Our History

On Line Design & Engineering Limited was founded in 1982 with the goal of becoming the Design and Engineering company of choice for clients in the Humberside region.

Based on years of experience on large scale sites and construction projects, the founders were able to identify the need for a design firm with the required experience and knowledge of the Engineering sector to better understand clients’ needs and provide exceptional solutions. Therefore, from humble beginnings in a portacabin on North Killingholme airfield, South Humberside, our company focused on gathering designers of all disciplines, each with a firm grasp of engineering design, fabrication and construction methods.

After 30 years of practice, with a reputation of being the ‘go to address’ for the design and detailing of complex projects in the region, On Line Design has developed far beyond its initial founding goals, and now serves clients UK wide. We offer services to clients for every project, regardless of size, provided they require our assistance in order to add value to their business.

On Line Design is part of the On Line Group, which provides design, engineering, fabrication and recruitment services through its family of companies. We believe consistency in our clientele is a measure of our success and we are honoured by the high ratio of return customers. We pride ourselves on our relationships and the wider On Line family of shareholders, employees and clients.
