Barlow Sheet Metal have been our sheet-metal supplier of choice for a great many years. Whilst we have occasionally used other local providers, none have conme close to providing the levels of quality & customer support we've come to expect from Barlow Sheet Metal as standard.
- Furthermore, having partnered with a third-party box-builder to procure components & build our machines, our need for high quality parts has instigated us moving critical parts from their preferred providers in the Midlands to Barlows, this also having offered significant cost advantages.
- The Barlows team make the effort not only deliver quality parts meeting our drawing requirements, but go the extra mile to understand our machine functionality, thereby constantly exceeding our expectations. Over the years, their expertise & patience in developing complex features & components has been invaluable in our banknote handling machine R & D.
- ****** have perhaps become accustomed to these levels of quality & customer support, only to be reminded of their true value on occasions of having found this lacking in other providers.
- All in all, a first class service! : October 2021

Consistent, reliable source for us, supplying key components in the assemblies we put together for ventilators. The provision of delivery schedules gives us a full & clear picture of our order status at any time. October 2020

- Barlow Sheet Metal always have kept the promised delivery dates and are willing to give feedback when asked between PO and delivery. They deliver high standard quality products. Packing is always in line with packing list and easy to identify. Design team is very responsive and inventive. Quotations are prepared quickly and accurately at all times of year. BSM remains at the top of our supplier's list. It is impossible not to give them top mark on any item : October 2020
- Overview: Very good understanding of ours and our customers requirements : October 2020
- Barlow Sheet Metal have for many years been ****** Systems and subsequently ******* Solutions sheet metal vendor of choice.
Whilst there have been a few occasions when timescales have necessitated using another vendor, the overall service from even the best of those has never even come close to matching that we've come to expect from Barlows.
Component quality is excellent, with Barlows generally exceeding our expectations, and furthermore showing a synergy & understanding of the quality we need in our components. I struggle to recall any significant quality issues, any very rare minor issues having always been resolved promptly and without fuss, whereas experiences with some other providers can often result in protracted & defensive conversations, which I never recall us suffering with Barlows.
I believe that with Barlows we enjoy an open working relationship in which you are always prepared to advise on any design-for-manufacture concerns we may have, thereby helping us develop innovative sheet-metal designs that might otherwise not come to fruition.
In summary, Barlows deliver a total peace-of-mind solution to our sheet-metal sourcing: October 2020

- Although there is always room for improvement from ANY of my suppliers, I am happy to cite that Barlow Sheet Metal is a supplier that has little to improve upon. If all of my suppliers were as professional, responsive and committed to providing goods and services as efficiently as BSM then my job would be a lot easier. They are a first class company delivering first class quality on time. The skill set they display as a team is commendable in every respect. I have found BSM to be on the forefront of their technical ability and continually strive for perfection and a service level of undisputed excellence. I have rarely issued such a positive statement in my last 20 years of procurement. It is always a pleasure to deal with a company that goes so far out of their way to understand their customers needs from design, through prototype and to final production stages. I have absolutely nothing adverse to comment about them whatsoever. They clearly deserve every accreditation due to them as they consistently meet the urgent and often unrealistic demands for excellence we place upon them. Well done BSM, keep up the good work. 03.07.08
