Welcome to BMT, a unique business group made up of outstanding people. We are a leading engineering, science and technology consultancy, operating mainly in the maritime industries. Our customers across the world buy outcomes: cost-effective solutions to business problems that require technical excellence, independent thinking and innovation.
With around 1,300 professionals located in 60 offices in Europe, Asia and the Americas we draw upon a wide range of experience and expertise to provide high-quality, high-value products and services. These aim to help our clients operate their businesses in the most cost-effective, safe, reliable and environmentally responsible manner.
BMT's combination of intellectual rigour and commercial insight has helped us to play an important and increasing role in industries as diverse as oil and gas, defence, renewable energy, ports, risk management and maritime transport.
BMT was established in 1985 by bringing together research and technology organisations that traced their roots back to the beginning of the 20th century.
Formed in 1985 from the merger of the UK's British Ship Research Association and National Maritime Institute, BMT's heritage includes the water tanks where the famous 'bouncing bomb' was developed during WWII as well as major, more recent advances in computer-aided design and aerodynamics.
Our commitment to investing in people and high-quality research has enabled the modern BMT to continue that pioneering maritime spirit: from designing the world's most advanced aircraft carrier to creating new measuring and monitoring systems for the offshore oil and gas industry. In commercial shipping we have played a key role in landmark events, including the investigation into the 1987 sinking of the RoRo ferry, Herald of Free Enterprise. On land, BMT has helped to test and improve the design of some of the world's tallest buildings and fastest racing cars. We are also now part of the European Space Agency development team.

Our customers value impartial, expert advice and we value the freedom to deliver it without any potential conflict of interest from external stakeholders.
BMT's independence is guaranteed by our status as an Employee Benefit Trust (EBT), giving our people the freedom to think without limits and create ground-breaking solutions.
BMT Group Ltd is a member-based company limited by guarantee, with the assets of the company held in beneficial ownership for its staff. The EBT Trustees' remit is to act in the best interests of all the staff in the short, medium and long-term and they themselves are not beneficiaries.
We believe that the EBT is evidence of BMT's commitment to the people who drive its success. Their independence and commitment mean that we can continue to provide the valuable insight and knowledge our customers require.
