I did this when I had to make a case for my Master, went to their shop and could look around and choose on the spot.
They were very friendly and helpful, I had my case in less then 14 hours!

It has been a while since I have been in Britain, but when I was, I did a lot of business with CP Cases.
Sixteen years ago, I would really recommend them!
Anyway, here's their info:

I can highly recommend CP cases, however you may find it quite expensive for them to make custom foam inserts as it is all CNC and there will be a 'programming' charge per different design.
If pick-n-pluck is not your scene then look for a 'foam-converter' - that is the general name for foam guys. They usually hang out in a cold industrial unit in the back-of-beyond with HUGE pile of foam, a big bandsaw and a 'hot-wire'...
The type of 'foam' used is often called LD18-45 or Plastazote.
