Bespoke One-offs

Short Runs

Offering a custom forging service optimising your manufacturing process

Trialing a new material for a new or existing product?

Custom forge solutions are the gateway to innovation and excellence. Whether you need support with designing, manufacturing or supplying bespoke custom forged products, we are the right choice for you. Our team of custom forging experts at Somers can help you to realise your vision, no matter how intricate or exceptional.

Prototype Custom Forge Solutions

Do you have a groundbreaking idea or a prototype that’s ready to take your market by storm? Here at Somers Forge, we specialise in turning your concepts into reality.

Our prototype custom forge solutions empower innovators to test, refine, and perfect their designs with confidence that can only be supplied by precision custom forging.


Changing method of manufacture?

We are commonly asked to take items that are traditionally closed die forgings and explore the feasibility of manufacturing the component as an open die forging. Often this is because of the many enhancements such as improved grain structure or no longer having the original tooling, therefore, making open die the more cost-effective route.

Custom Forgings


Every industry has its own unique requirements, and not all projects fit into one standard mould. Here at Somers Forge, we excel in crafting bespoke one-offs and short runs of custom forged products that are tailored to your individual needs. Whether you’re looking for a specialised part, a limited edition run, or a product with distinct characteristics, we are the right choice for your next project.

When you choose our custom forge solutions, you’re not confined by pre-existing designs. Instead, you have the freedom to create products that are tailored to your exact specifications. This opens limitless possibilities, allowing you to explore new markets and cater to niche demands.

While uniqueness is a defining characteristic of bespoke one-offs and short runs of custom forge solutions, efficiency and cost-effectiveness are equally vital. We’ve optimised our processes to ensure that you receive high-quality, custom forgings without breaking the bank. This way, you can explore new markets and experiment with your new designs with confidence.

Our  ‘One Complete Forging Solution’ is done in house and involve these four key components:

  • Forging – We have both a light and heavy forge, which allows us to cater to almost any shape or size.                                                                                                                                          
  • Heat Treatment – We continue to evolve our technology and techniques and offer wide range of heat treatments.                                                                                                         
  • Machining – With our onsite machine shop we offer items in multiple machined conditions, including fully finished forgings.                                                                                   
  • Testing – All our tests are carried out to European, ASTM standards and third-party inspections, so you will never need to worry about the quality of your products.
