Bendalls Engineering was founded in Carlisle in 1894 as a family owned business and has always been at the forefront of fabrication technology. In the 1920’s, the company manufactured the body panels for Donald Campbell’s Bluebird land and water record breaking speed machines.
During the 1950’s, Bendalls Engineering became one of the first suppliers of bespoke equipment into Windscale, Britain’s first nuclear facility. To this day, Bendalls Engineering remains a leading player in supplying to the nuclear industry. In the 1970’s, Bendalls manufactured pressure equipment for the burgeoning North Sea oil and land based petrochemical industry and has since become a global player within this sector.
In 1996, Bendalls Engineering was bought by Carr’s Milling Industries PLC, now Carr’s Group PLC, and became an essential part of the expanding Carr’s Engineering Division. Our operational base, as of 2006, is a purpose-built 5000 square metre engineering facility in Kingstown Industrial Estate in Carlisle. Today, Bendalls Engineering continues to invest in the latest technology to deliver premium services to our clients.
