Case Study RNC Fabrications Ltd

Based at Fordingbridge in Hampshire, on the western fringe of the New Forest National Park, is RNC Fabrications, a specialist in precision plate and sheet metal profiling and fabricating with more than a few distinguishing features. For instance, the company's owner, Richard Crossley, is not just an ex-welder turned entrepreneur who started the business single-handedly 24 years ago; he is a keen triathlete who will sometimes even take a swim in the local lake before starting work.
