Sharpshell Engineering, a majority black-woman-owned and managed company was first established in 2008 as a provider of industrial solutions. In 2012 we expanded our capabilities to include engineering solutions, with a particular focus on offering Maintenance Engineering and Shutdowns. Our reputation as shutdown specialists is supported by our specialist scaffolding and rope access teams that contribute to our fast turnaround times. We have also established workshops that are local to our key maintenance contracts, to ensure that we are able to provide 24/7 support. We serve a broad client base (that includes structural engineers, mining houses, petrochemical industries, architects, construction companies and power generation).
