We have now been using Tranco for a couple of years, in that time they have carried out their works very safely and with the utmost efficiently, their RAMS are always site specific and just what we require of any sub contractor. They way they go about their tasks with dust extract attachments for their drills, which usually means very little cleaning up, this is really important especially when you are working in an existing building. We would have no hesitation in recommending Tranco

I have used Tranco Ltd for the last twelve years and they are my 1st choice contractor when it comes to all types of diamond drilling, chasing, or structural alterations. Darren has a wealth of experience, technical and safety knowledge which he brings to each and every project, and the Tranco operatives on sites maintain this attention, quality and job focus. Safety is paramount for Tranco Ltd and their works will always be inspected and planned in advance by Darren to highlight any potential on-site issues. They are very reliable and adaptable, and their equipment is modern and well maintained
