Frank Shepley founded Shepley Engineers in Manchester in 1948, and since then we’ve been a nuclear stalwart. In late 1948 we were working on the stainless ducting on the Windscale Piles, and were involved in the commissioning of the world’s first commercial nuclear power plant, Calder Hall. We led the recent iron restoration of Elizabeth Tower (Big Ben) and the Houses of Parliament, and we are now currently working on Britain’s next generation nuclear power station at Hinkley Point C.
Over seventy years from that day in 1948, we’re now established as a major contractor within several highly-regulated industries. Through acquisition we also have two wholly owned subsidiaries, West Cumberland Engineering and PPS Electrical, giving the Group a combined 128 year experience.
We are the longest-serving continuous contractor to work on Sellafield, and our company ethos is a major part of that. We put our clients first, supporting their business needs and delivering engineering solutions with commitment, care and consideration. We have amassed a combined 58 years of RoSPA Gold Awards, and in 2022 won the Highly Commended in Engineering Services Sector Award.
