PC Fabrications Story

The Founding Chapter: From Solo Fabricator to PC Fabrications

PC Fabrications emerged from a simple, but, decisive moment back in 2005. It was borne out of a personal split and a successful property flip that left me (Paul) with a big discussion to make:

To continue in a comfortable job or to strike out on my own. With some profit in hand and a challenge ahead, I chose the latter.

I informed my then-boss of my Entrepreneurial pursuit, I still remember today the way he leaned back in his chair and laughed at me. He told me running a business was not the same as being good at making things and that I would be back.

His reaction only solidified my resolve.

I promised him, I would never take a single one of his customers (a promise upheld to date) and went my own way.

I started small, with a single fax machine in a compact unit, reaching out to businesses listed in the Yellow Pages. Then, I got my first break!

My Breakthrough and the Start of a decades-long working relationship

A call from Dave and Kim at Signs Express in Leeds. They liked what they saw and were willing to allow me to shoot my first shot. Dave and Kim continue to be a fantastic customer of ours today.

The first six months were a solitary grind. My younger brother was eager to join me in my venture, but I was concerned we didn't have enough work on to sustain to two of us. The next week, the decision was made for me and my Brother quit his job and joined the team. He had a young family to feed so we grafted and exceeded our customer's expectations and slowly but surely word got out and our reputation started to emerge.

Today, PC Fabrications stands as a testament to the value of hands-on skill and a clear vision. The company has grown from those initial, uncertain steps to a team of 15 dedicated employees. Our staff turnover is low, a sign of the strong culture and loyalty we’ve fostered over the years.

Our journey from a fledgling operation to a seasoned manufacturer wasn’t just about business growth, but, also about learning the ropes of a competitive industry and business as a whole.

As my old Boss said, running a business is different to being good at making things.

Through commitment and a focus on quality and efficiency, we have carved out a name for ourselves in the metal fabrication world.

This is PC Fabrications today: a place where challenges are met with expertise, and visions are transformed into tangible products. We've come a long way from that first fax machine, and we're proud of the company we've built and the path we've travelled.
