About Us

portsmouth-harbourFor over 30 years, ML (UK) has provided steel fabrication, welding and structural engineering services from our base in Portsmouth Harbour on the South Coast. As we grew in our early years, we found we needed a central location to be able to make or repair anything that came our way. So, we moved into Kettering Terrace and equipped ourselves with everything we required from giant rollers, benders and guillotines to large lathes and lifting equipment as well as a 40 tonne crawler crane.

The management team have over 200 years combined experience and can solve any engineering, fabrication, construction or repair problems you may have. With our full workshop facilities, we are equipped for contracts of all sizes from the sharpening of tools to on-site structural steelwork for major shipping or construction projects.
