Our History


We started out as family-managed Birmingham roofers with a focus on reliability, value, and quality craftsmanship. The business rapidly expanded as we gained a reputation for expertise in the field. It wasn’t long before we opened our own manufacturing facility to answer the demands of our customers.

P&H Fabrications has allowed us to swiftly scale up without impacting the speed and quality of our service offering, streamlining solutions for clients while establishing our position as market leaders. In the past decade alone, our turnover has increased more than three-fold to the tune of 10 million – a testament to our comprehensive yet flexible service and commitment to quality craftsmanship.
