Tacten provides technicians and tradesmen who are highly trained, accredited and certified in accordance with their relevant trade body.

As part of our tactical approach to integrated industrial services our skilled technicians are able to safely reach the most difficult to access locations at your facility and carry out all required tasks. There is no large machinery or heavy equipment – just one team of specialist who can get the job done safely and cost effectively.

For work at height Tacten teams can remove the need for traditional scaffold erection, certification, daily inspection requirements and tear down, providing our clients with an immediate savings of time and money.

Our small crews of multi-disciplined technicians mean that the technician who accesses the work is usually the one who completes the task. Our methods have been proven safe for over 20 years and our workmanship is guaranteed.
