About Us

James Cowie and Co Ltd: Metalwork & structural steel fabricators

James Cowie and Co Ltd, specialists in metalwork fabrication and structural steel fabrication have a reputation throughout Scotland for the production and installation of quality structural steelwork and metalwork. Once a traditional country blacksmiths and agricultural engineering company, Arthur Carney purchased the company in 1962, increasing the company’s production capacity and shifting emphasis away from agriculture and towards construction. Since then our fabrication business has expanded continuously and as industry recognition has grown, we have moved increasingly into the field of structural fabrication.


In 1989, James Cowie and Co built its extensive purpose built and modern premises in Hamilton near Glasgow. Here we are fully equipped to fabricate everything from brackets to structural steelwork. These products can be installed on site or provided on a supply only basis through our committed sales department. James Cowie and Co produce to exact manufacturing specifications. Fabricated sections can be shot blasted, galvanised or spray painted to suit your particular requirements. All welding work, whether performed on site or within the workshop is undertaken by qualified welders.


James Cowies large production capacity means that we can process bulk orders quickly and effectively. Over the years, the company has taken part in many major building projects, high profile developments and high quality fabrication work in the renewable industry which illustrates the wide variety of metalwork skill and structural fabrication skills our team brings to any project. Please refer to the gallery section for examples.
