  • sourcing appropriate materials factoring in seagoing integrity, usage and corrosion control
  • design and drafting
  • fabrication cutting and folding of 316 SS
  • GTAW (TIG ) detailed welding
  • blasting and in-house epoxy spray paint system to Defence specifications
  • coating and finishing-off stowage units in signal red in our spray booth as requested by client

Works were completed to the satisfaction of Defence OQE requirements for all concerned.
