Who we are
For more than a century, Babcock has been trusted to deliver bespoke, highly-skilled engineering support.
Underpinned by a deep understanding of technology integration, infrastructure management and specialist training, we help customers around the world to improve the capability, reliability and availability of their most critical assets within our key market sectors of Marine, Land, Aviation and Nuclear.
What we do
Engineering is in our DNA. Babcock provides skilled, bespoke engineering services which allow our customers to improve their own performance whilst reducing costs. We work in highly regulated environments managing complex assets for both defence and civil customers.
We maintain, upgrade, operate and manage expensive infrastructure and essential equipment for a range of government bodies and private sector customers in the UK and internationally. We provide them with better capability, reliability and availability of their critical assets, and in doing so provide significant cost savings.
We are a trusted partner who understands the critical role that our customers’ assets and infrastructure play in delivering their business; we share risk with them in delivering innovation and efficiency, and we share the benefits.
We have consistently built up our expertise and commercial positions across four key sectors: marine, land, aviation and nuclear. Each sector shares deep technical knowledge and expertise and - through infrastructure, assets, technology or regulation - high barriers to entry:
- Marine: Delivering complex through-life engineering services, technology, equipment, consultancy and training through unique owned and managed infrastructure to global defence and civil customers.
- Land: Providing critical fleet management and training for c. 80,000 customer-owned defence, emergency services, airport and commercial vehicles, engineering services and technical training worldwide.
- Aviation: Providing fixed and rotary wing technical training for all three armed services, equipment support, airbase management and operator-owned and customer-owned aircraft fleets across the globe.
- Cavendish Nuclear: Delivering major nuclear decommissioning programmes, critical training, operation support and new build programme management to both public and private customers.
How we do it
Babcock is a trusted partner who understands the critical role that its customers’ assets and infrastructure play in delivering their business, both in the UK and internationally. We share risk with them in delivering innovation and efficiency, and we share the benefits.
We continue to develop our specialist skills and capabilities in our four sectors, sharing expertise across the Group through three key capabilities:
Babcock has built deep technical expertise with decades of experience; we understand risk and resilience and are able to deliver availability with innovation. We are equipment‑agnostic which enables us to work with any OEM to specify and support its products. We have the ability to identify and integrate technology into our through‑life support.
We have experience of operating and managing complex and critical infrastructure assets in highly regulated environments, from unique owned marine facilities, critical air and land fleets, nuclear licensed sites, naval, air and army bases, technical training sites to customer‑owned aircraft.
Technical training is an integral part of our engineering offering. It is a fundamental and on-going requirement and a core part of our expertise. Driving technical training across the Group allows us to share innovation and successful methodology across sectors to ensure our customers make the best use of their critical resources.
