Handrail Creations is proudly family-run, founded by father and son team Martin and Kenny Macfarlane.
The company includes several departments, each with a specific area of expertise. While all our processes and CNC manufacturing are completed in-house, we employ a mixture of both permanent staff and freelancers who have helped us become a market leader handrail supplier.
We’ve continued to rapidly expand since founding the company in 2014, including a factory expansion that facilitated several new hires and additional vehicles in our fleet.
The business includes a diverse workforce that encompasses everything from programmers to machine operators and installers. Our dedicated team also includes contract managers with the ability to manage projects of any size or scope, as well as highly skilled designers and a survey team who are on hand to overlook projects at sites internationally as well as domestically. Our production team use their keen attention to detail to ensure projects are completed without a hitch, while quality control oversees and manages the lead times and processes behind each new client task. The team work together to ensure smooth transactions and superior quality handrails, every time.
Here’s a quick look at our main areas of operations:
Designers & Surveyors
Our in-house design and surveying team produce detailed technical drawings for our manufacturing and installation teams. Their work includes customer-focused meetings where they discuss the brief and issue drawings to address specific issues. This team is also responsible for conducting 3D surveys.
Programmers & Engineers
Our programming and engineering team uses state-of-the-art software to program our machines. They use modern, custom-tooling to create each handrail, ensuring a unique finish for every client.
The production team develops hardwood handrails using our CNC machines and a blend of both traditional and modern techniques to sand and assemble each handrail. This helps make installation much faster and cleaner for the client.
As the largest dedicated handrail factory in the UK, we produce a precise result with each of the handrails we create.
Contracts & Sales Team
Our contracts and sales team are based in our open plan Bolton office. From here, they manage projects across the UK, producing RAMS, helping customers and supplying any necessary samples.
Installation & Polishing Team
Our installation and polishing team are spread across the UK in multiple sub-teams. Each one brings more than 20 years’ experience to the profession. With a keen attention to detail, they work to maintain the quality our customers expect.
