Vessco Engineering Ltd

Vessco uses its experience in pressure vessels manufacture to fabricate similarly sized complementary products.

Industrial & General Manufacturing

Vessco pressure systems and general fabrications are used in a range of industrial and manufacturing sectors. Our clients operate in many light and heavy industrial markets around the world. Over the years we have designed a number of non-standard applications to meet the requirements of specific projects.

Innovative Design

Designing for unusual applications takes an innovative approach to problem-solving. Vessco have developed flexible design routines and tools to supplement the more traditional routes such as ASME and PD5500.

Where relevant, these routines are supported by a library of Finite Element Analysis records to ensure our equipment is designed safely, and for the best possible service life.
