Whilst the industries we serve may have changed, our commitment to quality and sustainability has not. Here you can find all the must-know information about our manufacturing services, including why you should choose Lionweld Kennedy, what we offer and how to get in touch to get started.

What is the Difference Between Manufacturing and Fabrication? 

Although they may sound similar and have a similar outcome of a finished, final product, manufacturing and fabrication are different processes. Manufacturing builds products from raw materials, fabrication is different as it builds from other parts.
