Steel Fabrication and Architectural Metalwork specialists, Taunton Fabrications, have recently appointed Chris Sampson (Sales & Commercial Director) and Phil Harris (Design & Technical Director) to their Board of Directors.

Chris Sampson joined the company as a member of our Estimating Department in 2009 and, with a background in the construction industry, quickly got to understand how we operated. For several years he has headed the department and in that time has introduced various systems in order to improve the quality and speed in producing tenders for our clients. His efforts in building up close working partnerships with our clients has been recognised by the Taunton Fabrications Board of Directors with his recent appointment as our Sales & Commercial Director.

Phil Harris joined Taunton Fabrications back in 2006. During that time he has headed and successfully developed our growing Design Department and, as our Design Manager, is the main point of contact between our clients and their architects and engineers. Phil's technical expertise has enabled Taunton Fabrications to take on some of our most challenging and rewarding architectural metalwork packages. This expertise, enthusiasm and commitment has now resulted in Phil being appointed to the Board as our Design & Technical Director.

Chris and Phil's appointment comes at an exciting time for Taunton Fabrications. We've recently opened our new 700 square metre factory at our Galmington premises in Taunton and have appointed new staff over the last few months in order to meet the continuing growth. Their expertise and commitment to the business undoubtedly strengthens our team at the highest level.
