We’ve been manufacturing products for the Highways and Street Lighting and Outdoor Power industries on our Somerset premises since 1990. 

The business grew from founder Colin Fisher’s Toolmaking business in 1982, adding wrought iron gates, railings and other products and later including fabrication of sheet steel products – Feeder Pillars.  We moved to Somerset from Erith in Kent to better service our biggest client at the time.  Since that time the business has re-centred itself and now has 4 core product lines:

  • Feeder Pillars
  • Pedestrian Crossing Equipment
  • Brackets for signage and lighting
  • Insulated Groundworking Tools

Here at Fisher & Company we have a well-earned reputation for manufacturing excellent quality and in industry leading fast lead times, especially for Bespoke and Special Feeder Pillars and other Stainless or Mild Steel items.

Added protection where needed from Crittall MW40

Crittall’s Corporate MW40 steel windows can be specified where superior air, wind or water resistance and greater sound attenuation are required.

Offering the same high-quality appearance as the company’s successful Corporate W20 range the MW40 variant can accept glass up to twice the thickness as its stable mate. Either double, or triple glazing up to 32mm thick can be installed with a consequent higher level of thermal or sound insulation.  This is achieved while retaining the same slender steel profile for which Crittall products are renowned thereby ensuring maximum light ingress.

Schöck features in Yorkshire Post redevelopment story

Regeneration across the whole of Leeds is resulting in a major transformation of the city.  And one of the current developments is on the site of the previous headquarters of the Yorkshire Post.   Around eight years ago “Yorkshire’s National Newspaper” moved from its long-standing home to new headquarters a couple of miles across the city.   The previous 4.6 acre site is now a landmark four-phase development; and the immediate first phase will see the construction of an 18-storey residential tower due for completion in early 2021.    The building benefits from extensive river frontage along the River Aire and will provide high-quality one, two and three bedroom apartments, a gym and an eleventh floor sky lounge. The proposal includes shops, resident’s amenity areas and an enhanced river corridor.  Around 242 apartments are anticipated in this first phase and the brick-clad concrete frame building will feature a high number of spacious balconies, also of concrete construction.
