Our Story

Our history speaks for itself and we pride ourselves on having strong in-house systems and resources for all of the major Engineering & Welding disciplines

Laker-Vent Engineering, established in 1962, was originally known as Lakers (Northern) Limited. In 1980 Vent Engineering Limited formed, eventually coming to be known as Laker-Vent Engineering Limited following a merger in October 1990.

Since the 1960’s we have been providing our services which consist of detail design, pipe-work fabrication, pipe-work installation and mechanical installation services to industries throughout the UK. How have we done it? First, we have a progressive management team who have a “can do” attitude and a spirit of teamwork throughout the company. Second, it’s because we have some great people on-board. We continually invest in our staff and it shows, just look at our accreditations and awards.
