About us

Brian Hill was born and brought up in the Cornish village of Delabole, world famous for its slate. The Son of a Cornish Industrial Blacksmith, Brians Father worked
in the slate quarry and also owned his own workshop.
Brian worked with his father until he left school and then became a trainee in welding and blacksmithing for a local agricultural and
engineering business.
Some years later he moved to Yeovil in Somerset with his Wife and two Sons, finding employment as a Welder Fabricator with
a local company achieving the position of Foreman.

Brian took the decision to go self-employed in 1978 and set up Brian Hill metalcraft. Trained both as a Blacksmith and a fabricator he was more than able to satisfy all areas of the metalworking industry building up a wide and varied customer base.
