F.H. Speight was founded in 1946 by the grandfather of the present partners to undertake general engineering.


The business started mainly servicing the woodworking industry, and expanded to servicing the textile industry, which was very prevalent in the Calder Valley at that time. In recent years the business has taken on a number of machinery service contracts, for public transport operators, servicing both metal and woodworking machinery.

Over the years the business has gained a reputation for quick, reliable and quality workmanship, and products, and in recent years has started to develop in-house design and manufacture of specialised machinery.


To this end we have recently introduced CNC turning to our range of products and are able to handle work in a number of materials up to 200mm dia. x one metre between centres. We also have milling, drilling and slotting capabilities. We have no limits on numbers, being particularly well equipped to deal with ” one – off ” work. We also undertake repair or manufacture of obsolete or broken parts, in fact we will look at any type of repair on any machine.

The company operates a quality management system which has gained BS EN ISO 9001: 1994 Certification, which includes aspects specific to the mechanical engineering industry. The Company constantly monitors its quality performance and will implement improvements when appropriate.
