We can provide experienced, marine engineers, lifting specialists, mechanical fitters, welders, electricians, or any other skilled tradesmen within hours of your call.  Engineers will come to meet your vessel or you may prefer to visit one of our facilities on the Tyne or the Tees. Either way, we aim to provide a speedy and professional service to the high standard associated with A&P.

Typical type of work undertaken;

  • Steel modifications &repair

Along with our ability to come to your location, we also are able to provide riding squads should you require work be completed on the move.  In addition we operate two world class facilities in North East England.

Our facilities in Teesside are located adjacent to one of the busiest ports in Europe on the River Tees. The facility consists of 240m of jetty frontage and a gas berth bay, 2 dry docks, fabrication, fitting, pipe production and joinery shops with the capacity to accommodate the most demanding vessel-related works.

On the Tyne we boast two deep water berths, including the recently built ‘West Quay’ – 100m in length with a load bearing capacity of 10t per square metre – the largest commercial dry-dock on the east coast of England, and a significant modern fabrication facility complete with panel line, rolling, plasma and gas burning machines, which are complemented by a highly skilled and flexible workforce.

There is extensive storage and load-out capability at both sites, with fully equipped workshops covering all trades required to carry out projects from relatively simple ship repair to major complex ship conversions.

The region is known for its marine related activity and therefore we have an excellent subcontractor base tosupport all the modern day ship-owners requirements. Wherever the assistance may be required we are able to dispatch engineers to undertake any afloat job required to get a vessel back underway with the minimal amount of disruption,

Don’t just take our word, see what some of our customers have to say;

Ship manager – “Thank you for your expert help on our vessel; you may say that it is part of your job, but frankly you went the extra mile for us and that is appreciated.

Superintendant – “I would like to thank you very much for the hard work and fine craftsmanship by you and your guys during the last few weeks, Also the cooperation and flexibility was well appreciated.”
