About Us

Alec Jacobs forging steel

Our Story

Records show that blacksmiths have been trading from the Kirton forge since 1844. E Jacobs and Sons Ltd was established in 1938 and has been trading there ever since.

Over the years, we have completed many different projects. We have exported our patented yacht cradles worldwide, supplied boat stands for the royal yacht Britannia pilot boat in Scotland, and made hinges for cell doors in Pentonvale prison in London.

To this day, we still draw on our traditional values, and believe that the key to our longevity is genuine customer satisfaction.

Working with the community

We believe in creating and enriching community spaces with our work.

Over the years we have participated in the creation of several flower displays in the nearby towns, as well as creating village signs, park benches and playground equipment in the local area.  

Images of these works can be seen on our product page.
