Who We are

Based in the midlands, Galvin was founded by Jim Keetley and Sara Ashford in June 2020. Galvin Marine Engineering is a small family-owned business offering specialist OEM engine support at a fraction of the cost.

Jim has worked in the marine diesel repair industry since 1994 working for one of Europe’s largest independent service companies as well as large OEM organisations.

Our service engineers travel the globe supporting all types of marine structures such as oil rigs, platforms, FPSO’s as well as onshore structures, working with high and medium speed engine conducting services, inspections, repairs, and overhaul.

Our business model of organic growth through home grown talent ensures that the knowledge of our well-travelled senior engineers is passed down to the younger generation ensuring that the family name is at the forefront of Diesel Engineering for generations to come.

In Partnership with one of the UKs best engineering colleges we run a yearly intake of apprentices some of whom are already working worldwide supporting customers in their hour of need.

We carry the family name of Jim’s mother with pride and the family name stands for hard work, honesty, and integrity. Every action we undertake is completed with pride and quality offering the most cost-effective service for the customer anytime, anywhere.
