Toomers Engineering is a renowned name in the steel fabrication industry, known for its commitment to excellence and sustainability. When faced with the need for expansion and improved processes, they approached the challenge with determination and vision.

The approval of the premises extension was a significant achievement. It allowed Toomers Engineering to accommodate cutting-edge hydraulic cutting equipment, a game-changer for their manufacturing processes. The extension has not only enhanced their operational efficiency but has also created opportunities for job creation within the local community.


One of the most remarkable outcomes of this project is the reduction in energy consumption. The introduction of new hydraulic cutting equipment has led to a remarkable 50% reduction in energy use compared to their previous processes. This remarkable achievement aligns with Toomers Engineering’s commitment to sustainable and eco-friendly practices.



Toomers Engineering’s dedication to sustainability extended to the installation of 96 solar panels on the roof of their premises. These panels harness the power of the sun, reducing their carbon footprint and energy costs. The adoption of renewable energy sources is a testament to their commitment to a greener future.


The transformation of Toomers Engineering’s Downton premises stands as a shining example of vision, determination, and a commitment to sustainable growth. The successful change of use approval, premises extension, energy efficiency improvements, and the adoption of renewable energy sources exemplify their dedication to excellence and environmental responsibility.

This case study underscores the importance of forward-thinking businesses in driving positive change within their communities and industries. Toomers Engineering’s journey inspires us all to strive for excellence while maintaining a focus on sustainability and environmental stewardship.
