If you require any type of specialist vehicle, modular transportable unit or have a specialist engineering need then let our team of experienced engineers and highly skilled craftsmen take your concept through from the design phase and bring your ideas to life.

With over 1000 years of company service amongst our current employees we have developed unrivalled levels of quality and attention to fine detail.

Within our 5200m2 factory you will find a concentration of design, engineering skills and commitment to excellence. We have production space (16+ production bays) and an established supply chain to manufacture large one off, multiple or single projects at any one time.

Typically, each project is approached with 7 production phases which are planned in detail to ensure your product is delivered on time every time. Detailed product design, fabrication, assembly and main construction, electrical and mechanical installation, painting, internal finishing, testing and pre delivery inspection.

Every project has a dedicated team blending years of ASGB training and a proven supply chain to manufacture your finished product to your delivery point and far beyond. Each of our trades will work very closely with you and alongside each other to complete the build in harmony and to your satisfaction.
