About us

Redhall is a multi-disciplined engineering business offering design, manufacture, installation, maintenance and decommissioning services to the nuclear, oil & gas, defence, petrochemical and food process sectors.

The Redhall Group has three distinct brands: Redhall Engineering Solutions, Redhall Nuclear and Redhall Manufacturing, the latter of which encompasses Booth Industries, Jordan Manufacturing and R Blackett Charlton. This has allowed the Group to expand its offering in current markets, as well as establishing and taking advantage of new opportunities. It also helps drive forward efficiencies through load sharing between sites and increased inter company working.

Operating throughout the UK, Europe and internationally, our multi-faceted engineering team can transfer skills and services and combine capabilities to give an unrivalled depth of knowledge and experience. So, whether the project is one-off, termed maintenance, framework or turnkey, our blue chip client base can rest assured that we will deliver the best solution, on time, to budget and in a safe manner.
