Established in 1994, Wilton have achieved unparalleled success specialising in designing, manufacturing, coating and loading out large complicated structures for the Offshore Oil & Gas, Subsea, Marine, Decommissioning and Offshore Wind Industries.

We’re based adjacent to the River Tees on our 54 acre Offshore Construction facility having some of the largest construction halls in the UK which are supported with equally impressive blasting, coating and loadout capabilities giving rise to the fact that Wilton is the go to company for “World Class” fabrications.


For over 30 years Wilton have developed a high level of capability, delivering bespoke specialist subsea projects utilising our design, fabrication, and loadout expertise.


Wilton have utilised our expertise from the Oil & Gas sector of building a vast array of large complicated fabricated structures and have diversified into the renewable market.


Wilton take pride in offering a Multi-Discipline support service to projects which are seen as highly challenging in terms of large, bespoke, complex Marine Structures.


Our facility was used to manufacture around 50% of all North Sea topside modules and as such as part of a full life cycle the facility can be utilised to destruct or recycle these modules for further use.


For over 20 years Wilton has supplied the Oil & Gas sector with a vast array of large complicated fabricated structures for the topside market.


Since its inception in 1999 Universal has enjoyed systematic sustained growth year on year and has gained enormous respect for its high integrity surface preparation and coating.




Safety is of vital importance and is engrained within our DNA. It’s our duty to protect all stakeholders including our senior management team, workforce, clients, subcontractors, and visitors, whilst we fully understand the need to continually invest in training at all level for all stakeholders.

The outstanding quality of work is a testament to the entire workforce who tirelessly adhere strictly to all the manufacturing specifications and codes and by following a continuous improvement ethos we consistently deliver quality projects.
