Facilities & Services

With decades of fabrication experience within the nuclear and petrochemical industries, we are able to offer services such as welding, cutting, forming, machining, inspection and non-destructive testing, working with a wide array of materials in thicknesses ranging from 0.5mm upwards. To protect the mechanical integrity of the materials we work with, we have four workstations on our site; Stainless Steel, Carbon, Machining and a recently reconditioned Pickling and Passivating shop.
