DRB’s expansive in-house mechanical and electrical engineering skills means:

  • If you need to integrate old with new, we’ll do it.
  • If you need to improve your production process but aren’t sure how, we’ll design it.
  • If you need new plant designing, or existing equipment adapting, we’ve done it.


Our designers understand that sometimes you want a beautifully bespoke solution that needs detailed planning. Other times, you just need a widget and a gadget to get your legacy system up and running. Either way you’ll get a fit-for-purpose design to meet your requirements.

We use the latest 3D modelling software to simulate real-world scenarios combined with failure mode and effects analysis to accurately determine and measure loads and stresses.

The design and fabrication team meet regularly to discuss projects. Nothing beats the real-world experience that our senior engineers feed into the design process.


DRB is the most experienced and diverse family-run engineering company in the UK.
