Welcome to Walker Engineering (NW) Ltd

With over 30 years multi-market experience we provide a comprehensive package of engineering services.

An engineering company in Liverpool can profitably build on the region’s proud industrial heritage and the innovative outward-looking perspective it has always had toward the wider world.

Walker Engineering is such a company, with solid experience in design, fabrication and onsite assembly.

London has the stock brokers and property speculators, but here in the North West we have the best engineers in the world. Engineers in Liverpool inherit skills from ship-building, food production, construction and the chemical industry. We believe this diversity greatly adds to our strength as an engineering company, allowing us to combine numerous skills and diverse experience under one roof.

We are skilled in pressure vessels, steel pipework, explosion protection, maritime engineering, steel-frame construction, mezzanines, architectural handrails balustrades and staircases, lift installations, food production, control panels, PLCs, pump and gearbox repairs, pump bases and skids, tooling and all varieties of sheet metal fabrication. We work throughout the country and export products to the United States and beyond.

Full project management

Walker Engineering (NW) Ltd was established as an engineering company in Liverpool in 1999. We are neither too small to cope nor too big to not listen to our customers, and we can help them through every stage of an engineering project, from initial drawing and design, prototyping, fabrication and mechanical and electrical installation, through to post deployment maintenance and asset management.

The ability to provide a full package from concept design through to completion, including the design and fabrication of electrical controls and instrumentation, is what sets us apart from other engineering companies. Hiring a single firm to help you realise your project is not only easier but guarantees seamless progress from stage to stage with no clumsy handovers and a quicker, better quality outcome. We can also help you take advantage of the newest technologies to improve automation, robotics and monitoring systems.

Our project managers are all experienced multi-skilled engineers. This ensures every project plan and timescale is realistically assessed and delivered on time. Keeping in close touch with our customers throughout is another secret that enables us to build a better quality final product. We deliver both turnkey and bespoke solutions and our customer testimonials speak for themselves.

Smart design

Our project teams use a variety of modern software tools including Tekla and AutoCAD, allowing us to demonstrate a product or project solution before a tool ever touches steel. In the future, new upcoming technologies will considerably shift the roles and tools of project engineers. Design problems will be entered into sophisticated software capable of quickly finding the optimal solution. While there will always be a need for the creativity and experience of human designers, software assistance is beginning to enable us to find solutions to previously daunting or impossible engineering challenges.

Fabrication and installation

Our Skelmersdale site houses segregated workshops, each with its own overhead crane, so that stainless and mild carbon steel operations can be kept apart. All our fabricators and installers are highly skilled and accredited to MMA, TIG and MIG standards. We also operate an accredited apprenticeship scheme to ensure that a new generation of engineers in Liverpool benefits from the experience of our senior generations of engineers.

Health and safety

At Walker Engineering we take health and safety very seriously and take great pride in having one of the best safety records of any engineering company in Liverpool, both in our workshops and on site. Our site supervision is regularly audited and all our managers are encouraged to undertake training organised by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).

Maintenance and after-care

Modern well-designed solutions often require less maintenance personnel than in earlier days, however some requirements are more sophisticated. We offer both preventative (PPM) and reactive service options for when you need emergency repairs or upgrades to lighting, PLCs, electrical control panels, pumps or gearboxes.

No matter your project, Walker Engineering (NW) are your one-stop solution. Call us any time to discuss your engineering requirements.
