About Us

Helston Engineering Ltd was founded in April 1977 by Alan Belcher.


Alan was born in Darlaston in 1938 after a formal education he attended Wednesbury technical collage and then on to Joseph Sankey to serve his engineering apprenticeship. After a couple of years break to do his National Service, Alan returned to engineering working his way up to become Chief estimator at Boulton Paul Aircraft (Wolverhampton) where  he was  involved in the weight and balance calculations on the English Electric Lightning Jet Fighter. He moved to chief estimator and rep at The Aluminium Bronze Company (Walsall). After they closed down he moved to work as a rep for a company called High Duty Alloys in Slough before returning to the Black Country to work for the Phosphor Bronze Company in Birmingham.


In April 1977, with help from his wife Elizabeth, Alan set up in business as Helston Engineering Ltd in an old leather factory in Walsall in the West Midlands. Alan was an old style Engineer who set great store in the quality of work, fairness and providing a service to the customer that they could rely on.


He was shortly joined by his two sons Michael and Robert who worked well with him and to this day share the same work ethics. They quickly out grew there first factory and moved to larger premises providing quality machined parts to an ever demanding market.


As the years have passed Helston Engineering Ltd have grown in size whilst maintaining the same standards Alan set and now are looking forward to the future in an ever changing market place.
