Formbend Ltd Celebrating 50 years in business 1966 - 2016

02 Feb 2016 by Formbend Ltd

1966 was a glorious year for England’s football fans. The boys in red seized World Cup glory, and a nation celebrated. At the same time, one of the UK’s leading tube manipulation companies was born. And unlike the national football team, we’ve been on top of our game ever since.

With an emphasis on quality, price, flexibility and speed, Formbend specialises in producing tubular components and welded assemblies. We harness the efficiency of the latest technology, and the brainpower of a skilled workforce, to turn mind-bending ideas into reality.
