Frequently Asked Questions
Questions and answers about our services:
What are your principal products or services and what is unique about them?
How do you measure their success?
We are a company who provide blast cleaning and paint coating systems as service to a broad and varied customer base from our premises or on-site with mobile operations. Our unique position is our refined capabilities, honed over twenty five years, with a loyal workforce that can overcome the most challenging projects. The fire on the Cutty Sark in 2007, set one of these challenges. The Trust recognised our capabilities and we won the contract against many large companies to restore the vessel. This was due to our technical abilities in the field of blast cleaning and paint coating processes. The Trust were absolutely delighted with the restoration when the main body of the ship was completed in 2009.
As a result of our work we were invited to carry out trials on another national heritage project, HMS Warrior, and a major environmental project at the Dartford Barrier. Proudly, we were also invited to paint the fully automated ICI Dulux factory at Stowmarket, (paint the paint factory!) where we also managed the whole project. We measure our success both on the higher level of challenges provided and our continuing ability to fully satisfy an increasingly broader customer base with ever higher levels of technological coating products. As an example we have developed and refined the process of installing a tank lining on the base of large liquid storage tanks used in oil refineries and bulk storage facilities. This has prolonged the life of the floors by over 15 years saving the industry millions of pounds in replacement costs. This is seen as large growth potential for the business along with other specialist activity areas.
