Three years after the initial establishment of JK Engineering, JK Fabrications Ltd was created. With the start of a new company, this now meant that we could now offer Fabrication as well as Installation and commissioning.

Soon after, to target all the needs of the fabrication process, John made the decision to open a design department to offer the whole package to potential clients, one of the first of its kind within the industry in Northern Ireland.

Our first premises was a rented unit on the Rathfriland Road, Newry, this made way for JK Fabrications Ltd to put our name on the map by upscaling our production.

With demand continuing to grow, the Company made the move to a bigger premise within the Carnbane Business Park on the outskirts of Newry. As a young company, we were now showing our ambition by settling into a 35,000sq ft workshop.

With the company’s continued growth we started to grow out of our current premise, therefore we acquired an adjacent site, thus expanding to 50000sq ft of internal workshop area and 2 acres of external holding and storage area.
