We have also been busy with the local fishing industry by designing & fabricating systems for lobster potting as well as the general repairs and fabrications for the fleet. We are also happy to do any type of mild steel fabrications we have space for larger projects, and offer a basic machining service. We are always proud of our fabrications using any materials please study our gallery to see what we could do for you.
M C Rive has undertaken many projects over the years for a wide range of industries, CAD drawing has evolved as a useful design tool.
