Established in the mid 1940's by engineers Alfred Nicholas and Jack Craven, Craven & Nicholas (Engineering) Ltd was incorporated in 1948 as a general engineering company.

The company soon established itself as one of South Lincolnshire's leading engineering firms and supplier of agricultural steel frame buildings and structural steelwork. Among the many notable construction projects was the original footbridge over the river Witham and the Boston United football stand.
