Design Department

Design Office

At our Ripley office we have a team of Project Engineers working full time, five days a week, designing assemblies with the Item MB system. We are able to draw on years of experience to provide you with the most suitable solutions. Find out more about our design service.


Machining Facilities

Our 30,000sq.ft. factory has dedicated machining centres for all standard processing operations. This cuts down dramatically on set-up times, enabling our technicians to spend their time constructively, processing and assembling frames. Learn more about our frame construction service.

Warehouse Stock Levels

Our massive warehouse enables us to keep huge stocks of all Item components. This means quick deliveries on all catalogue parts, with same day despatch as standard. Learn more about our catalogue sales.
