BMT Isis Ltd. (BMT), a subsidiary of BMT Group Ltd., an international maritime design, engineering and risk management consultancy, is delighted to announce the opening of its new office in Plymouth.

The new office in Plymouth’s city center which was officially opened by Oliver Colvile, MP for Plymouth, Sutton & Devonport, will allow BMT Isis to expand its existing business of providing safety, Environment and security consultancy to the defense and transport industries. It will also help support the organization’s new weapons, ordnance, munitions and explosives capability which aims to address the growing need within industry and the MOD for highly qualified explosives safety personnel.

Mike Prince, Managing Director of BMT Isis commented, “This is an exciting time for the company and we’re looking forward to developing local relationships in Plymouth and building on the success of BMT Isis in the U.K. and overseas. Given Plymouth’s historical links to the Royal Navy and its renowned ship repair, refit and marine engineering prowess, it is the perfect location for this latest expansion. There is an increasing demand for the services we offer which is why we are actively recruiting people who have design, operational and / or maintenance experience with submarine, ship or weapons systems.”

The opening ceremony also provided BMT Isis with the opportunity to further demonstrate its commitment to the local community by officially signing the Community Covenant which complements at a local level, the Armed Forces Covenant.

Mike Prince continued, “This Covenant further demonstrates BMT’s concrete support to the Armed Forces community and their families. As well as taking part in a number of volunteering events, including local cadet units, we have over 100 veterans and a number of Armed Forces Reservists working across BMT.

This community offers hugely valuable skills and knowledge and we will continue to support them and mutually benefit from their experience wherever possible.”
