About us

Delivering pioneering bespoke structures for over 27 years

We’re a family business based in Erlestoke, Wiltshire, with many long term clients including blue chip industrial companies alongside other businesses, schools and a variety of educational and sports organisations.

We offer a full turnkey service covering every aspect, including planning assistance, internal facilities, surfaces and finance options.

All our structures meet building standards, require no additional or minimal groundworks in many cases and are quickly deployable.

Years delivering bespoke structures


Robin Colenso founded CopriSystems in February 1989, after originally entering the industry through the establishment of an international haulage company.

After being impressed by the retractable canopy concept at a trade show, Robin helped to develop and expand the product range to address the needs of industries ranging from industrial to education



Robin’s son, Rafe worked from the nuts and bolts of the company up, starting as a labourer in school holidays, continuing as a labourer and forklift driver after school, helping to get to know the product and the industry further.  

Rafe bought the company from his father in 2009 and has now been in the industry for near on 20 years providing him with a huge amount of experience. Rafe  is not deterred by any project, situation or issue. 


In Rafe’s time in charge, he’s developed the bespoke approach to better meet the needs of clients and expanded the service to include structures for agricultural buildings and event domes.

The company is expanding year on year thanks to incredible customer loyalty and a growing reputation for bespoke solutions and customer service. The team at CopriSystems is growing too and will shortly be moving into new offices to accommodate the growth moving forward.


All our structures meet building standards and we’re long term members of a number of industry bodies including Altius, Alem and SAPCA.
