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.

The Barrnon story doesn’t end there. Through our subsidiary company, Kapwell Technologies, we’re now applying insight from the nuclear industry to tackle a considerable challenge for the Oil & Gas sector.
From humble beginnings, we’re now at the centre of some of the world’s most demanding industries, delivering innovative engineering solutions that get the job done.
