Procter Fencing Systems

From its historical origins in the 1740's, the Procter business of today operates five separate divisions - Machine Guarding, Fencing Systems, Concrete and Fencing Products, Cast Stone architectural features. In all its businesses, Procter aims to combine the best aspects of traditional craftsmanship and care for its customers and employees, with up to date technology and production methods. Established in 1740 by William Varley, the Procter company of today has unrivalled expertise in machinery guarding and security fencing.

During the 18th and 19th centuries the business was mainly involved in the manufacture of a wide range of agricultural and domestic wire products from a number of small factories in Yorkshire. The trading name of Procter Bros was introduced in 1884 by John and Charles Procter, and it was under their control that the company really started to develop its identity as specialist wireworkers.
