Smartco Projects has grown from years and years of passionate metalworking. From an early age, metalwork and welding fascinated me. When I was ten years old, my dad, a very talented woodworker, bought me my first welder. I was lucky to inherit all my technical talents from him - a most remarkable and resourceful man who imparted all his technical knowledge to me. I, however, taught myself how to weld and by 11 was making some very handy contraptions.
At that stage, my sophisticated toolset comprised a welder, some consumables, and a large metal file to smooth down the welds I had made. Progress was slow. Neat welds became a necessity if I was to avoid days and days of filing!
Fast forward many years, and lots of things have changed. I no longer file welds by hand and have gained many more skills and tools. Tragically, though, my parents have passed. I have dedicated this business and website to them because without the knowledge they both imparted to me, inside the workshop and out, I would not be the person I am today.
One thing that hasn't changed, though, is my passion for metalwork. I believe in quality over quantity and am proud of my work. So if you're looking for a cheap and nasty job - give me a miss and move on - I am certainly not your man. If you're looking for reliability, quality and good work ethics, please call me.
