Capabilities

MKW is a ISO9001 registered company and has been since 1988. The range of our facilities covered within this registration are fabrication, welding, sheetmetal work, CNC machining, painting and the building of special purpose machinery.

We started business as a fabrication company, before expanding further into machining, when CNC machines and precision milling, boring and turning machines were acquired. Our capacity was then further increased by the introduction of a sheetmetal shop including CNC Punching and a paint shop. 

Today, in short, we fabricate, weld, machine, inspect, paint and assemble smaller batches and even one-offs in-house. By being proactive and quick to respond to the specific needs of every project, we are seen as a strategic supplier and a valuable partner for our customers.
