G-Met Ltd is a metal welding and fabrication company based in Guernsey. They offer services from Structural steel fabrication and erecting, to wrought iron railings, balustrades and gates, trailers and truck bodies and much more.

G-Met Ltd recently purchased a Morgan Rushworth press brake from Selmach. We spoke to Geoff to find out about their experience of buying the press brake and how it had impacted their business.


“The aftercare and service has been very good throughout”


What led you to purchase a new machine? What was the challenge or objectives?

We bought it to encourage new business. We wanted to be able to keep the work that required this kind of machinery, to do it ourselves rather than farm it out to others.


How did you hear about Selmach and why did you choose them?

We have bought our machines from Selmach for 10 to 15 years. They are very helpful and reliable. They’ve never let us down and their products are reasonably priced.


What features attracted you to the machine your purchased?

We went to Selmach and told them what we needed. They recommended the Morgan Rushworth.


How have you benefited from the machine? Did it meet your expectations?

We are still looking to ascertain the full benefit to the business but so far it has been good, and it has done what we wanted it to do.


Has it helped you save time and increase productivity?

We didn’t really need it to increase productivity, that wasn’t an issue we had, but it has saved us time.


What are your thoughts on the aftercare and service throughout the process?

The aftercare and service has been very good throughout. Nigel, in particular has been extremely helpful.
