About GH Preston

Established in 1945 by George H Preston, the company started as a blacksmiths and agricultural engineering firm. We are a 4th generation family business and Preston family members still run the business to this day. Our business has developed throughout the intervening periods and continues to change as a result of the improvements brought about by listening to our customers, embracing new technology and complying with the legislation and standards for quality, health & safety and the environment.

Focusing upon our expertise with specialised welding, steel fabrication & our experience in gas utilities we employ a significant number of coded welders, and qualified gas pipe fitters. To compliment these we also employ mechanical and civil engineering personnel, this combination of skills and competencies enables the business to meet our customers’ needs overseen by our abilities in project management, design, manufacture, installation and maintenance services.

We recognise that customers and their stakeholders place a high degree of significance upon quality, health, safety and the environment, with this in mind we endeavour to work in partnership with them by meeting the internationally recognised standards in these fields, holding BSI certificates for Quality ISO 9001, Occupational Health and Safety ISO 45001 and the Environmental Management ISO 14001. Our goal of continual improvement in these areas has been rewarded with the receipt of an “integrated management system accreditation” from BSI.

Having previous commitments to the water, coal, gas and rail industries, we are registered with “Achilles” utility vendor data base schemes, having also successfully completed their SHEQ verification audit.

Today, we are proud to say that we have undertaken works and projects on behalf a number of major companies that include; National Grid, Cadent, North London Gas Alliance, Severn Trent Water, Tube Lines Limited, Bagnalls and SGN. In doing so we accept our responsibilities for ensuring a positive and successful working partnership, which is evidenced in their continued confidence in our ability to deliver the service and quality they demand.

Our reputation has been built upon the provision of a reliable quality service. To uphold our good reputation we have adopted a continuous improvement approach by monitoring our company’s performance and ensuring that our personnel’s skills and competencies are refreshed through training and requalification.

Finally, it is one of our aims to be recognised as a company that cares about our customers and wherever possible, helping with solving their problems for we are fully aware that our success is directly related to and totally dependent upon the satisfaction and success of our customers.
