Firmac Ltd. was formed in 1985 as a sister company to Firth Sheet Metal Ltd. who had previously been Duct Manufacturers for twenty years. At that time general dissatisfaction throughout the industry due to a lack of automation led Firmac’s founder, Colin Firth, to design their first machine, the Nuloc Duct seaming machine closely followed by the ADF (Auto Duct Former).

Firmac Timeline

  • 1985 - Founded by Colin & George Firth
  • 1987 - First machines sold into Germany
  • 1991 - Firmac expands and builds purpose built Factory to accomodate demand
  • 1992 - Wins Yorkshire Business of the Yeat
  • 1994 - Firmac enters Russian & Middle East Markets
  • 1997 - Gains recognition from European leaders

Firmac Ltd.

Firmac Ltd. was founded by Colin in 1985, along with brothers Lewis and Brian, as a sister company to Firth Sheet Metal and in response to the lack of high quality duct manufacturing machinery available in the market. Frustrated by the lack of well-engineered machinery available to sheet metal workers, Colin designed the first Nu-Loc duct seamer and ADF, Automatic Duct Former, revolutionising the industry and providing the foundations for international expansion. The original Firmac factory was situated on Durham Street in Scarborough, but after only five years the business had expanded so much larger premises became an urgent requirement.

In 1990 the two businesses, Firth Sheet Metal and Firmac successfully bid for the largest unit, 24,000 ft², on the Barry’s Lane Industrial Estate and the two companies finally shared the same address.

The nine strong workforce had expanded to 50 employees and by 2009 the business moved to its current premises, 30,000 ft² purpose built accommodation at Elge House on the Eastfield Industrial Estate.

Since its launch in 1985 the company has gone from strength to strength. It now commands a leading position in the international marketplace and is recognised as a forerunner in design and innovation. Combining the strengths of a professional internal design department with experienced electrical and mechanical engineering the company now exports 95% of its business to over 50 countries worldwide.

Firth Sheet Metal Ltd.

Firth Sheet Metal is a family owned business which was established in 1964 by time served sheet metal workers George Firth and son Colin. Initially offering general metal work services and repairs, father and son worked in an outbuilding on a garage forecourt in Fridaythorpe in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

The business grew and after the first winter relocated to Chapman’s Yard in Scarborough. Perhaps not the ideal location as the workshop was on the upper level of the building so any large or heavy objects had to be placed on a hoist and lifted into the workshop.

By 1967 the business had moved again to Silver Street in Scarborough and employed its first two apprentices. Following in their father’s footsteps, 20 years later, two sons of one of the original apprentices were employed as sheet metalwork apprentices. Employing and training engineering apprentices remains central to the business and several apprentices are recruited every year to the Firth Firmac Group.

Founder, George Firth retired from the business in 1969 and a year later the business which continued to grow relocated to Barry’s Lane.

The business was by now undertaking large contract work and attributes much of its success to Trevor Hartley who joined the business in 1975 and brought experience of working on larger projects in the West Riding. He was with the firm when the business experienced considerable expansion from 1975 through to the millennium until his retirement.

The business, now situated in a purpose built factory on the Eastfield Industrial Estate, is unrecognisable from the two man business based in a workshop on a garage forecourt in Fridaythorpe. Now boasting a client list that includes leading supermarket chains, international retailers, building contractors and mechanical engineering services the company continues to install “small works” for many of the hotels, restaurants and bars, holiday parks and campsites in the area, Firth Sheet Metal is seen as the leading sheet metal fabricator and ductwork business on the Yorkshire Coast.
