Why Howick

Howick world famous rollforming machines

Howick Ltd is internationally recognized as an innovative and trusted specialist rollforming manufacturer of quality machinery. Our reputation for ongoing service and support is second to none. We have designed and manufactured machines since 1978, producing quality equipment for steel frame construction worldwide under our proprietary FRAMA machine brand.

Our steel framing machines place all punching and fixing holes through accurate computer control. This not only allows frames and trusses to be manufactured with extreme precision, but enables the frame to be self-locating and jigging.

Howick frame machines have been specifically designed for frame manufacturers and can be fed data from any partnered CAD framing package. The equipment is available complete with an open language (CSV) control system.
