My firm, G. J. Binding & Sons, was established in 1920 by my grandfather, and since 1940 has been associated with Trinity House Lighthouse Authority assisting with maintenance of seamarks and carrying out hydrographic surveys around the coasts of England and Wales.
G. J. Binding & Sons have been using T. Nielsen & Company since 1991 to carry out the annual dry docking of our vessels Lucia – a wooden 23 metre North Sea Trawler – and Mair – a steel 25 metre Admiralty Fleet tender. Tommi Nielsen and his team carried out substantial necessary modifications to both vessels including the fitting of cranes, bow thrusters, survey equipment and generators.
We soon learned that the work produced by the shipyard was of extremely high quality carried out efficiently and methodically by a group of friendly and helpful operatives trained in a variety of skills. No problem, however difficult, has beaten T. Nielsen & Company and the required work has been carried out to a deadline which has always been met. If it has been necessary to undertake work at our base port, Barry, T. Nielsen & Company have unhesitatingly brought equipment by road to get us out of trouble at very short notice.
All work carried out is fairly priced and as a matter of interest I have never bothered to obtain a quotation for proposed work before they arrive. This is the only firm we deal with that I can say that for.
I would not hesitate to recommend T. Nielsen & Company for any type of work on any type of vessel. We would use no one else.
