About Us

DH Marine was founded by David Henry in June 2000 and the company has grown significantly since then, almost entirely by word-of-mouth recommendation from genuinely satisfied customers.

In the Beginning

The early focus was on Marine Electrical Engineering and, although this is still an essential part of the business, the firm has successfully diversified into Industrial Electrical Engineering, Plant Hire, Marine Safety Equipment and Marine Supplies.

And now...

The company employs approx. 30 staff and operates from modern, well equipped premises conveniently located at the Marina Business Park in Lerwick.

The Technical Services team has grown into an experienced and multi-skilled workforce- on a typical day they may be working shifts to diagnose and repair faults on an oil & gas support vessel, maintaining and replacing harbour infrastructure equipment, providing technical support to customers operating in the vital fishing sector, overhauling an engine for a private customer or delivering and installing a generator and transformer for our plant hire division.

Our workshops, offices, stores and shop

Our well stocked stores provides a one-stop shop for filters, oils, batteries, lighting, cable and electrical spares, as well as breakdown parts. We can also make replacement hydraulic and pneumatic hoses and stock a wide range of couplings to help get you up and running again fast.

Our shop is a real Aladdins cave filled with fishing tackle, marine safety equipment, Raymarine navigational aids, Mercury outboard motors, Nilfisk pressure washers, cleaning chemicals, antifouling paint, marine, automotive and motorcycle batteries, camping and caravanning parts, trailers, socket sets and hand tools. It is open 6 days a week.

The supply and servicing of life saving equipment also forms an important part of the business.

Our Commitment

To provide our customers with a professional and reliable service, including 24/7 on-call breakdown support 365 days a year, whatever the weather.
