The launch of Redhall Nuclear will signal the amalgamation of Steels Engineering, Jordan Nuclear and Chieftain Insulation and create a circa £40 million turnover business. It will employ 400 staff based across the UK, working from offices in Sellafield, Aldermaston, Barrow in Furness and Teesside.
Managing Director of Redhall Nuclear, Helen Simms, commented on the merger of the three companies:
“The bringing together of these businesses allows us to build on our enviable track record of successfully and safely delivering a diverse range of engineering disciplines within the challenging environments of the nuclear industry. This strategic step in our growth will enable us to provide a greater depth and breadth to our existing customers, whilst ensuring we develop best practice across the business. It also provides us with the financial strength and capability to take on larger projects.”
By fusing the capabilities of the three businesses, Redhall Nuclear will be able to provide complete turnkey project solutions, from in?house design, through engineering and manufacturing expertise, to project and site management. The new company will also be able to build on its long term presences at key UK nuclear sites, capitalising on its proven track record of successfully delivering projects in construction and decommissioning, asset care and new nuclear power generation.
The new organisation will be split into four divisions: Power Generation, Defence, Decommissioning and Waste Management and Nuclear Growth Areas (including fuels). This will enable a greater focus on individual client requirements.
David Jackson, Redhall Group Chairman commented: “Redhall Nuclear will be one of the leading organisations in its field, with the financial and engineering resources to compete on a national basis.
The complementary skills of these operations provide a genuine alternative to traditional competition. It will significantly enhance the Group’s ability to compete for larger contracts in both the nuclear civil and defence sectors”.
