FOX Industrial Services Ltd

I had personally worked with 1st Access at a previous company, and introduced them to Fox construction when I started. We have used them on a number of different schemes, with various different elements of works. For example, we have worked with them in Hull, Basingstoke, Birmingham, Milton Keynes (and other projects I am not involved in). and carried out shopfronts, roller shutters, wind lobby’s, curtain walling, and general repair works. some of theses works are challenging and / or  out of hours. 1st Access have always been prompt, reactive and helpful coming up with solutions. The come highly recommended by Fox construction. We Will continue to use them on current and future projects without hesitation.
