Our heritage

Formerly S MacNeillie & Son, Babcock’s vehicle engineering business has over 100–years’ experience in pushing the boundaries of automotive solutions and design.

Set up in 1910 to deliver superior coach building and finish, the business has increased its capabilities and facilities to meet market demand for greater protection and full integration. Babcock International Group acquired the business in 2015, bringing about a significant step change in how organisations look to manage and develop their fleet of specialist vehicles.

Babcock is the UK’s leading engineering support services organisation. Operating in the UK and overseas, we are trusted to deliver complex and critical support to the defence, energy, emergency services, transport and education sectors. We pride ourselves on our long-term customer focused relationships and engineering excellence.
