About Us

Ladbrook Engineering & Manufacturing was established in South London in 1936 moving to Norfolk in 1947, and is still privately owned by the founding family.

For many years the core business was solely Press Tool making and Presswork, servicing industries such as armaments, furniture and building hardware, electrical and electronics, auto accessories, horticultural buildings and other niche markets.

From 1990 Ladbrook diversified into other processes and markets. Using their experience and expertise in traditional production techniques as a platform, Ladbrook are uniquely placed to provide support to businesses founded on both the traditional and the modern. The partnerships we develop with our clients enable them to access these exciting new developments in metal working technologies.
