On the 15th May, Baker & Provan launched its new website and social pages; Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin. "Its been a long time coming. The old website has served us well but now it's time to modernise and also improve our social presence" said General Manager, Bob Findlay. As we move forward, more content will find its way on to the website to improve overall experience. 

Davit Support

Inspecting our quality workmanship onsite, Baker & Provan continue their relationship with the OEM's to be preferred support provider for Davits installed on the LHD and FFG naval vessels. We not only offer onsite service, we also remove, provide complete refurbishment and installation services. A complete support service. 

Stress Relieving

Not taking any risks associated with machining, Baker & Provan stress relieves each bogie prior to machining. Without stress relieving, the potential for error when machining increases due to metal movements. The furnace has been a great investment, it gives us the capability to increase our production and improve our quality.


The Big Nomura

The Big Nomura being setup to machine a crane slew ring. This is one of several which will be machined at Baker & Provan over the coming month.

Baker & Provan Launches New Website and Social Pages

Today's business environment is ever changing. To be recognised, you need to stand out from the crowd. Responding to customer requirements as far as managing a projects scope, time, cost and quality is the key to delivery. But the challenge is, how do we engage with the community at large?

At Baker & Provan we have analysed this very problem. Whilst we specialise in Heavy Engineering, Fabrication, Maintenance and Support within the Defence, Rail and Industry sectors, project managing our projects to meet our customer requirements. Historically, since 1946, our business has been based on performance, exceeding our customers needs from connections (word &/or mouth). Now, whilst maintaining our historic client base and our cultural performance ethos, we’ve made it easier, convenient and timely to connect with us.

Today we (Baker & Provan) enter a new era. Today we are excited to announce that we have launched our new Website and Social media pages ( LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter).  

The Baker & Provan's new website helps you stay informed of our achievements and developments through the New Feed page and connect with us through the Contact Us page. In addition, the social media platforms will provide an easy way to stay informed and engage with us.
