At BMT we don't usually look back - we are too busy anticipating and addressing the latest challenges our customers face.
BMT was formed in April 1985 from the amalgamation of the British Ship Research Association (BSRA) and the National Maritime Institute (NMI), but our genes stretch back much further.
