BMT delivers complex engineering and design capabilities for European, North American, Australian and Asian customers. As we are not directly engaged in manufacturing or construction, we are able to provide an impartial view, supported by our status as an Employee Benefit Trust (EBT), free from the influence of external stakeholders.

Our technical expertise, combined with our history of close association with major defence organisations in Europe, the US, Canada and Australia, means we bring a deep understanding of the challenges our customers face, and can provide a wide range of solutions.

BMT delivers defence design and engineering services for Sea, Land, ISTAR and Air. More importantly, we also understand that getting a platform into service is not the only challenge for our customers and that keeping it safe for use, capable and operationally available over many years is also vital.
