Our history in bespoke design and manufacture of reliable high-quality mechanical handling systems began in 1965. Since then, our skill, experience and manufacturing capability with electric, pneumatic and hydraulic-control machines has benefited customers from small business through to multi-nationals.

Products include ROV handling systems, winches, power packs, cranes, A-frames, goods lifts, elevators, conveyors, pressure vessels, carousels, cable engines and purpose designed machines. Around 75% is for the offshore sector, a substantial amount being exported.

We are able to design using 3D solid modelling and finite element analysis as well as more traditional approaches. Projects can start with a feasibility study undertaken with the customer and lead to construction within our facility or overseas manufacture. Strict quality control maintains the high standard of workmanship that has earned the company its reputation and brings in repeat business.

ISO 9001:2000 accredited, we welcome inspection and survey from customers or 3rd parties at any time. We are a flexible company, often tailoring our approach to suit customer requirements. As well as our own drawings, we manufacture to customer drawings, install, commission, inspect, service and refurbish both our own and other manufacturers equipment.

The increasing demand for deep-sea oil-exploration has accentuated our involvement in the following;

  • ROV launch and recovery systems
  • Sub-sea docking devices
  • Power packs for hazardous areas
  • Rope and cable handling
  • Subsea pipe alignment systems
  • Subsea camera handling equipment
  • Low-headroom and special purpose cranes

We offer a comprehensive range of winches, cranes and hoists, many for use in hazardous environments. As a dedicated design team we can find practical and workable solutions to mechanical handling problems. One-off projects are taken on with confidence and experience, coupled with enthusiasm for design challenges. The company remains dedicated to the provision of world-wide after-sales care with on-site back up available.
