Anhop Metalwork Ltd. is a family business, owned by Alan and Niall Hopper. The company has vast experience of the steel industry, commencing with Niall Hopper, whose initial experience was as a Metallurgist in the Steel Manufacturing sector. Many years then followed in the Steel Stockholding industry and this then materialised into Niall's own company, in the early 1980's. In 1982, Niall's son Alan Hopper joined the family business and the company evolved into a manufacturing company, with the opening of the first production unit, in 1985. After several years and various locations, the company relocated to Blantyre Industrial Estate in 2006 and is currently based at Block 4 Unit 7, Blantyre Ind. Estate, Blantyre, G72 0UP.
Originally, trading as a Steel supply company, the owners identified the Engineering and Construction sectors, as areas, where the sub contract supply of Steel and Metalwork, could be pursued successfully. During the early 1990's,the ongoing modernisation of large areas of Glasow housing stock and the similarly large demand for both new build and modernised commercial property, provided a customer base to grow the company from simple fabrications, to a more varied and sophisticated range of end products.
The traditional Glasgow skills of Blacksmith/ Fabricator were widely available, however, over the years the skills have had to be developed and enhanced, so, that the need for flexibility, from clients, could be satisfied. Whether the demand was for Heavy Structural Steel or Light Architectural Metalwork, the company has developed the ability to satisfy the needs of clients, large or small, with quality work at competitive prices.
