Allan Webb Ltd and BMT Defence Services Ltd were delighted to welcome The Secretary of State for Defence, Sir Michael Fallon to their office in Barrow-in-Furness. During the visit the Secretary of State met members of the team and discussed the various projects that are being worked on and delivered by them in support of both in-service units and new build programmes.
The Barrow office focuses predominantly on producing and maintaining specialist Technical Documentation for the Royal Navy, but also undertakes similar tasks for the wider MOD and also the commercial sector.
Both companies also demonstrated significant innovations aligned with work they are undertaking in support of in-service and future capabilities across Land, Sea and Air for UK MOD; as well as ongoing investment and development in the North West, including the Technical Author Apprenticeship Scheme underway in conjunction with Furness College.
Managing Director Steve Rigsby said: ‘We are exceptionally pleased to have been visited by Sir Michael Fallon and to have had the chance to demonstrate our impact on the North West and the hard work of the Allan Webb and BMT teams. We recognise the importance of investing in the North West and are committed to developing a sustainable future in the region.
Furthermore, the synergies between the two companies have enabled significant collaboration on contracts that we are demonstrating to run effectively and efficiently whilst bringing significant innovation for the customers.”
