About Us

Ladbrook UK was established in South London in 1936 by the Spinks family. In 1947 the family and business moved to the market town of North Walsham in North Norfolk.

Founded Over 80 Years Ago

Today, the Ladbrook UK sign is as much a familiar feature for the town’s residents as the ‘Welcome to North Walsham’ sign just 100 metres down the road. The business is still privately owned by the founding family, and the second and third generation of the Spinks family still sits on the board of Directors.

They help ensure that the business continues to uphold the family values of service, quality and trust that the company was founded on over 80 years ago.

The Core Of Our Business

For many years the core business was solely press tool making and presswork, servicing industries such as armaments, furniture and building hardware, electrical and electronics, auto accessories, horticultural buildings and other niche markets.


In 1990 Ladbrook UK diversified into other processes and markets. Using our experience and expertise in traditional production techniques, coupled with a facility boasting state-of-the-art equipment, we’re uniquely placed to provide our services to manufacturers and businesses across the UK.
