    The year 2021 marks the 130th anniversary of Babcock - a landmark achievement that few companies achieve. This is also a very unique year where the world continues to face an unprecedented global health crisis. While it may not necessarily be a time for celebration, it is still important for us to reflect on the past, and more importantly, to focus on the future.

    It is particularly gratifying to be recognising this anniversary as the future for our products and services looks so bright. Demand for sustainable, renewable solutions continues to grow, and Doosan Babcock is at the forefront building new, dynamic markets for our services around the globe.

    Our company’s origins trace back to our original joint venture, Babcock & Wilcox. George Herman Babcock and Stephen Wilcox formed Babcock & Wilcox after introducing a design for a steam boiler in 1867. A sales office opened in Glasgow in 1881, and within two years the firm was sourcing components from local contractors. Clydebank's Singer Works began building complete boilers in 1885 and, thereafter, a new company was established in Britain on July 4th, 1891, to supply boilers outside the United States and Cuba. Babcock & Wilcox Limited launched a factory of its own at Renfrew, Scotland, in 1895, and in 1900 a start-up capital of £240,000 was raised to £1.57 million as we embarked on over a century of leadership in the global boiler markets, establishing operations in several other countries.

    Since then Babcock has evolved and transformed in many ways. All these changes over the last 130 years came with great efforts, resulting in Babcock being recognised in the market as a professional company, which drives its business through knowledge, expertise, energy and focus on customer service driven by a sustainable approach.

    To all our employees, customers, stakeholders, and partners – I thank you for your continued commitment to Babcock – you have made our company’s success possible. I am extremely proud of what we’ve achieved together. With a well-defined vision, combined with assurance and eagerness to grow, after 130 years of hard work we have remained just as ambitious as we started – however we have gained even more experience, strengthened our skills and our collaborations.

    It gives me great confidence to know that we are all prepared to make this company stronger by finding solutions to the challenges of our industries and making sure that we overcome this global health crisis in good shape.

    Happy 130 years of Babcock! Here’s to many more fantastic years.

    Stay safe and I hope to see you soon again.

    Every working day is different.
    You are constantly learning something new.
    It's a good team spirit within the organisation.
    We're proud of who we are and what we do. It really is a people company.
    What really excites the CEO is seeing the business grow. If you focus on growing the people,
    the business will grow behind it.
    I started as a graduate trainee. There was a family history. My father and my grandfather had
    worked for the company, and they worked on the tools, they were blue collar workers, so I came
    from very humble beginnings. What I found with the company was limitless opportunities on
    a global scale, involvement in huge projects and a real sense of career development.
    I joined Doosan Babcock in July 1991 as a graduate engineer. Doosan Babcock has a huge
    number of different potential employment avenues you can go down. There are so many different
    areas you can work in through oil and gas, through nuclear thermal, our chemical sector through
    our technology, engineering, and it offers opportunities worldwide as well.
    My first 20 years with the company was in Renfrew main works. I then moved to the overseas
    department and I worked in China for a couple of years, Vietnam for a couple of years,
    Hong Kong, Dubai. It was a great experience. I would recommend it to anybody.
    I joined in September 2007 as a mechanical team leader. For people that want to come in and
    want quick career progression, that want to learn, that want to work in these unique
    environments, then it's a perfect company to come to.
    In Doosan Babcock at the moment we're considered in the industry to be an industry leader in
    training, and that's important to us. It reflects on one of our values, which is 2G, and the theory
    behind 2G is that if you grow the people, the business will grow naturally alongside it so
    apprenticeship schemes and graduate training schemes, and our project control apprenticeships,
    are extremely important.
    Doosan Babcock has a very robust apprenticeship scheme in place, which is fully supported by
    the sites as well.
    I'm an apprentice CAD technologist. I'm almost finished, so it's been three years now and it has
    been very successful. The apprentices are working on live projects and we're having meetings
    with clients and we are as much involved as all the other employees at the company.
    I joined Doosan Babcock about four years ago. I joined as a graduate on their Graduate Training
    Programme. Doosan Babcock's a good place for graduates to work, mainly for the variety of
    projects you can get involved in, getting the opportunity to move round the company and see
    different departments, also getting to go overseas and just generally get involved in a large
    company which has a lot of potential and a lot of development.
    What we do in Doosan Babcock is that we assign mentors and we assign coaches to people.
    Mentoring is about giving them career advice, and also lifetime advice as well.
    I started with Doosan Babcock about 15 years ago. I joined as a graduate and started on an oil
    refinery in the South East of Essex, so over them 15 years I've progressively got into more senior
    positions. A lot of people have helped me doing that journey, so like managers, operations
    managers and dedicated mentors. It's certainly shaped how I am today.
    I take the role as a mentor very seriously because I feel it's my opportunity then to give some of
    my experience back to the graduates, and help to support them through their own development.
    Doosan Babcock have a lot of involvement within the Women's Within Engineering societies.
    There is also a lot of involvement with STEM, which is Science, Technology, Engineering and
    Maths which is a programme designed to advertise the scientific subjects to children at school or
    universities.
    Corporate social responsibility for Doosan Babcock is extremely important. It's an opportunity for
    the sites, or the company, to put something back into the communities that we work in.
    It's about promoting the Doosan name in a positive light, so it communicates our values to the
    wider communities. In some respects, it's not just about the money. It's about long-term heritage
    and reputation.
    Our values are extremely strong. The core DNA is to do the right thing at all times. Doing the right
    thing in the business has led us to some fantastic relationships with our customers, and to do that
    you have to be in the business for the long-term.
    Safety is paramount in everything we do. If it can't be done safely, then we won't be doing it until
    such measures are put down that a job can be done safely.
    To have achieved our safety record that we have in oil and gas we could only have done it by
    working together as one team.
    Safety is paramount and that will never be compromised.
    In the UK we spend something like £20 million per year on product development, and we elect to
    and we make a conscious decision to trade profit for product development. We trade profit for
    people development, and by doing the right things we are securing the long-term future of the
    business.
    Innovation is important within Doosan Babcock. As a company we're always looking at ways to
    improve our performance. We're always looking at new ideas and it's something we encourage
    from our people to share good ideas, and to put forward good ideas.
    I've learnt so much from the people that I work with and the support that I've had from the
    company so far as been amazing. I couldn’t see myself anywhere else at this stage.
    My son works for Doosan Babcock, my daughter has done a school further education work
    experience through Babcock, so it's a big part of my life.
    I was recently given a promotion to be the laboratory manager, so there is quite a lot of
    opportunity to move up the ladder, if that's something you are inclined towards doing and there is
    good support for that.
    There's a lot of doors being opened for myself and there is no reason why they can't be opened
    for any other person.
    We recognise talent and that there is opportunity there and Doosan will back you to get you
    where you need to be.
    When I joined Doosan Babcock in 1991 the name I'd heard of before, but didn't mean a huge
    amount to me. Nearly 24 years later it means everything to me.
    Really I'm only looking after the company, and leading it, for a period of time. I've picked it up
    from a very good CEO and I will hand it on to a new CEO in the future, and so anybody joining
    the company now could be seen as the CEO of the future.
