WELCOME TO GENERAL & TUBE ENGINEERING

General & Tube Engineering is a leading engineering firm in the North West of England. Headed up by Mark Townshend, our team of dedicated engineers have the technical expertise to exceed your expectations.

General & Tube Engineering has worked on many exciting projects, though rather than bask in the limelight, they are often sub-contracted by designers. Work includes making cells and fittings for police vehicles, making products for the vehicle conversion industry (limousines, hearses and public transport vehicles) fabricating handrails for coach converters and bus manufacturers, making office and school furniture, making display equipment for large retailers (including Marks and Spencer) and many other practical applications.

General & Tube Engineering are also renowned for their caravan spare wheel carriers which were designed some 30 years ago and are still rated as one of the easiest to fit, durable and well engineered caravan spare wheel carrier on the market.

The firm operates from premises in Swinton, based in Salford and close to Manchester, Bolton, Bury and the entire North West — though many of the firm’s customers come from further afield.
