The Almor Group has more than 70 years experience in custom fabrication.

We specialise in providing high quality fabricated equipment for use at extreme temperatures and under highly corrosive conditions. Today we are one of the UK’s foremost fabricators of offshore gas flare systems and a leading supplier of nickel alloy heat treatment equipment.

Our large fabrication facilities in Nottingham and Birmingham between them cover over 3000m2 with lifting capacity up to 20 tonnes.  At the heart of our fabrication facilities are teams of platers and welders who routinely work to international standards.

We help clients with quick turn round smaller fabrications associated with heat treatment jigs and fixtures for the aerospace and automotive industries. In addition, we routinely manufacture larger fabrications including large retorts, covers, muffles, radiant tubes, burner systems, flare tips and vessels and pipework.

Capabilities

Our highly skilled engineers and welders have the capability to carry out:

  • Fabrications to a tolerance of +/- 0.5mm, with a thickness range of 1mm – 30mm, working to clients drawings
  • Welding to ASME IX, BS EN ISO 15614 & 9606 to approved Weld Procedure
  • Non-destructive testing (dye penetrant/radiographic) testing with our qualified personnel working to procedures
  • Pneumatic and Hydrostatic testing, working to procedures, along with pressure recorders if required
  • Proof load testing of fabrications, working to procedures
  • Material certification and documentation for full traceability
  • Work with customers to satisfy their needs and delivery dates
  • In house corrugated sheets
