We are in a location that is both logistically ideal and cost effective for all of your projects both on and offshore. L/E/F prides itself on providing high levels of service to an industry that never stops and is always changing. We have a prime quayside location where our facilities include workshops and storage areas totalling 14,607m2. This includes one of the largest fabrication workshops and also a purpose built blast and coating facility. These facilities enable us to provide a doorstep service for all of your projects.

Join Our Team!

We are based on the Shetland Islands which is at the very North of Scotland - the very gateway to Northern North Sea, the Atlantic frontier and now not only the West of Shetland oil and gas exploration areas but the Norwegian Sectors as well. Our Workshops and storage areas cover over 14,607sqm and are situated within the Greenhead Base in Lerwick with convenient quayside access for easy load out of fabricated structures.

L/E/F are always driving forward to improve not only the diversity of our service's but also our staff with first class expert training both locally and throughout the UK. This enables us to always guarantee the highest quality of work.

We strongly believe that to get the best possible results you need to have the best trained staff. That is why year on year we are always looking to employ new apprentice’s not only in welding and fabrication but in engineering and protective coatings too. We are constantly reviewing our training records and are always looking for new areas in which we can train and progress our employee's skillset.
