We are equipped to attend site, carry out an inspection, provide a full report with suitable advice and carry out any repairs or remedial works. Expert care is taken in the research of every component to ensure it is exactly in line with what is required. Alternatively, we can remove the job to our workshops at Cromford, Nr Matlock. We can also take care of logistics for you. Large or heavy artefacts are easily transported to / from site using our own crane lorry and all our large scale tooling is fully transportable.
