About the employer

The history of Dalton Farrow Designs Limited dates back to 1986 when the company was established by current Senior Directors Ivan Dalton & Lee Farrow. Their aim was to offer a high quality, multi-disciplined design service to the automotive and tooling industries and 1994 saw the expansion into the subsea sector. The business soon began to flourish, and has continued to go from strength to strength, providing services and developing long term partnerships with a variety of companies. The Millenium saw Ivan & Lee’s sons join the business, who have since become Junior Directors in order to carry the company forward, maintaining the same high standards that our clients expect and receive.
