Conveyors and Handling Systems

Hitherbest excels at the long and rolled fabrications required by businesses specialising in handling systems.

Conveyor systems and other handling equipment (mechanical, electrical and hydraulic) can be found embedded in factories, warehouses, quarries and other industrial sites across the country, as a safe, reliable and cost-effective means of moving material. They are integral to the efficient manufacture and delivery of all manner of goods and services.

Hitherbest has fabricated components of conveyor systems for a number of customers for decades – either for use within their own premises or as part of large installations destined for the agricultural, maritime, telecoms, shell room, quarrying, automotive and recycling sectors, to name but a few.

Specialising in long and rolled fabrications

Hitherbest has equipment with the ability to fold sheet metal that measures up to 4m in length. We also have a staff member who specialises in the production of rolled fabrications, making us ideally suited to the production of curved conveyor system components.

We understand that these heavy-duty systems represent a significant investment for the end user and hence any fabricated sheet metal components must be robust and long-lasting. In such instances, it pays to partner with a fabricator with a reputation for quality. As you would expect, Hitherbest is BSI-certified to ISO 9001:2015 and has an enviably low customer rejection rate (< 0.001%).

If you require fabricated sheet metal for an industrial conveyor system, whether a bespoke unit or a production run, why not give us a call on 01952 632100 or email We would be happy to discuss your requirements.
