The Company

Originally a subsidiary of Fred Baker Scientific, in 1991 FBS Contracts became an independent company manufacturing and installing Laboratory furniture, owned by our Managing Director Tracey Robinson. Initially the core of the business was supplying furniture to the thriving pharmaceutical industry in the North-West of England however it quickly became apparent that our products were wanted more widely than this and we soon began to supply universities, hospitals and schools with laboratory furniture and clinical furniture. Both locally and nationally.

Over the years the company has sustained stable, organic growth and we have always believed in having a solid financial base. In 2011 we invested in a larger, more modern factory with room for more CNC machinery and excellent access to the motorway network.

In 2015 as part of our continuing process of improvement we overhauled our business systems and were awarded a level 4 accreditation by Achilles Building Confidence. This meticulous procedure includes a wide ranging audit process with an agenda significant to health, safety and environmental practices, as well as quality, social responsibility, supply chain and subcontractor management. We are also CHAS and ConstructionLine certified. In 2015 we also made a significant investment in Building Information Management (BIM) systems, based on AutoCAD Revit.

The Team

We pride ourselves on listening to and working with our clients and our team is there to help you from the initial specification and design of your furniture to the final installation and commissioning. For all of our contracts, a Director of FBS Contracts will be your appointed contact throughout, ensuring that the design, manufacture and installation stages of your project will be integrated seamlessly together. Your furniture will be designed and manufactured at our factory in Cheshire then delivered and installed by our own technicians. At FBS we always ensure that our workmanship and customer service are of the highest quality.

We are a family business with a staff of 30 and low staff turnover, our clients benefit from this stability and the continuity of having one point of contact for the duration of their project.
