Powell & Co

Steel Fabrication Team

Powell & Co is a family-run business with a dedicated experienced team who are passionate about delivering products and services that are future proof. Our team strive to embrace the latest technological advances in the fabrication of steel working closely with clients to meet the exact specifications.  When it comes to construction, importantly we use our experienced staff, supported by a small works team to undertake a final check to ensure every finer detail is delivered with each build.

Martin Murphy

When it comes to steel Martin Murphy is the specialist in steel. From the ordering of steel, planning, fabricating, and delivery he gets steel to clients.

Martin joined Powell & Co in 2015 when the steel business was acquired by Powell & Co. His role as Steel Fabrication Manager involves managing a team of eight who have state of the art computer-aided machinery for processing steel jobs efficiently within tight time frames to meet construction schedules.

A stand out job was fabricating steel for an arts centre in Cardiff which was the shape of an armadillo and consisted of some unusual shapes of steelwork. It is great to see the finished steels in situ, and I take great pride in the quality of steel the team produce.

Having worked in the steel industry for over 25 years Martin hopes it strengthens and for anyone coming into the sector his advice is to work hard and be flexible whilst gaining experience, the end result is very rewarding.
