Over the years, Barrnon has developed an enviable reputation for great engineering ideas that are brilliantly executed and then applied in some of the world’s most challenging environments.
We started with exceptionally durable scallop fishing gear – which we still sell to happy fishermen all over the UK. We then took our knowledge of the rigours of trawling and transferred it to some huge problems in the nuclear decommissioning industry.
