BSF Solid Surfaces - Award Winning, Solid Surface Fabrication and Manufacture : Corian, Hi-Macs, Hanex, Staron, Thermoforming Specialists


BSF Solid Surfaces Ltd are a Family-Run, award winning, approved, specialist Fabricator of all major brands of Solid Surface - a versatile man-made stone material produced from Aluminium Trihydrate. The company was formed in 1997, following the legacy of the successful Bailey Shopfitters Ltd, from which BSF Solid Surfaces derives its name. The company prides itself on being a close, integrated team, embracing the principles of quality, customer service, and upholding the highest levels of craftsmanship at the core. At BSF our working with our clients is our principle ethos - unlocking the potential of the material to make design dreams into reality. 

The team includes David Bailey (Founder and Chairman), Elizabeth Bailey (Finance), Nicola Barden (Managing Director), Joe O’Neill (Operations Director), Allison Bott (Project Controller), Amy Tisbury (Accounts/Finance), Paul Bailey (CAD/Estimating), and our internally trained, skilled, fabricators and installers.

BSF Solid Surfaces Ltd was founded following a visit to the first ISSFA Convention (International Solid Surface Fabricators Association; now the International Surface Fabricators Association) in the United States. Solid Surface had been a longstanding material used within the works of Bailey Shopfitters, however following inspiration from the convention the decision was made to use the experiences of Bailey Shopfitters and enter the market of Solid Surface fabrication and installation.  

Since this time much has happened within the industry - which continues to evolve. As such BSF continue to invest heavily in our resources to maintain the ability to produce cutting edge fabrications which stretches the limits of the material and design possibility. This has included a Masterwood CNC , V Groover, Thermoform Platten Oven, Holzher and Striebig Wall Saws, and a customised Fifty Tonne Press. Integrating these tools with digital CAD/CAM technology - including the application of Microstation, AutoCAD, Sketchup, and AlphaCAM, our technical proficiency ensures cooperative working with our clients to create concept into form. 

As a 3-Dimensional thermoforming specialist we can not only produce everyday thermoformed shapes, but manipulate solid surface in ways many others could not contemplate.  BSF Solid Surfaces Ltd are known for taking risks, and offering solutions to difficult design problems. We offer a full turnkey solution: from concept to completion, inclusive of surveying, templating, and overcoming challenges.
