Kellwood Engineering is a small to middle-sized mixed fabrication and machine shop. Our unique selling point is that we carry out both of those engineering disciplines to a high standard. This creates a flow of challenging and varied jobs. If our standards aren't the best, there is no reason for customers to use us. Founded in 1985 we are well established with a broad and varied customer base. Having continuously invested in up-to-date machinery, we are well equipped. As sub-contract engineers who aspire to ever more technical work, our constant challenge is to meet the expectation of our customers; that we can do things which are new to us without missing a beat. You, and the team with which you will work, are key to making customers want to return.
