About Metalcraft

We are a specialist architectural metalwork business based in North London. The company was established in 1960 by Lewis Sugarman and in 1987 David Sugarman took over the running of the business which he continues to run today. Over the years we have gained a vast amount of experience and expertise in the manufacture and installation of metalwork and we are proud to have won many awards.

Our clients include main contractors, managing surveyors, local authorities, health trusts, government bodies and private clients. On many of our projects we act as main contractor and employ specialist subcontractors to carry out a wide range of specialist work.

All of our metalwork is manufactured in our factory with care, passion and commitment, and all of our work is in accordance with the latest British Standards and Codes of Practice and is delivered and installed by our own highly qualified and experienced site installation teams.

Metalcraft has built a reputation over the 60 years since it was incorporated for its skill and craftsmanship in producing metalwork of the highest quality. We offer a complete design service which turns your metalwork ideas into reality. We manufacture a wide range of products which vary from standard to unique, from contemporary to the elaborate. Whatever we are making, it is made with care, passion and commitment.

Meet the team




“I have successfully worked with Metalcraft on two recently completed projects in Sussex Gardens, London W2 where there was a combination of hard and soft landscaping works together with the introduction of metal railings around the private garden areas. The overall cost of the works exceeded £800,000 (excl VAT). I have generally been impressed by the quality of Metalcraft’s work and have found them to be both professional and personable in their approach and proactive in dealing with any challenges that arise. I hope to work with them on other projects in the future”.

Stuart J Hutchison, Associate

“I have known and had the pleasure of doing business with Metalcraft for 25 years or more and have always found them very understanding of our needs as Consultants representing our clients. They always deliver very speedy and comprehensive quotations. The quality of materials and workmanship is always high. I would recommend them highly to any company wanting good quality metalworks”.

Nigel Rickard, Director

Metalcraft have recently installed new period-style railings around the private garden in Hyde Park Square, W2, London. The site was challenging, given different ground levels around the Square, the protuberance of tree roots interfering with new foundations, the need to remove old foundations, the requirement not to damage the garden in any way, and the constant flow of traffic within metres of where the team was working.

The results have been superb. The quality of work has been excellent; all specifications have been met fully, and the finish is of an exceptionally high standard, both in the stone footings and the ironwork, the Square having been transformed to its former glory. It has also been a pleasure dealing with David Sugarman and his team – they have been helpful and courteous at all times, and have listened to feedback and acted on it in a professional manner and with a positive spirit. We would have no hesitation in recommending Metalcraft.
