Littlehampton Welding Limited are specialists in architectural and structural metalwork carrying out works to Execution Class 2 with the capability of carrying out works to Execution Class 3. With over thirty years experience we offer a complete service from concept through to on-site installation; taking in design, fabrication and finishing. We undertake a wide range of projects for a variety of clients such as architects, designers and artists. Our work includes staircases, balustrades and bridges as well as an increasing number of large scale sculptures and design pieces.

With the wealth of knowledge we have gained over the years we can offer our input at the initial stages of any proposal. This means we can suggest design alternatives where appropriate; which can not only be cost effective but also help with project programming due to speedier drawing approval. Such early involvement with all parties has helped multi-million pound contracts to be successfully delivered within budget and on time; or even ahead of schedule.

Fabrications are executed completely in-house at our extensive premises where we can utilize a diverse array of techniques; particularly manual metal arc welding in addition to TIG, MIG and submerged arc welding. As well as steel, in all it’s forms, we can incorporate a mix of metals and non-metallic materials such as glass and wood. And we can also accomplish a wide selection of surface finishes too.

The company started life as Littlehampton Welding Services more than forty years ago. We were later reformed as Littlehampton Welding Ltd under the direction of Bill Tustin who for 35 years was the long standing Managing Director before becoming Chairman. The day to day running of the company is now in the hands of 2 directors who have all been life long employees of the company, giving them a sound knowledge of the industry. They in turn head up a highly trained work force of around 80 who’s skills have been enhanced by cumulative years of experience due to a very low turnover of staff. The successful running of the company has been attested through external audits carried out annually by numerous accreditation bodies including Achilles, CHAS and SAFEcontractor.

Over the years we have worked on an ever increasing variety of contracts from balustrades, staircases and bridges through to large scale sculptures and even a whole café. And in the process we have successfully risen to meet the growing complexity of modern day steel construction.

This means that as well as having an enviable reputation within the industry itself we have also gained the respect of the world renowned architects, designers and artists with whom we have collaborated. This well earned position has been acknowledged by the numerous annual awards we have received; notably from RIBA and Structural Steel Design Awards.
