A 24x7 Service

Our recent relocation and expansion of premises has equipped us with a fully equipped sheet metal fabrication shop that enables us to offer our clients a 24x7 service.

This ensures that we can produce custom made, finished products whenever needed to meet tight deadlines.

Service to Tight Deadlines

We provide a 24 hourt maintenance service to vessels throughout the commercial marine industry. This allows us to help minimise disruption to scheduled sailings.

Where "class" approval allows, ongoing works can be carried out during commercial sailings.

A Wide Range of Experience

Our ongoing experience with the Royal Fleet Auxilliary and Ministry of Defence vessels has involved our working closely with other shipbuilding and shiprepair disciplines.

We have a comprehensive Quality Management System in place compliant to the ISO 9001:2008 standard and successfully achieving UKAS accreditation in 2004.

Our in depth knowledge and experience in the marine insulation industry - particularly high temperature exhaust insulation and personnel protection - have enabled us to resolve specific issues.

This has enabled us to continue to provide solutions to the upgraded Lloyds flammable fluid SOLAS requirements.
