Why Profab 2018-04-11T13:56:21+00:00


Profab Access Ltd is an owner-managed access panels business located in Atherstone Warwickshire.  Incorporated in 2001 by Adrian Allbrighton, the Managing Director and Austin Stone, the Technical Director.

Profab Team

We recognised there was still a need for non standard &  bespoke access solutions  after British Gypsum closed down the then market leader (Profilex Ltd) in an effort to drive the market to a standard off the shelf solution. At that time Adrian was the Production Manager and Austin Stone was the Technical Manager. It wasn’t long before Profab Access Ltd were manufacturing for them.

We quickly became widely recognised for our ability to design and manufacture non standard & bespoke access solutions in very short lead times while still offering a next day service on standard stock items.

Since then we have grown year on year investing the majority of profits back into the company to improve product, efficiencies and the working environment.


To keep pace with both UK and global demand for our products, In January 2014 we invested in a new 46,000ft manufacturing and distribution facility. This new facility has enabled us to exceed current market share through increased production capacity and strengthen our position as market sector leaders.


As Investors In People we provide our committed team of professionals, designers and engineers with the necessary tools, training and opportunities to access their full potential. Together, our combined talent possesses all the qualities required for product improvement and future innovation of access panels and access solutions.
