Our roots go all the way back to 1879, however the company's current incarnation was founded on Newcastle Upon Tyne's bustling quayside in the mid 1960's. Whilst the intervening years have seen much structural change, our business has continue to expand across the country, while remaining UK family owned. With a policy of recruiting from local talent, supplemented in key roles by the best talent in the industry we believe our service level is first class.

In the early years of the business we were closely partnered with Shipbuilding and Repair, Power Generation and Transformer Manufacture as well as Coal Mining and Railway Industries.
