About the employer

Langtons (Northallerton) Ltd was a local ironmongers and blacksmith working for mainly the farming community, specialising in agricultural machinery and milking equipment installations.

This business was acquired by Walter Thompson in 1961 and following the move to its new premises on Finkills Way, Northallerton in 1975, the company then started to develop the steel fabrication side of the business to sit alongside its thriving agricultural engineering work.

The company added construction site equipment to its manufacturing facilities in the mid-1990s, and the company can trace its origins back to 1830 when it operated a forge and ironworks business on Friarage Street, Northallerton.

In 2018 Langton’s moved to a purpose-built facility on Thurston Road, Northallerton and continues to provide structural steel and products to the construction industry.
