The company

Richard Alan Engineering is one of the North of England's most innovative, ambitious and capable engineering firms.

Based in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, we are a leading force in the supply of process and dosing equipment for the water, chemical, paper, pharmaceutical, oil & gas, and food & drink industries. More specifically, we design, fabricate, install, commission and maintain vessels, reactors and pipework for customers ranging from local manufacturing clients to blue chip global companies.

Excellence in engineering

Our strength lies in our ability to deliver world-class engineering solutions. We are not the largest company in our field – although we’re growing all the time – but we have built our company on excellence in engineering, ingenuity in design and an on-going investment in the skills of our people.

We can offer you the best of both worlds: the flexibility and responsiveness of a specialist SME supplier, coupled with the stability and breadth of expertise that comes from being part of a larger, multi-skilled engineering group.

Complete engineering solutions

As you’ll see within the Products and services area of our site, we can offer an end-to-end service, extending from initial design through fabrication, installation and commissioning to planned maintenance – including associated electrical and building services. We combine expertise across all these disciplines with a commitment to delivering real value for money, but this is only part of the story

As a member of the Richard Alan Group, we can tap into the skills of other group companies, including specialists in CNC machining, our pumps and gearboxes business and our Scafolding Access Solutions team.

Our group business has developed – and will continue to do so – through a combination of organic growth and acquisition, and this multi-disciplined, single source approach enables us to deliver as broad a range of solutions as our customers are looking for.

This means that we are equally capable of providing complete turnkey systems as we are fabricating and installing a single storage vessel.

The Richard Alan Group has been recognised in the London Stock Exchange Group’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain. This list identifies businesses that are the most ‘vibrant, successful and dynamic’ in their sector and that ‘consistently out-perform their peers in the industry’. Find out why today!
