Profiling Expertise

Founded in 1976 as a flame profiling service, over the next 3 decades we have expanded our services portfolio to include laser, waterjet and plasma while still retaining our flame cutting capabilities. In turn, this has enabled us to establish ourselves as one of the largest and most diverse specialist profile cutting companies in the UK.

Diverse Cutting Methods

We’re proud to be one of the few profiling companies able to offer 4 different cutting methods under the same roof. This enables our customers to have a choice of 4 different cutting methods, enabling them to find and utilise a service perfectly fitted to their requirement. It also allows us to offer alternative profiling methods which may be more cost effective for our clients.

CE Marking (BS EN 1090-1)

The construction industry forms a large part of our customer base and so we understand the importance of being able to provide CE Marked profiled parts. Due to this, Charles Day underwent extensive auditing and now have a Factory Process Control system in place for the laser/flame/plasma cutting of CE Marked materials due to be used within the construction industry.

Large, Purpose-Built Facilities

Our 40,000 square foot purpose built faculties are large enough to house all our profiling machines under one roof. This puts us in the position to handle almost any requirement regardless of size, quantity and cutting methods required.

State-of-The-Art Machines

We know that our customers expect the best possible product and so we continually invest in the latest cutting technology to provide our customers with the highest quality profile cut parts.

24hrs, 7 Days a Week Cutting

Our CNC driven cutting methods and automation system allows us to provide “lights-out” production. With our machines cutting around the clock, our clients get a more cost effective service and reduced lead times.

EU Metal

We always strive to use metals sourced from within the European Union due to the higher quality and more consistency of the product. However dependant on the material and requirement, this may not always be possible

Large Stock Levels

We keep a wide range of different metals in a range of sizes and thicknesses in stock. However, if we don’t have a particular material in stock, we can usually source it within 24-48 hours.
