The size of the blast and paint facility allows for large volume throughput and due to the location this can be performed 24 hours a day 7 days a week without interference or disturbance with surrounding neighbours. The large size of our hard stand is very beneficial for allowing our clients to store their products both before and after processing allowing them to overcome unscheduled delays in their planed project delivery times.
