Atkins has strengthened its position in the nuclear sector with the acquisition of MG Bennett & Associates, a multidisciplinary engineering design company, for a cash consideration of £2.5 million.

With a team of around 30 people, MG Bennett was formed in 1984 and is based in Rotherham, South Yorkshire.

The company specialises in mechanical and structural engineering and has a strong track record in delivering solutions to the nuclear industry. MG Bennett has developed particular expertise in lifting and handling nuclear-related materials and has a strong track record in the design of piping, pressure vessels, bespoke mechanical equipment and large moveable structures.

In addition to its nuclear expertise, the company works within the aerospace, oil and gas, power, environmental and rail sectors.

Atkins currently has more than 250 staff working across the nuclear industry and supports its clients in the areas of decommissioning, generation and the new-build programme.
