Our Story

Starting out in 1975 as Merseyside Coatings and based in Birkenhead, Wirral we have grown to be one of the largest blasting and painting contractors in the UK and we have seen some of the UK's best known projects pass through our gates in the last 45 years.

Our head office is based in Widnes, Cheshire where you will find our 60,000sqft facility and our mobile blast and paint teams are continually working around the UK and Europe on varying sites across multiple sectors.

At the core we are a family business, but we strive every day to work along side some of the biggest contractors, working on the largest and most prestigious construction and engineering schemes.
