 History
Babcock International traces its history back to 1891 when Babcock Wilcox Ltd was established in the UK. Its pioneering spirit in engineering was applied to a variety of technological areas and in 1936 we designed and built the world famous Alexandra Palace transmitter in London - still in use today. Most recently Babcock has acquired the highly respected TV and radio experts WRN Broadcast, a company with an equally long tradition of innovation in the industry. 2016 sees Babcock celebrating 80 exciting years of broadcasting in the UK and all around the world.
