“…. we are proud of our engineering heritage”

Roy McCarroll

In 1990, Roy McCarroll embarked on a new venture adjacent to the historic slipways where the Titanic was previously built some 80 years before. Roy, one of the most skilled welders of his time, together with his son Robert, created and developed Cimpina into a leading welding/fabrication company. Nestled in the home of ‘Ship Building, Cimpina is proud of its maritime heritage as many of our forefathers were employed in Harland and Wolff.

Times change and so too has Cimpina, branching into the Pharmaceutical, Petrochemical, Aerospace and Food/Drink markets. The core roots however remain in certified welding over a range of metals and processes. Aligned with this, the 24/7 Cimpina Maintenance division provides a full mechanical repair service to key Blue Chip Clients.


We understand the criticality of our work and on a daily basis new requests for repairs due to metal fatigue, damage, or corrosion present new challenges for the team. It could be one of the following:

  • cog
  • crane
  • gangway
  • heat exchanger
  • lifting beam
  • pipeline
  • pontoon
  • pressure vessel
  • rotating arm
  • ship
  • tank
  • tanker


If your operations have stopped we endeavour to get you operational as soon as possible.

Many of our customers remark on not just the responsiveness of the company but also our versatility. As the company has matured the skill set has expanded to include the following:

  • Certified/Coded Welders – range of processes and materials
  • Gas Safe Installers – Industrial and Municipal
  • Fabricators/Burners/Platers
  • Pipefitters
  • Plumbers – Industrial and Municipal
  • Riggers


Continuing the development, Cimpina has branched into complimentary materials such as plastics and GRP – key materials within the Offshore, Petrochemical and Utility Sectors.
