Our history

From a Yorkshire power station to a transnational maintenance provider

TSG Ferrybridge is a company with a lot of tradition. The first brick was laid around nine decades ago. Our 16000m2 workshops and offices were originally constructed as a power station. In the 1970’s they were transformed to the present state.

TSG Ferrybridge is synonymous with engineering excellence and our experience was gained through refurbishing, maintaining, modifying and providing emergency support for the UK’s major power and industrial plants. In connection to our tradition our current modern technology ensures we provide the correct engineering solutions which serve you right first time.
