While we are proud of the fact that we are the largest sheep meat processor in Ireland, of equal importance to us is the fact that we have retained the craftsmanship and attention to detail that have been our trademarks for the last fifteen years.

Kent Stainless
Kent Stainless

Kent Stainless Ltd. was founded in 1982 as a general steel fabricator. The company focused on Stainless Steel fabrication at the end of the 1980s and began specialising in stainless steel drainage products in the early 1990’s.  Sustained growth by the company throughout the 90’s saw the introduction of stainless steel surface protection, and in the late 1990s this began to be demanded for outdoor applications.

 

The external channel drainage and recessed access covers for external works were then complemented by a full suite of stainless steel street furniture including  bollardsbinscycle racks and seating.  The early 00’s also saw the introduction of a fully fledged sanitaryware range by Kent Stainless including stainless steel sinks, bed pan washers, combined WC’s and mop sinks.   The continued investment in product development and R&D ensures new products and ranges are always on the horizon.

Running parallel with this product based growth was an ad hoc custom fabrication service.  The current “Machine Building” service offers a second to none manufacturing service for large industry including paper mills, wastewater, pharmaceutical, food, dairy and beverage industries.  The in-house capabilities of laser cutting, brake pressing, pipe bending, bead blasting and electropolishing ensure all types of custom fabrication can be supplied.

Kent Stainless is currently the no.1  largest fabricator of stainless drainage in Ireland and the fourth largest in the British Isles. We have also secured the largest project awarded in Ireland for stainless steel street furniture (Platform Furniture to Railway Procurement Agency for Luas Light Rail Network) as well as numerous prestigious UK contracts including Transport For London and Wembley Stadium.

Kent Stainless are certified to quality standard ISO9001:2008, to environmental standard ISO14000, are members of FACTA, and are a Link-Up supplier (number 25324). At the time of writing we are working towards certification of safety standard ISO18001
