Forging, Bending & Fabrication Services

Brooks Forgings Ltd, established in 1960, is a leading UK forge producing Forged, Fabricated and Machined components.

Offering forging, machining, and fabrication to our customers eliminate the reliance on sub-contractors. This not only ensures full traceability and quality of components but also improves lead times.

By having a rotational method of production components can move onto the next process, machining for example, whilst the batch quantity is still being forged.

With our extensive in-house manufacturing capabilities we are able to produce standards and specials to suit customer-specific requirements.
