Best Metal Fabrication is a trading name of BestPump Ltd – Scotland’s leading hygienic stainless steel pump engineers.

BestPump has been supplying stainless steel pump and process systems to hygienic manufacturing industries in the UK and abroad since 2000.

As demand for our engineered pumping systems increased steadily, we established a long-term plan to extend our range of services to included an in-house stainless steel fabrication workshop.

In April 2017, the vision became a reality.

First Pumps, Then Fabrication!

Our Philosophy

Our aim is, quite simply, to offer the very best in customer service coupled with breath-taking product quality to our clients.

If our finished piece does not stand out against the competition in terms of quality of finish, attention to detail, short lead time and competitive price, we have not met our objectives!

With our proud heritage in hygienic industries where health & safety and hygiene is paramount, our quality control processes ensures that our finished products are to the client’s expectation and project specification.
