork, would recommend. Andrew is a star!!!

Ian R

My customer processes engine components for a prestigious manufacture of high-performance power trains for the motor sport industry. They tasked me with supplying them a dedicated and bespoke wash system for cleaning engine parts for inspection post process.
Realising I was going to need some help with this project I got in touch with Ashland Engineering. Andrew did a brilliant Job of interpreting my concept and finalising the design in his CAD drawings.
The sheet metal fabrication was particularly complicated and required extensive TIG welding. The quality for the workmanship surpassed all expectations and the final product looked fantastic.
It was a proud moment for me to deliver the wash plant to my customer. They were very impressed with their purchase!
I would highly recommend Ashland Engineering and I look forwards to working with them in the future.

Andrew G

I have used Ashland Engineering for several domestic projects where I have required bespoke steel fabrication. This has ranged from steel fence posts and steel railings to the most recent steel framed sliding barn doors. Everytime I deal with Andy he is more than helpful and delivers exactly what I am looking for. With the most recent sliding doors, Andy went above and beyond with the paintwork effect (which was layered in different colours and then sanded to give an aged look). The end result is outstanding. I will not hesitate to use Ashland engineering going forward for any steel fabrication that I need. Highly recommended.

Steve H

We approached Ashland Engineering with a another very difficult project, to assist in the design and construction of bespoke CCTV brackets for West Ashland’s, Milton Keynes, Bluelight Hub, a combined deployment centre of Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue with South Centre Ambulance NHS trust and Thames Valley Police.
Andrew and his team undertook the task with great care and detail together with a professional approach, even during the challenging times of the Covid-19 lock-down. Ashland Engineering made prototypes and templates to ensure the end goal and vision were achieved and millimetre perfect.
Furthermore, I am happy to not only turn to Ashland Engineering for future projects but also recommend them to others for the execution of ideas requiring engineering skills, such as the ones they have displayed during such a challenging time.
They are fast, knowledgeable, and reliable. I highly recommended them.

John F

Fantastic service. Had a bespoke handrail made, great service from beginning to end. Handrail itself came to me and was better than I thought. Would definitely use them again and would recommend to others. Very pleased.

Mark E

A great fabricator and very professional in how he runs his business. I'm very pleased to recommend and will be using again.

James M

Happy to recommend. We worked with Andrew over the course of a couple of months to come up with a solution for one of our key clients with high expectations. This involved remodelling some of our standard equipment to fit to a unique piece of high precision machinery with very little room to do so. He attended site to understand the issue, provided drawings that we could present to the client, and then built and fitted the solution with us. It works brilliantly.

Andrew B

I have used Ashland Engineering for several jobs over the past few years ranging from 50pcs to 250pc deburring and polishing projects. The jobs have been completed perfectly on the agreed times to a high standard with great communication and customer service. I would highly recommend their service.

Mark P

I needed some metal parts for an electromechanical design. Andrew gave advice on the metal to use and was able to produce prototypes directly from my 3D model step files in a little over a week. An excellent service, highly recommended!

Shaz H

Ashland helped us in each phase of our process for our project, right from design input to final completion. They were very patient and helpful and the final product was very high quality and superbly built. We happily recommend Ashland to all friends and family.

Colin J

For many jobs that require high quality, I have used Ashland. They often contribute also to the designs and offer great advice which not only results in a better outcome for me but can also be a more cost effective solution. Highly recommended

Anne B

We have used Ashland Engineering for several years now and found the company very professional in every way. Andrew advises us through the process of design and manufacture and assists when we lack technical knowledge. We can talk through what we need, see a prototype and develop our products to suit whether they are a one off or a larger order. It’s great to have somewhere to turn your ideas into reality.

Sara O

Highly recommend! I had a query which Andrew diligently took care of, gave expert advice and as a novice in the industry, helped me understand what I wanted and needed from my product and the best way to accomplish this. Very happy with the communications from Ashland Engineering.
