Site Services

From transformers to switchgear to generators to structures to cables. Working in indoor and open-air substations. We cover all sizes, voltages and locations within the UK mainland. This includes work alongside live circuits with the controls to ensure it is completed safely.

Support Services

The good work completed on site is only as good as its support network behind the scenes. John Robson Metals has developed over the years a detailed support infrastructure which helps aid progress on site and innovate our methodologies to improve safety, reduce risk and reduce potential environmental impact.

Environmental Services

Reducing the impact on the local, national and global environment is priority for John Robson Metals. Part of our role is to ensure that the sites owned by our clients are not impacted by our works. We also aim to reuse or recycle up to 90% of waste generated from our activities on site.
