Our History

Cavendish Nuclear launched in 2013 – but our heritage dates back more than half a century.
Our business consolidates under a single brand many of the leading organisations in the history of nuclear energy in the UK:

Alstec (acquired 2006)
INS (acquired 2008)
Weir, Strachan and Henshaw (acquired 2008)
UKAEA (acquired 2009)
VT Nuclear Services (acquired 2010)
Deva Manufacturing Services (acquired 2010)

These organisations came together in 2013 as Cavendish Nuclear – a single brand reflecting our rich heritage and a tribute to the renowned British physicist Henry Cavendish who discovered hydrogen.
