Company Profile

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.
