About Us

United Engineering is a full-service fabrication and machine shop and has been servicing the industry since 1921. Key to our success is our experience, the size and versatility of our operations, and our direct access to water that allows for the convenient and cost-effective transportation of completed products. We have the facilities and the tools to build and ship large-scale fabrication projects via barge anywhere.

Our 40,000 square foot shop in Sidney, BC is strategically located adjacent to Victoria International Airport. Through a service agreement with the Airport Authority, we utilize the runway outside of business hours to move our fabrications to barge loading facilities on Patricia Bay. Our 7,500 square foot Victoria, BC operation on the upper harbour includes access to Point Hope Maritime’s docking facility and marine turntable. Once loaded, the Salish Sea and Pacific Ocean are the marine highways. Our clients value our horsepower, breadth of expertise and trusted reputation for uncompromised service and quality. While large-scale fabrication projects represent a significant part of our operation today, we never forget where we came from and take great pride in supporting the business needs of our local clientele. Our word counts and our handshake matters.
