Defence Division

Our Defence department supplies a wide range of lifting, rigging and chandlery items to the Defence industry. We also work with UK and International governments directly and through prime subcontractors and original equipment manufacturers.

Our Defence team has extensive technical expertise in both the naval vessel field and shore based lifting equipment and rigging applications. With a broad range of products for you to select from, we are able to supply single components, manufactured assemblies and turnkey packages up to and including complete rigging warrant for warships. This includes a full range of RAS transfer, jackstays and mooring applications, as well as tooling for general and damage control uses.

Our technical experts can advise on the supply of items coded to NATO stock numbers as well as commercial off the shelf alternatives. To deliver a comprehensive service, our engineering team can carry out rigging work on site, including the erection, maintenance and repair of assault course obstacles for both the armed services and outdoor adventure establishments.

We manufacture and assemble a wide range of products to NATO stock number designation. These include wire rope and chain assemblies for use by the UK MOD and other NATO clients. We also manufacture and supply a wide range of sheave blocks for navy applications, utilising materials such as Tufnol (SRBF), steel,
