Their expertise in producing, repairing and refurbishing large components has established a reputation as a problem-solving precision-engineering Company, where the technical capability and reliability of their service is vital, and mistakes are costly.
They have an excellent reputation for adopting and pioneering new technologies. They devise efficient ways of engineering solutions to new specifications and problems, often taking on work too demanding for other firms.
