About Us

Who we are

FEM Ltd is a family owned and run steel fabrication business that became a Ltd company in 2001 having previously started as a man and a van in the late 1980’s. Its original location was in a 2000 sq/ft unit based in Sheffield where it was a 2 man operation. The drive, determination and core values of its founding member Barry Morley are still evident in today’s operation.

From here FEM has steadily grown and is now located in a 30,000sq/ft manufacturing facility and offers a bespoke steel fabrication service to a broad customer base. We employ a range of apprentice trained skilled individuals from platers, welders and fitters who provide a first class service and produce a high quality product. FEM have a continual dialogue and relationship with local colleges to ensure that we are able to offer the next generation of apprentices an opportunity to enter the world of manufacturing.

The range of products produced are diverse and cover sectors from structural fabrications, offshore oil and gas, nuclear and many others. The accreditations in place ensure that there is full traceability of all materials while manufacturing products to a specified standard.

Alongside all of the above FEM prides itself on its open door approach and consider its employees and customers to be most important aspect of its business structure, with this approach to business we have maintained a core staff and loyal customer base. FEM aims to continually improve and has a clear business plan in place so that it always remains ahead of the curve and is able to offer value for money while still remaining competitive.
