We work closely with our light infrastructure clients to manufacture their products and sub-assemblies. We arrange all processes, including powder coating and hot dip galvanizing.


At CEL, we specialise in bringing manufacturing processes closer to our clients. We provide our DESIGN + MANUFACTURE services for the light infrastructure sector in mostly UK-based projects. 

We most often work with large contractors, and civil engineering companies and landscape architects to convert their designs into final products.  We first prepare a full set of CAD drawings for customer review, comment and approval.  We then prepare engineering drawings and manufacture the agreed assemblies and in our 16,000ft2 factory.

Our team of specialist welders are able to weld mild steel, stainless steel and aluminium as thin as 0.7mm and in excess of 16mm, allowing us to take on complex, bespoke projects and provide the excellent quality of products and levels of service that we pride ourselves on. Plus, our ISO 9001 and internal standards ensure the final fabrications match the agreed CAD drawings


We would wholeheartedly recommend Contracts Engineering as the service is always a cut above the rest. They have delivered over 25 projects with us, many of which use their DESIGN + MANUFACTURE service.

We fabricate thousands of stainless steel bollards a year and have built a temporary, moveable production line to accommodate the medium batch volume manufacture


The Contracts Engineering Process

As well as our ISO quality standards, we also have our own internal processes for ensuring quality assurance such as our ‘on-time and in-full’ approach, which ensures that we deliver every single project to the best of our ability, on time. Use of advanced and sophisticated technology and systems helps us to achieve our goals for quality control and efficiency, giving our team members complete production management visibility and precise results every time.

We integrate seamlessly into our clients’ existing processes and supply chains to enable us to work closely with our customers and build strong, long-term relationships as a valued supplier.
