Services Offered by Clarke Lane Engineering

We Offer a Wide Range of Engineering Services

At Clarke Lane, we are passionate about delivering the highest quality sheet metal fabrication and manufacturing services to our clients, all under one roof.

It's often said that, to make something better, you need to simplify it. Manufacturing and engineering processes can seem daunting and complicated. You need to source designers, testers, materials, fabricators, manufacturers, finishers, delivery systems... The list can be unending. We aim to make that process as easy as possible for you.

We offer a full package service, from design and R&D through to materials-sourcing, fabrication, manufacture and final delivery. Clarke Lane can do it all from our headquarters in Southampton. Wherever you are in the country, whatever fabrication and manufacturing you may require, we can deliver the perfect solution.

The following are brief descriptions of some of the services we offer our clients. This list is by no means exhaustive, so if there's anything you need that isn't listed here, please get in touch with us today and we'll give you unbiased and reliable advice on the best way forward.
