Our History

Based in Sheffield, Mayflower Engineering Limited has been crafting high quality engineered products for over 40 years.  Founded in 1974, Mayflower Engineering’s core business was initially the manufacture of quality engineering products for the Coal Mining and Steel Industries. Over the years, the company developed an impressive reputation for manufacturing products which were built to last.

The business underwent a management buyout in 2008, with the new management team led by Managing Director Kevan Bingham. Since then, Mayflower Engineering has diversified into a range of sectors such as sub-sea, off-shore exploration, renewable energy, nuclear, rail, waterways gates and bridges, construction equipment, military vehicles and waste recycling. This diversification has seen us undertake a number of prestigious projects, utilizing our unique strengths to provide high quality engineered solutions.

The Future

Mayflower has retained its core skill base whilst investing in additional sales staff, an innovative marketing strategy and the latest technology and equipment. The obtaining of the highly coveted BS EN ISO 3834 Welding Quality Standard, together with state of the art machinery such as our high definition 5 axis CNC plasma cutter, provides the impetus to embark on a new journey of growth and innovation for the next decade.

Our expert design and manufacturing teams now have access to the latest 3D Solid Modelling, finite element stress analysis and design validation software. This enables us to deliver high quality mechanical engineering solutions to a diverse customer base. We are also one of a handful of UK companies which meet the exacting standards required to fabricate products used in the offshore oil and gas extraction and nuclear power industries. Our highly skilled and knowledgeable team can rise to any challenge across a wide range of industries.
