Kiyo Engineering is a progressive, forward thinking metal fabrication and design business with a wealth of experience across major industrial sectors. Based in Redhill, Surrey, it combines proven expertise in cutting-edge, high-quality fabrication and sheet metal and precision machining with the latest technologies in production, design and projects/contracts.
The company works collaboratively with clients to identify and provide the best solutions. Underlying its success is an ongoing commitment to precision engineering of the highest standard delivered in a timely and competitively priced way.
It has been in the business of engineering and design, specialising in the welding and fabrication of aluminium, stainless steel and mild steel products for an ever-increasing client, base since 2007. Kiyo Design Limited commenced operations in 2007 with its primary areas of expertise being engineering design and metal fabrication. Following a successful launch and five years of operation, Kiyo Engineering was introduced as the company’s trading name.
In 2017, it expanded into a custom-built factory space located near Gatwick Airport affording 11,000 sq ft of new production, fabrication, design and storage areas. Within 18 months, driven by its continued growth, the decision was taken to expand the factory with the addition of a further 20,000 sq ft which was completed in 2019. Richard Wilson, director of operations, says: “We moved to our current premises six years ago and there were five of us and now there are 55 of us. Now we have 35 XYZ machines and we have two CNC routers, three Addison saws. As we produce thousands and thousands of parts every month, up to 40,000 parts, we do a lot of deburring.
“As a company, we will look at any job. The good thing is if we cannot do the job, we know people who can do it. Altech are very good friends of ours and I have known the owner for twenty years and we share work. All of my sheetmetal work is subbed out to other companies and then brought back here.”

Substantial and ongoing investment in the latest plant and machinery together with robust technologies has placed us Kiyo at the cutting edge of its industry. It is a progressive and forward-thinking business with a wealth of knowledge across many sectors. Its expertise in design is complemented by a full range of advisory services including guidance on the most cost-effective production methods for projects and contracts of all sizes. Very much a family business, Bernard Wilson, Richard’s father, is the managing director and director of engineering. Richard Wilson explains: “In this factory there are 55 people, of which I would say 25 are family and friends. I have two aunties, two uncles, a sister-in-law, my mum, my dad, my stepdaughter working here and also my son from time to time.“
