Our History

Cert. No. 9897 ISO 9001, ISO 14001

At Fabricon Design we pride ourselves on quality and  have a tried and tested quality management system. We are approved to ISO9001:2015 and ISO14001:2015 for machining and fabricating ferrous and non ferrous metals and laminates.

 

 

The Fabricon Group, led by founder Mark Bushdyhan, began trading in 1984 as a simple design-led steel fabrication company. Fabricon Design has expanded over the last 30 years to include a sophisticated design and prototyping facility embracing the latest advances in technology, combined with traditional skills and working practices to produce a diverse range of aluminium, steel and plastic products.

Whether your business is large or small we can deliver an excellent service to suit your individual needs. We operate from a modern 20 000 sq. ft. factory in Greater Manchester, located at the heart of an expansive motorway network.

  • Mark Bushdyhan

    Managing Director

    I formed Fabricon over 30 years ago, throughout this time I have made incremental changes, we are an agile organisation,... we innovate and adapt constantly to meet the changing customer demands of the market place. If we can stay abreast of the rapidly changing technology, we continue to hone our competitive edge and stand out in the marketplace. In my spare time I am a petrol head! I love to restore old bikes, I am now restoring a 1971 H2 Kawasaki and every year I travel around Europe on the best roads like the Stelvio Pass Italy and the Grossglokner in Austria on my BMW Adventurer.

    I have worked at Fabricon Design for over 20 years. I work closely with our customers to provide a design... and manufacturing service which enables faster solutions. I share ideas with your design/production department to find answers to design problems.

    Hi, I'm Luke, I joined Fabricon after completing my masters in Industrial Digitalisation. My job involves designing and developing products... and systems for both the customer and the workshop.
