Skills and Qualifications

As a company we are constantly looking to improve the skills of our staff by investing in them and carrying out regular training to ensure that we have some of the best quality people possible. Being a small company on the island with limited resources, it is essential that all of our guys and girls are multi skilled staff, trained and proficient in more than one area.


Our friendly and knowledgeable project managers will support and lead your job from beginning to end efficiently and effectively whilst maintaining communication, tight cost control and maximum safety at all times.

In our opinion we have some of the best welder/fabricators around. All of our tradesmen are multi skilled guys who can both fabricate and weld, they carry out various different types of welding including but not limited to MMA, MIG, FCAW, TIG on all materials. All of our welders carry various coding’s that allows them to be flexible and adaptive to the majority of process’s including ASME, AWS etc. If we don’t have a procedure you require we can quickly and cost effectively arrange for the testing’s to be carried out to your specification. They are all trained in arc air gouging and flame cutting giving them the full package.

Our fitters have various types of experience from mechanical to marine, boiler and valve refurbishment to pressure testing. They are flexible and can adapt to any project you require. We have fitters on long term projects at sites across the island who are happy to share their expertise with the clients at all times.

We have two welding inspectors who are qualified to CSWIP standard. They ensure the quality of welding carried out is to the best standard possible. They can also carry out inspection offsite as well as on site at any times that suits yourselves.

We have OPITO trained blaster and painters who have a fine attention to detail, they have knowledge of multiple coating systems ranging from basic paints right through to subsea systems. We have used most systems for the oil and gas and can cater for all types of painting and blasting applications. We are the only facility currently offering metal spray applications and our staff are very knowledgeable in this area. We carry out inspection in house and currently have one of our employees going through the NACE program to ensure we are always producing quality works.

We regularly have apprentices working on apprentice schemes here at LEF, we believe in training our staff to make sure they are of the highest standard they can be. We work in conjunction with a local training provider and also have a relationship with a current training provider on the mainland so have all areas covered.
