Specialist Steel Fabricators 


Cairnhill is a family business that combines traditional values of customer loyalty, quality and service, with the performance, standards and investment policies of major commercial organisations.

The company operates from the Sun Works in Coatbridge, a former steel works, which provides 120,000 square feet to house high precision steel sawing, drilling and fabrication lines. Operating under a single roof with sister companies providing specialised engineering fabrication, machining and profile burning services enables Cairnhill to offer quick turn around, high precision outputs, and a 'single source' service to major clients.

Cairnhill's highly skilled and experienced 80-strong workforce includes, platers, welders, fabricators, inspectors and specialised teams of site operatives. The Drawing Office and design team produce conventional and computerised drawings using the Xsteel and Strucad systems. We have a team of Project Managers who are responible for the planning, execution and closing out of all our projects.  The key factors to each and every project we undertake are efficiency in cost, time and quality, ensuring complete customer satisfaction.

Cairnhill has enjoyed around 75% repeat business since Bobby Watson and David Towers launched it in 1990, a testament to the company's standards and reliability. The company is now in its second generation with Neil Watson and Fraser Towers continuing the commitment to service and quality.
