We are a family-run fabrication and engineering company based near Walkerburn in the Scottish borders. The business began with Raymond starting up by himself around 30 years ago. Darren and Dalton, his two sons, joined the business 21 years and 9 years ago respectively having completed apprenticeships and are both fully qualified welders. We specialise in forestry and plant repairs, both onsite around the UK and in our own workshop. We also offer services such as welding and fabrication, plasma profiling and line boring.
Steel plate cutting
The recent purchase of a Hypertherm 200maxpro plasma unit, coupled with the Escco CNC table enables us to severance cut 75mm steel plate, profile 1-60mm steel plate in sheet sizes up to 1.5mx3m. We can cut aluminium and stainless metal to various thicknesses.
Using metal fabrication design software, we are able to create shapes, designs and also trace templates using the built-in scanning camera. Our line boring service also allows us to repair worn bores/holes from 30mm-400mm in diameter utilising our two machines. Our company also offers bore face repairs by building up worn areas with weld and boring back to original size. We also use over size bushes to create the correct size collinear bores.
Forestry Contractors Repairs & Maintenance
We provide our forestry repair and maintenance services across many of Britain’s largest forestry contractors as well as leading dealers in forestry machinery such as John Deere Forestry UK and Tigercat Forestry UK. Our work involves carrying out fabrication to our customers’ requests, much of which is bespoke. This can be from forestry spec digger guarding, winches and skyline booms, digger buckets and attachments, general strengthening of failed parts and strengthening of parts to prevent failure.
