Fabweld meets demand left by Jones collapse

Published:  06 July, 2011

TELFORD: Fabweld Steel Products, access cover and drainage product supplier reports a rise in enquiries and orders from specifiers, merchants and contractors for its range of recessed covers and associated products after competitor Jones of Oswestry went into administration last month.

Richard Hilton, managing director of Fabweld said the company's products easily substitute for ranges previously available through Jones.

"Jones of Oswestry was a respected name in the steel fabrication industry for more than five decades and we were obviously saddened to hear of the job losses on site," he said.
