About Us

Since 1988 we have been at the forefront of technology in the sheet metal fabrication industry.

In recent years we have specialised mainly in Architectural Cladding panel fabrication.

When Ray Fleming formed the company, he had already been in the business for ten years, working for a software company near his home town of Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk, England.  Ray saw the huge potential in the market and left to set up Fleming Software to provide software and services to companies with sheet metal production facilities.

Thanks to Carl Parnell for the great photo.

The company is wholly owned and run by members of the Fleming family, leading to strong client relationships and a personal service where Fleming Software is often described as “part of the team” rather than just a “supplier”.

Many of the loyal client base have been with Fleming Software for many years and retention rates are the envy of most businesses.

Since 1991, Fleming Software has been based in St Andrew’s Castle in Bury St Edmunds, a beautiful market town in Suffolk in the East of England, whose history dates back to 903ad where it became the burial place of St Edmund.

Ray Fleming

Managing Director

Ray founded the company in 1988 and is still the inspiration and driving force behind its development.  The reason the software is so attuned to the requirements of today’s panel industry is Ray’s unrivalled knowledge through with industry partners over many years.

Ray is still the development lead within the business and making sure that PanelWizz is always setting the agenda for software in the industry.  

In his spare time, Ray enjoys walking, playing the guitar and spending time with his grandchildren. He typically walks about fifty miles a week and often says that his best ideas for the software come to him when he is out walking!

Georgina Shannon

Financial Controller

Georgina is Ray’s daughter and joined the family business in 2016 as Financial Controller.

Having worked in the Finance sector for several years, she has a Diploma in Business Accounting and has now joined the family firm to take responsibility for the financial management of the business. She also looks after the legal and contractual side and is the first point of call for customers for all non-software related matters.

In her spare time Georgina practices yoga & meditation, is a bit of a “film buff” and loves stand-up comedy.  She also likes baking and spending time with her family.

Hugh Tracy-Forster FCMA

Business Development Manager

Hugh is a qualified Accountant by profession but has been involved in software sales, implementations and support for over twenty five years. In his earlier career, he worked in senior financial roles in GEC/Marconi, Avis and Shell.

Responsible for new business sales and all marketing, Hugh also looks after our Reseller Partners and finds more to join the network. He also makes lots of “helpful” suggestions to Ray on new functionality he would like to see added to the software! 

Hugh loves Test Cricket, good food and wine, and is a dreadful “boy’s toys” geek! Having lived in East Anglia for over 20 years, he still takes every opportunity to get “home” to Liverpool to see family and friends.

Cornel Ghinga

North America Consultant

Cornel’s first contact with Fleming Software was in 2007 when he found the Fleming Software website, loved the software and got the company he was working for to purchase it.  They are now one of Fleming Software’s longest standing clients.

Cornel left to start up his own consultancy business and has many clients in the industry in North America as well as co-ordinating much of Fleming’s North American operations.

Living in Ontario in Canada, Cornel manages a lot of the implementations of PanelWizz in North America. He also provides 1st Line Support to many of the clients as, in many cases, he recommended Fleming Software to them and did the initial implementation and training.
