We exist to secure your world.

We set out on a mission in 2016 to change the automation and aluminium industry – bringing a better choice, quality, and service to clients across West Yorkshire. We were a four-man band working from a small unit in Pudsey.

Since then, we’ve grown and we’ve grown quickly. A bigger team, bigger premises and bigger customers.

And our hard work and commitment to high standards hasn’t gone unnoticed – we’ve proud to have picked up a number of awards, including…

We’re now one of the leading suppliers of automated access, aluminium and glazing solutions to construction, manufacturing and public sites across the north of England and beyond.

And we’re not stopping there.

“The Crucial team come to work every day and give 100%. Our strong culture has been present from day one and it’s what drives us forward – helping us go from strength to strength.”

– Paul Van Heeswyk, Director
