Babcock Wanson in the UK

Wanson Company Ltd was established in 1956 as a manufacturer of industrial air heaters in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire.  Following the takeover of Wanson by the CNIM Group in 1990, Wanson Company was renamed Babcock Wanson UK (BWUK).

Today, BWUK is focused exclusively on the sales and service of industrial process heating solutions for the UK, Ireland and selected export markets.  Sales are divided equally between equipment sales and after sales service.

BWUK Managing Director Chris Horsley believes a key factor in the company’s success stems from its ability to offer multiple, customised solutions: “UK competitors tend to be single solution based, whereas BWUK offers customers genuine choice, including a range of Coil Steam Generators and Fire Tube Boilers; we provide the solution best suited to their needs, rather than a solution that fits our product range.  Furthermore, we provide turnkey solutions.  We have the engineering expertise and experience to customise our systems and to develop innovative solutions.  For BWUK, it’s all about adding value to our products and services to differentiate us from competitors and to develop close, long-lasting relationships with customers.”
