History of Sheet Metal Work at Fleetwood

The History of FTS Group

The Fleetwood Sheet Metal Company was part of The Fleetwood Trawler Supply (FTS) Group of Companies. The group of companies was set up to service the needs of the fishing industry. Our services were sheet metal work, ships rigging, sail making, chandlery and provisions. The group of companies still offer the same services but since the demise of the local fishing industry our products have had to develop, diversify and move further afield.

Fleetwood Sheet Metal History

After the sad closure of FTS Group in 2011 a new company was formed (Fleetwood Sheet Metal Ltd) securing most of the skills, experience and technology of the old company. We continue to be one of the North West’s most skilled ductwork and fabrication specialists obtaining contracts from many of the area’s most prestigious companies.

The sheet metal work tradesmen employed in the works are fully time served and their reputation for skill, service and craftsmanship has followed our goods throughout the country.
