BMT Defence Services' professional development schemes are accredited by three
prestigious professional bodies:
In 2012, BMT Group was awarded a two star accreditation and was placed 55th in The Sunday Times Best Companies survey, which follows on from the first-class status BMT Defence Services was awarded in the same survey in 2010.
At BMT, we pride ourselves on being an enjoyable place to work and the award makes us a leading employer in the UK.
2009 saw BMT Defence Services and the European Defence Agency shortlisted for the award of 'Green Shipping Initiative of the Year'. We were selected for our efforts to assist the maritime industry in improving environmental efficiency through investigations in the commercially effective application of electric ship technology.
Below you will find some testimonials provided by BMT customers. Our customers area can provide you with further insight on who we work with.
"We heard about new designs of replenishment ships and, notably, about new concepts of afloat support. The last paper on this subject was written as long ago as 1947. In this conference the paper was by BMT Ltd who provided the conference's largest number of papers on new innovative concepts and ship designs. In my early days in the MOD, the Admiral explained why concept design work was placed with a design house (in those days YARD Ltd) rather than with the warship builders. "A shipbuilder makes his money and his profit in the factory and at the waterfront; so that is where he will put his best people. For innovative future designs we need a company whose best people are in the design office". BMT occupies this niche in the maritime sector in the UK and they gave us excellent papers."
