Heavy Industry

Heavy Industry

Working in the heart of Teesside it was natural that we would develop a regular client base within the oil and steel industry. Intelect have a proven track record working in heavy industries, working alongside British Steel, Tata Steel and Corus, specialising in building and installing new process lines both in the UK and Europe. 

We are a multi-disciplined company, with all the expertise in house to run projects from design to completion.

Control panels and electrical refurbishment

Intelect design, manufacture and supply control panels, drives and distribution MCC, PLC control cubicle drivers, control desk and access gate safety panels with high-reliability for manless automation in harsh environments.

Machining and fabrication

Machining, fabricating and refurbishing parts and equipment for use in heavy industry generally means, everything is on a much larger and heavier scale, however, the attention to detail and engineering tolerances remain just as important as on any other job. We have invested heavily in the skills and equipment in order to meet these demands.

We are regularly called on to repair, refurbish or reverse engineer parts for heavy plant machinery and equipment and we pride ourselves on our ability to deliver both on time and within budget.
