David Franks explains milling machine to Peter Pollard
With increasing globalisation of world markets, it's good to know that Barton Marine manufactures all of its marine hardware in the UK and still retains its competitive edge.
Based in Whitstable, Kent, Barton has a long tradition with the town having been established there back in 1948 by Ron Barton, the founder of the company. The company has come a long way since those early days with present owner David Coleman transforming the company into what it is today - a major international player supplying blocks and hardware to over 30 countries.
Some of our key members of staff have been with the company for more than 20 years and are multi-skilled in the complex processes that go into the finished product. These skills are being taught to the younger members of the team to ensure continuity and the high standards our customers expect.
