Early History

Craig Engineering started in 1986, by current MD and Founder Member Curtiss Craig, whose previous background of knowledge and experience in managing the design and manufacture of complex aluminium structures within the field of bespoke access gantries and platforms, had given him sound experience and a good reputation within the access industry - this became the catalyst for launching Craig Engineering Total Access Systems Ltd.
