Not only can we fully support our own manufacturing needs but we also service many other companies and industries both locally and across the UK including work for the construction, marine, horological, motorsport, motorcycle, medical, defence and rail industries.

Exterior Clocks We offer an extensive range of traditional and modern exterior clocks. clock mechanisms, clock control systems, electronic bell chiming, dial illumination, custom signage and company logos can be specified.

Clock Towers Our standard range of GRP clock towers can be fitted with up to four exterior clocks. Real bronze bells and electronic bell chiming systems can be added for that finishing touch.

Roof Turrets GRP cupolas and roof turrets are manufactured in a variety of styles and can be customised with any of our copper weathervanes, used for ventilation or a source for natural light.

Bezel and projecting clocks Single sided bezel clocks for surface mounting onto a wall or double sided drum clocks fitted with brackets for projecting or hanging from a wall can be manufactured to suit customer requirements.

Pillar Clocks Pillar clocks are free standing external clocks. Standard designs include the two-dial ‘Albert’ and four-dial ‘George’. Custom designs can be made.

GRP Structures GRP structures and fabrications can be manufactured to specific designs and sizes. We have a large range of special moulds, which can be used in numerous ways such as on lift shafts, restaurants, entrances, etc..
