BMT Defence Services, a subsidiary of BMT Group, will use the prestigious DSEi exhibition in London next month as a platform to showcase its global capabilities in both naval design and acquisition support.

BMT will also launch a new and unique service to the defence industry designed specifically to address the recognised need for a truly collaborative approach between the UK’s MoD and industry.

Over the last 25 years, BMT’s innovation, expertise and ability to tackle the most complex design and systems issues has played an integral role in helping to deliver key land, sea and air projects for the international defence sector.

Both local and international delegates visiting the show will have the opportunity to engage with BMT’s systems and marine engineers, naval architects and software developers and discuss the specific challenges they face.

Muir Macdonald, managing director at BMT Defence Services, explains: “Our rich pedigree in naval engineering and, over more recent years, our successful expansion into the land domain has meant that we have become a trusted partner for the UK’s MoD and allied countries, helping to enhance operations and deliver innovative capability for personnel on the front line.

“We have invested significantly in developing relationships and global partnerships, in order to support the UK Government’s initiative to export knowledge and expertise to responsible nations and promote the UK as a global engineering authority. Our people are well placed to impart their knowledge on how to do business overseas through the many projects we have been involved in and our successful export strategy. We are beginning to see the fruits of our labour, having secured a number of key defence contracts where our skills and expertise are making a real difference.”

BMT Reliability Consultants and BMT Isis, part of the wider BMT group of companies, will also join BMT Defence Services at the stand in order to provide a comprehensive overview of the group’s expertise and knowledge in the defence industry.
