FB Fabrications

Producers of  high-quality steel fire pits and barbeques.

FB Fabrications was born in February 2002 when Clive Ford and Robert Blakely decided it was time to start their own business. Between them, they had over 60 years experience of fabrication and welding, gained from working in the marine and engineering industries. From 2002 until 2016 FB Fabrications were based at John Samuel Whites Industrial Estate in Cowes. At their peak, they employed 18 staff and were producing aluminium wind turbine support vessels for South Boats IOW. However, in January 2016 a fire engulfed the whole site. FB Fabrications were forced to downsize, restructure the company and move to new premises in Seaview Road, Cowes, a move that was made easier by FB Fabrications customers and suppliers returning the loyalty shown to them in previous years.

Covid19 has made a huge impact on every business. Supplies of Personal Protection Equipment dried up completely at one point, raw materials have not only been difficult to obtain but the prices are ever increasing and through it all, businesses have been slowly watching their customer base decrease. It's not been a good time for anybody!

FB Fabrications are now moving more into producing items for the home and garden market and we have had a lot of interest in our high-quality steel fire pits and barbeques.   Over the coming months and years we aim to increase and broaden our range of products to meet our customers requirements.
