Our history

Established in 1985, we work with clients in the most demanding operational environments. Our team of specialists are used to working with exotic materials and provide a range of performance enhancing coatings and overlays.

Our in-house grinding capabilities, including grinding and NDT, significantly reduce our lead time, and we operate a LEAN culture, which ensures on-time delivery. We’re proud of our manufacturing process integrity – we can certify and trace all the materials that we use.

We build long-term relationships with our clients and are a trusted supplier to major OEMs in oil and gas, petrochemical, water and other critical industries, where the repair and refurbishment of components can be costly and challenging.
