Josh’s Gothenburg Gold


Team UK had a great time at the Euroskills competition in Gothenburg by all accounts, with our talented, young apprentice, Josh Peek, winning a gold medal for welding!

Josh is a hard worker, now a champion welder to boot, claiming his title as best in Europe despite a somewhat painful setback. During the competition Josh explained, “I set my gloves alight – that hurt but I just got on with the job.” That’s our Josh!


We’re extremely proud of Josh and all of Team UK who brought home two golds, one silver, two bronzes and eight medallions of excellence, making this their most successful Euroskills competition. Well done to everyone involved.

It’s onwards and upwards for Josh now, as he continues to work as a valued apprentice at L and G Engineering, whilst looking to represent the UK at the Worldskills finals in Abu Dhabi next October.

Fryers By The Batch


At L and G Engineering we’re already known for our fabrication of commercial batch fryers and are pleased to be currently working on three new units for the overseas market.

One of our former European clients was so impressed by the first fryer that we supplied to them that they’ve ordered another that we plan to deliver in early autumn. We’re also working hard to fulfill a batch fryer order to a company based in the Middle East – we’re certainly getting a name internationally!



In addition to batch fryers, we produce, install and maintain a wide range of food processing equipment, including a variety of conveyor systems, industrial ovens and dryers and specialised food manufacturing equipment.

Leading The Field


We recently came to the rescue of a local poultry supplier that had been searching (unsuccessfully) for an efficient poultry sanitiser to combat bacteria, especially Campylobacter, on their freshly processed poultry.

Campylobacter is the most common cause of food poisoning in the UK and it’s therefore of the utmost importance to deal with its presence in the food chain.

We’re always keen to rise to a challenge here at L and G and this was no exception. We got to work on the design and fabrication of a sanitising system that was capable of maintaining the constant, high temperature required to combat the bacteria, as selected by the client. The process involves hot water to sanitize the bird that is kept at a very high, consistent temperature (within 0.5ยบ of selection) that the bacteria are unable to withstand.

There is a call by the food industry and supermarkets for this practice to become industry standard, so at L and G Engineering we’re extremely proud to be at the forefront of developing this finely tuned process.

Looking for an engineering solution within your food processing plant? Call 01603 721254 or email landgeng@btconnect.com

Josh, who trains at Great Yarmouth College, is Team UK’s entrant in the welding section of the competition, in which more than 30 European countries will compete.

EuroSkills brings together young people up to the age of 25 who excel in their chosen vocational skill, with the aim of promoting the status and appeal of vocational training. Skills in the competition include construction, engineering, hospitality and creative disciplines.
