Mobile Blasting and Painting Service covering Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire, Somerset, East Sussex and the London Areas

Welcome to Symblast

Welcome to Symblast,

Our dedicated team have been in the mobile blasting service since 1998, when we started antifoul paint removal.

During that time we have blasted (and painted ) not only thousands of boats but also many other surfaces such as buildings, cars and timber.

We all work hard to ensure that your requirements and quality expectations are met to the best of our ability.

We have decided not to join ISO 9001 as the costs and maintenance of this standard are both costly and time consuming and this would need to be reflected in our prices. We do however have Quality, Safety and Waste Assurance policies that we adhere to and these policies are available upon request.

We are also members of Check a Trade where you-the customer-can see for yourself what other customers are saying about us !
