1971 Frank Hauck began a small fabrication business within the confines of his own garage at his home in Royton.
1972 Frank was joined by his brother John and together they moved the business to the basement, of 'Napier Mill' on Ellen Street, Oldham. Later accompanied by his youngest son, Karl, they began to slowly expand the business, taking on larger projects, along with the small metal fabrications they were used to. The first major installation being a pair of sliding doors, for the boiler house at the Royal Oldham Hospital, built in 1974 and still in use today.
1977 The company became limited trading under its new name 'F & J Hauck Ltd'. With its increasing number of employees out grew the former premises and moved to its present location at Linney Lane, Shaw. Not long after the move his eldest son, Franz, joined the family business. Then throughout the late 70's and 80's the company became a major supplier of fabricated components, mainly for the commercial vehicle market, but also during this period, the company became involved in balustrade work, for the construction industry.
1990+ The business continued to expand during the 90's, it slowly moved away from the commercial vehicle market and whilst continuing work in general fabrications, began undertaking more projects in architectural metalwork. With further demands being made on specialist balustrade work, the company commenced fabricating in other metals, such as stainless steel, brass and aluminum.
