Company History

Hospital Metalcraft Ltd was founded in 1953, occupying a site at Ashton Gate in Bristol, initially specialising in the manufacture of filing cabinets and refurbishment of hospital beds and trolleys. Over the years it has developed a large portfolio of products; medicine cabinets, trolleys, cot-sides and infusion stands to name but a few. As the company expanded its product ranges and processes, it was necessary to look for a new site. With family connections in the South of England, the company relocated to Blandford Forum in Dorset.

The company has continued to progressively expand, and now occupies approximately 6000m2 over several sites. A family owned and managed business now in its third generation, with over 150 employees, it offers an extensive range of “Bristol Maid” medical furniture and equipment, designed and manufactured using modern techniques. In addition to the manufacture of the “Bristol Maid” range it also distributes a comprehensive range of storage solutions, including racks and polymer carts from “Metro Health Care”.

With over 50 years of experience, a wide customer base including the NHS, Private Sector, Southern Ireland, The Middle East and a strong distributor network, the Bristol Maid brand has become synonymous with quality, durability and reliability.

Stuart Davis, our Managing Director is one of the third generation of Davis’s to be involved in the business. Our passion for innovation means much has changed, yet we still uphold the same values of honesty and integrity, and share the same commitment to quality, as the day we started. It’s through talking to Bristol Maid customers that has inspired us to develop new ranges of products that are fit for purpose, easy to use, and above all reliable and value for money.
