Uniweld is a family owned business that has been operating since the early 1950’s. The roots of the business flourished in the early days with a strong focus on cars and numerous forms of motorsport together with a wide skill set to offer the commercial vehicle sector. This great foundation has seen the business grow and diversify over the last 65 years and Uniweld has now become a leader in it’s field.
In 2015 the Uniweld Group purchased Amega Wire which has bought with it a far more diverse range of engineering skills to offer. In addition to a huge knowledge base on towbars, mufflers, and exhaust systems, the company is now well positioned to offer a wide range of general engineering services , sheet metal, and wire products. This takes Uniweld into the manufacturing sector with a very strong foundation to work from.
In 2017 the Uniweld Group was fortunate to acquire C J Williamson which has been manufacturing health care equipment for over 100 years. With fabrication and manufacturing already being a huge part of what Uniweld does, the fit for the CJW company was perfect. The Uniweld Group will now look to continue the specialised manufacturing, pioneered by C J Williamson, for another 100 years…..
