To meet increasing market demands, Ralph Patterson needed rolling machinery to give the business the capacity to roll larger plates.


Patterson Ring Rolling is a family business which has been up and running since 1989.  The company carries out ring rolling and metal works, creating curved products to suit today’s modern buildings. During the last 4 years, the business has witnessed a steady growth in orders for the plate rolling service. Combined with an ever-increasing demand for wind turbine manufacturing and larger plate rolling structures, this created new opportunities for the business.


The project secured funding of over £34,000 to purchase a rolling machine, to set up a new website and undertake marketing activities to promote the business. In an age where curves are everything, Patterson Ring Rolling can make shaped steel ideas a reality.


“Purchasing the new machinery meant that companies who previously took their business to mainland UK were now approaching Patterson Ring Rolling to undertake their projects as a local supplier. At Patterson Ring Rolling, not only do we provide the product they need but companies can approach us at design stage for advice in all areas of steel rolling which ultimately will save them time and money.”
