IMES started in 2014 in the South West of England. Initially offering general fabrications and industrial repairs, they later branched into heavy civil works including railways and more extensive infrastructures such as bridges, water treatment facilities, recycling facilities and docks. At these locations, IMES carried out services within the scope of general repair and refurbishment. They found themselves focusing on their current primary services, management, metal surface preparation, painting, welding, and fabrication over this period. IMES ran these alongside some smaller and more bespoke services such as historic hot riveting, specialist paint coatings, and historic structures’ refurbishment.
Over the past five years, IMES have further developed their services working for high profile clients such as Her Majesty’s Royal Navy, Air Force and the Army. They carry out various services for them from blasting and painting water-based assets, right through to refurbishing large aircraft hangars and training facilities.
This has substantially developed the company to achieve a higher standard of work across the board due to the rigorous systems and procedures necessary to adhere to the client’s specific requirements.
