Where did it all start?
The managing director, Keith Rackham, served a five-year apprenticeship in engineering at Laurence and Scott electromotive in Norwich. Keith worked there from 1954 to 1969 when he started business as K Rackham engineering trading from a garage at the rear of a terrace house in Norwich manufacturing ornamental steel work.
After a year the volume of work outgrew the workshop and new premises were found at Trowse, a small village on the outskirts of Norwich, in two disused railway arches. These were modified to suit the type of work undertaken for local companies and authorities, fabricating in stainless steel, mild steel and aluminium.
During this time Keith was joined by his son Jonathan who also served a five-year apprenticeship. Jonathan and Keith’s wife Pauline are also directors in the family firm.
We continued to expand over the following years and decided to construct our own purpose built factory. This was realised in 1985 when we purchased a building plot and erected a factory at Hellesdon Park Road.
This is our factory more than 30 years on, at the same location but with a larger highly skilled team. We have more capabilities to deliver your requirements and even more experience to advise you the best way to achieve them.
