Our industrial painting services
We have proven experience of working in critical environments, painting towers, substations and gas infrastructure for electricity and gas transmission and distribution network owners and communication masts for blue light services.
We can also provide complete care for your utility assets, installing and renew anti-climbing devices along with safety signs and information plates and step-bolt replacements.

Providing innovation to deliver you value
There's always a new way to do something. The continuous release of new technology allows us to discover new ways to provide a more efficient service whilst saving you money at the same time.
Some of the innovations we have delivered:
- smart pens and works mobile apps - delivering increased efficiency, real-time visibility of works progress and quality assurance whilst simultaneously reducing our carbon footprint
- GoPro cameras - video cameras worn on helmets, enhancing quality assurance processes and reducing your physical audit requirements, and
- antifungal washes and fungi removing brushes - improving safety, effectiveness and delivering cost savings.
A highly trained workforce
We believe that a highly trained workforce means a highly engaged and motivated workforce. We're members of the Industrial Coating Applicator Training Scheme (ICATS) and are accredited to train our workforce as coating applicator operatives.
We also have our own trainee programme, training up new starters in the industry so that there are more skilled workers out there. All our site managers have more than 20 years' experience.
Who do we provide industrial painting for?
We have delivered substantial works across England and Wales, for clients such as:
- the National Grid
- Cadent Gas
- Balfour Beatty, and
- various police forces.
We have painted more than a million square metres of steelworks over the past four years, usually in safety-critical environments with poor access and in hazardous and corrosive settings.
Our projects range from one off jobs, such as being the first contractor to paint National Grid's new T-pylon, to incredibly complex jobs, such as painting the two tallest electricity transmission towers in the UK which stand at 187m tall, span the Thames estuary at the Dartford Tunnel and are sited alongside a factory classified as an upper tier COMAH (Control of Major Accident Hazards) site. The 400 kilovolt (kV) electricity cables carried by the towers remained live throughout the job.
