An introduction to Burgess Marine
Burgess Marine is at the forefront of the specialised marine engineering industry, having earned a worldwide reputation as experts in all aspects of structural repairs and renewals as well as mechanical repairs both above and below the waterline.

Burgess has recently acquired Testbank Ship Repair, with locations at Southampton docks, Portsmouth and Bristol.
