Company Profile


JK Design & Manufacture is a leading subcontract manufacturer of precision sheet metal components and assemblies with a reputation you can rely on. Our company has long term relationships with many well respected organisations both national and international.

Located in 17000 square feet premises in the heart of the East Midlands, JK Design takes advantage of its easy access to all major routes throughout the UK, and our customer base extends through Europe and the US.

The business originated in 1999 as Screenprint Plus Nottingham at a time when the production facility was split between screen printing onto glass and plastics and also producing metal brackets for the gaming industry. The business was part of a group of companies and after a management decision to concentrate on metal fabrication, the business name was changed to SPP Engineering and it proved itself to be a successful supplier of high quality components at competitive prices. In 2009 the business underwent a management buyout and JK Design & Manufacture Ltd was formed. The company has progressed to become a major manufacturer of high quality precision metal components to a widening and increasing customer base. The growth has been supported by investment in modern machines and investment in people; and we really do invest in our people. We’ve been a supporter of the modern apprenticeship scheme for almost 20 years and our current 3rd year apprentice is an established employee who’s
close to his 40th birthday. We offer a personal service in design concept, development and prototyping, right through to fabrication, finishing and assembly.
We value our customers and we’re dedicated to providing them with the best customer satisfaction possible.

Why choose JK Design?

We pride ourselves in being able to meet the service demands of long term customers and welcome new business with open arms.

Ongoing investment in advanced machinery and, equally important, investment in people, is something we’re proud of.  All our employees work hard to supply our customers with products that reach the highest quality and, to the specification requested. Our experience enables us to work in a broad spectrum of markets supplying many types of goods from simple component parts to complex fabricated assemblies. Recent investments include a new powder coating and wet spray facility. This has already proven itself to be of huge benefit to both the business and our clients in terms of costs and delivery times.

Our extensive engineering experience enables our design and development team to offer a facility that can stretch from one end of the spectrum to the other. With the latest version of Solid Works we can work with your file or design from scratch … the choice is yours.

JK Design & Manufacture has a continuous investment policy that ensures the business is able to offer competitive sheet metal products using the latest technology. Our 17,000 sq feet premises houses CNC controlled lasers, punching and press brake machines.

Our Company is a specialist subcontract sheet metal manufacturer providing a high quality product to a wide range of industrial markets, globally, including renewable energies, computing & electronics, food & drink handling systems, industrial machinery & refrigeration, gaming and vending, construction, transportation and retail.

We process ferous and non-ferous sheet metals as well as  plastic coated steels and have extensive facilities that enable us to offer a full fabrication service.

Batch sizes vary from below 10 to 1000s depending on the project,  and the equipment on site gives us the flexibility to respond to our customers’ needs. Lead times range from 24 hours to more typically 10 working days and this is normally driven by complexity of product and  again, customer requirements.

JK Design promises to deliver your orders to your door when you need them. Shipping throughout the United Kingdom, we use our own transport, and through mainland Europe and worldwide we source competitive and reliable expert hauliers to ensure we’re able to successfully fulfil this service.


JK Design can help with any type of Sheet Metal production.
