This work extends to Engineering design, Feasibility studies, upgrade work (Engineering, Budget costing, preparation of project documents, etc).

Our main area of expertise is in cranes and lifting gear, from small specialised lifting beams to overhead electric cranes. We have also completed various train maintenance systems involving jacking system for the removal and maintenance of train bogies.
