Buildings can be ordered as kits for customers to erect, or with our erection service. We serve the whole United Kingdom and beyond from our factory near Llanelli, Wales.

Our History

The Shufflebottom story started in 1977, when Lorna Shufflebottom visited her doctor while expecting her first child. "Would you know anyone who can make gates?" the doctor asked. "My husband Martin can," she replied.

So Martin agreed to make metal gates. First he had to buy a drill costing £27, he used the drill to construct the gates, and he charged the doctor £28. So this first venture was not profitable, but the Shufflebottoms had started out on the road to becoming leading manufacturers of agricultural and industrial steel-framed buildings. The company Shufflebottom Ltd was founded in May 1986, with Martin as managing director.

Lorna took over at the head of the company in 1993, and continued to expand and diversify, constructing strong steel-framed buildings for all kinds of uses, in the countryside where Shufflebottom sheds are very popular with farmers, and in cities where Shufflebottom buildings are used for factories, superstores, business units, warehouses and many other purposes.

Shufflebottom Today

The second generation of Shufflebottoms, Alex and Wesley, and general manager Alec Davies became directors of the company in March 2008, following Lorna's decision to relinquish day-to-day management.

Shufflebottom Ltd is committed to environmentally responsible methods to secure a more sustainable future.
