Shackles-R-US are a trading site of Graphskill LTd
Graphskill is a component manufacturer with its core business in the pipework industry, but with customers in a variety of other industries ranging from communications to sanitary ware.
We work with distributors and component suppliers across the world but also work directly with clients such as Racal, AMEC, ICI, Kvaerner, Powergen, Balfour Beatty, McAlpine, John Laing, North West Water, Klargester, Armitage Shanks and BNFL.
Most of our business centres around supply u-bolts, hangers, clips and associated items, however our technical design engineers also work closely with customers in creating bespoke products.
Our lead times and reliability are the best in the business and we have efficient systems that will provide you with prompt quotes for both stocked and bespoke products. We work to very high quality standards with materials in various grades of stainless steel, carbon steel and non-ferrous metals.
Many customers make us their first choice, knowing we deliver a quality product and service that puts them, the customer, first. Reliability is our hallmark. We have a professional and dedicated workforce who are committed to fulfiling the quality and delivery promised, no matter how short the lead-time.
We are sure once you have experienced the products and services Graphskill can offer, you will stay with us for many years, just as our existing customers have.
The Company was first registered in 1976, with its main purpose being a Design Office. Two years later, the function was increased to General Engineering, servicing the local Engineering Companies in the county. We found our niche in the manufacture of pipe support ancillaries, such as U Bolts, Pipeclips, Eyerods, etc., supplying the Contract Engineers on the British Nuclear Fuels Limited sites at Sellafield, Springfield, Dounreay, etc. Since the early 1990's we have built up a customer base that covers the whole of the UK and diversified our product range to suit other markets than that of the Piping Industry. Up to present, our involvement in exporting has been through our UK customers, who have exported our products throughout the world. Whilst continuing these associations, we are in the process of establishing agents and distributors within the EC, with a view to breaking into that market and perhaps widening our worldwide supply through EC Contract Engineers.
