About the employer

It’s great to be known as the leader in stainless engineering for the international marine industry though it’s taken some time to attain this position. We’ve needed to keep right at the forefront of design, engineering and manufacturing technology. To do so we have put major investment into our plant and equipment (some quite unique to Cooney in the UK) and have committed to an on-going development of our workforce skills. The result is a range of stainless fittings and deck equipment selected by super yacht manufacturers and boat owners throughout the marine sector. Outside the marine industry, our products and capabilities have been acknowledged by the architectural industry, they have chosen Cooney Marine to manufacture in stainless steel, architectural product for projects from the new Welsh Assembly buildings to the City of London.
