Tornado’s story begins back in 1969, when the company evolved from a farming enterprise in Scotland into a fence contracting business. Throughout the 1970s and early 1980s, Tornado’s innovative approach led to a number of firsts in the industry; we began erecting permanent electric fencing, installing high tensile line wire fencing, manufacturing patented droppers for high tensile line wire fencing, and importing high tensile net fences from New Zealand.

Then, in 1982, Tornado became the first fencing company to manufacture high tensile steel wire fencing in the UK. Our heritage in the fencing industry had given us a unique understanding of how great fencing needs to perform, and we have taken great pride ever since in sharing the hands-on fencing experience of our team with our customers (and their customers).

Tornado is now widely recognised as the high tensile fencing manufacturer – we produce the highest quality fencing that provides maximum protection with minimum lifetime costs; after all, a great fence that doesn’t need constant repair or replacement is far more cost-effective than a cheap and (not so) cheerful fence that becomes a constant drain on labour, materials, cost and effort.

Above all, our customers are at the heart of everything we do – we are happy when our customers are happy. Our approach to achieving this is remarkably simple; we’ll help you pick the best fence for your needs, manufactured to the best quality, backed up by the best advice.

If you need a fence, talk to the fencing people.

Here at Tornado, it’s not just the quality of our fencing that sets us apart; a founding and lasting principle of our culture is the knowledge that great people do a great job…this has been recognised and rewarded with our 2015 Investors In People Gold Award; a reflection of the investment we make into the Tornado team.

We are delighted and proud to have received IIP Gold. Everything we do is about high quality and we would find it impossible to maintain the consistent high standards we set ourselves without the support of a well-trained, motivated and empowered workforce. This award is a testament to all their hard work.
