We commissioned our whole brew house with BRITANX a few years ago. The team were extremely helpful, happy too build to our specifications while also suggesting helpful improvements. Part of the reason we chose Fabdec was that they were very happy for us to visit their factory and see our kit in various stages of manufacture, which convinced us that we could expect really high quality vessels. Overall, we’ve been really happy – and any queries we had were answered very quickly and professionally.

Chris Evans

Hertford Brewery

Bewdley Brewery has used BRITANX Ltd for two bespoke vessels. Both vessels perform well to their design specifications. The vessels were extremely well made to our specifications. We were kept informed at every stage in the design and manufacturing process with new/revised drawings made available to us as and when required. We were also invited to the factory in Shropshire to see our vessels being made. The very fact that BRITANX is UK-based is a huge plus to us because you get a personal one-to-one service from the initial enquiry right through to delivery. The prices are competitive with other UK suppliers. When we are ready to upgrade, we will certainly be going back to BRITANX!
