Chris Biggs Engineering Ltd was established in 1969 as a solo effort, helping friends and family with small jobs and over 50+ years later the company has grown to represent a reliable and reputable name in the South West for 'delivering excellence in steel'.


Where it all started

Where better to start ‘Chris Biggs Engineering’ than in the heart of one of the country’s most spectacular agricultural and marine hot spots………Cornwall.

Working from his family farm in Fowey in the South East of Cornwall, Chris and his father, originally from the farming community, went about helping local people and businesses with a wide variety of small steel fabricating jobs.  This lead to Chris learning his craft and building up a local reputation as the ‘man that can’.

 ‘ excellent customer service is of paramount importance’

As the years rolled by, Chris naturally had to make a continual investment in tools and machinery to meet each challenge, but with his family involvement in local farming and past-times enjoying sailing on the Fowey River and playing Rugby, his breadth of knowledge took him to expert levels with steel fabricating in the agriculture & marine fraternity, but also a feared opponent on the rugby pitch.

Chris’s family love of rugby is on display when he offered some land for all the locals to enjoy and today, many people benefit from the enjoyment of watching and playing in the official Lankelly-Fowey Rugby Club.

With further hard work and dedication, further investment in machines, tools and talented professionals, Chris Biggs Engineering Ltd has successfully grown into one of the largest independent steel fabricators in the South West servicing the construction, agriculture, residential and marine sectors.






Acknowledging that 21st-century business requires a different set of skill sets than that of 1969, we are now trading on a wider demographic,  servicing our very loyal and ever-expanding South West customer base, the key to our continued success is that we have always tried to keep excellent customer service of paramount importance,  along with a faithful Cornish smile.

Whilst we remain as competitive as ever on delivering a diverse range of steel excellence across a broad range, we are confident of the products we produce by our qualified craftsman and this promise is backed by substantial warranty’s.
