Canal Engineering Limited | An Insight into our Company
As part of the family owned John Lord Group, Canal Engineering enjoys the enthusiastic support and financial backing of a fifth generation business celebrating over 100 years of dedication to business enterprise.
All drawing, manufacture, fabrication and installation is completed by Canal Engineering employees. Having in-house structural engineering consultants also means they can offer design help and advice from the very early stages of any metalwork project.
