J. Sailer Fabrications offer an extensive range of bespoke designing and manufacturing services, predominantly for the architecture and art and design sectors.
Established in 2015, we became a limited company in May 2019. Company director Johannes Sailer originally trained in Fine Art, Sculpture in Edinburgh, and gained a Master Craftsman Certification in Welding and Fabrication in his native Austria. Johannes has over 20 years’ experience in delivering professional, commercial and artistic projects.
With projects ranging from designing and implementing staircases to a variety of multi- alloy structures and public artworks, we have invested heavily in state of the art machinery enabling us to move into the future with confidence whilst maintaining the traditional skills of the trade.
We are fully equipped to provide in- house services, such as project design, CNC plasma cutting, surface conditioning, alongside general fabrication machinery for welding, milling and turning, press-braking and tube bending.
Clients can have the confidence in the fact that we have been accredited with the rigorous EN1090-1 Exc.2 Standard awarded by the CfA.
