1990 – The Personal Touch
Control Fabrications was founded in 1990, with the belief that only the personal touch can create true customer satisfaction. With only a handful of machines coupled with a deep-rooted desire to craft engineering that added value we began work making the invisible visible. As the machines and expertise grew, so too a reputation for quality and distinction. Today our teams are more diverse, as larger sites house a vast knowledge pool of engineering with skilled manufacturers and designers. Unified by the founding idealism of bespoke craftsmanship.
1992 – Realizing the Vision
Our metalwork is timeless, intricate and precise. We did not simply follow drawings instead we preferred to challenge ideas to source the best solution. This is derived from a firm belief that we can and we will add value. Whether that is in the design, construction or materials, our knowledge base has the focus and aptitudes to realize the vision.
1993– Adding Value
We strive to manufacture work that enriches. From our endless library of prototypes, samples and drawings we have ensured that value is placed at the heart of each operation. We utilize cutting edge techniques and methods of engineering processes to source the exact finish and requirements based on comprehensive analysis of our customer needs.

2004– Contemporary Aesthetics

Our collaborations with the brand have seen the opening of stores across the world while providing a gateway into the world of Louis Vuitton.
2006 – Tracking Progress
