Barenco has now extended its interests throughout Europe, The USA and Canada, and the Middle and Far East. In addition it is developing interests in Africa and South America.


Barenco was formed in 1985, and in its formation brought with it a multitude of experience and technical knowledge. This is the foundation on which it has developed.

Initially our expertise was in toolmaking and batch production of precision components for the electronics, telecommunications, computer and general manufacturing industries for national, international and multi-national clients.

Early in our development we were commissioned to design and manufacture a Vandal-Proof Sprinkler Head for fire-extinguishing in a Custodial Building then under construction. As a result of this success, we have been commissioned to design, test, manufacture and supply a wide range of security products.

This has transformed our manufacturing base towards product design, development and manufacture, together with quality precision engineering and fabrication in all metals - ferrous and nonferrous - and plastics. We are developing similar projects with foreign governments in the construction and maintenance of custodial buildings.
