We are a well established diesel engineering company specialising in the service and supply of spare parts for various types of engines predominantly in the offshore sector. We hold agencies for various engine manufacturers which sre currently operating at a successful level.

Tayside Diesel Engineering

Tayside Diesel Engineering Ltd. was formed in June 1980 by 3 ex managers of Yarrow Engineers Ltd. of Glasgow, the latter having ceased trading in Dundee that same year.

The aim of the Company was to partially fill the vacuum left by Yarrow in the Ship Repair and Diesel Engines market.

Tayside Diesel started with the Scania Diesel agency for marine and industrial engines and Johnson Marine Pumps and has successfully been involved with these agencies since then.

In 1987, the Company was awarded the MTU and Mercedes agency for marine and industrial engines and our turnover has steadily increased in that area.

These agencies have been developed and service, sales and spare parts are operating at a successful level. We also source and supply parts for various other engine types as well as carrying out the servicing and maintenance of same.

The Company is ISO 9002 approved to the highest standards possible.

Currently our customers include, preferred contractor Shell UK, BP Exploration, Amec Process & Energy, Amerada Hess,  Talisman,  Craig Group International, Scotrail, Tidewater Marine,  Nexen, Total, Apache, CNR and many more.

Although our main business is still the maintenance and repair of diesel engines, we are very versatile and are also involved for instance in the building of generator sets and fire pump sets for the industrial, marine and offshore industry.

The Company is financially sound and all of our engineers are time served and trained in the engines of all the agencies we hold and for travelling to offshore locations.

The Company has no outstanding liabilities and also owns the property from which it operates.

The foregoing is a brief resume of the Company’s history and present position.
