OEM support

We have built up an excellent reputation working both nationally and internationally for defence centric OEMs. With offices and workshops inside bothHMNB’s Portsmouth and Devonport we offer unrivalled access to both footprints. We have tremendous experience in the support of OEMs via:

  • Hybrid working; i.e. being part of the OEMs own team, wearing their overalls
  • and adhering to their working practices.
  • Supporting OEMs with the provision of labour and / or project management.
  • Assisting as a support partner to help manage workload surge.
  • Providing additional expertise to allow OEMs to offer the end user turnkey
  • pricing; i.e. we’ll provide access and fleeting whilst the OEM covers the install.

As a business we cover all aspects of OEM support, to include (but not be limited to), the provision of mechanical engineers, structural engineers, welder/fabricators, marine fitters, engineering foreman, technical managers, draftsmen and superintendents. Teams can deploy globally and we’ve recently sent personnel to the Middle East, Eastern Mediterranean, the Caribbean and the Far East. We support OEMs across many sectors including marine grade fabrication, main and ancillary engineering and propulsion, electrical, pipe and hydraulics manufactures,lifts and safety equipment; in summary we provide truly globally support to any defence (or marine) centric OEM that needs additional resource.
