Bassett Defence Services

In an uncertain world where conditions in the field evolve rapidly, a fast and flexible, truly broad-spectrum response is essential to maintaining optimal combat efficiency and meeting increasingly challenging demands. This necessitates a willingness to change and adapt in line with quickly shifting operational considerations. Our rapid re-engineering and design services tackle equipment obsolescence and supply chain challenges by helping the end-user maximise the effectiveness of already existing resources. Providing comprehensive Defence Engineering Solutions to a variety of tri-service requirements, our extensive manufacturing, re-engineering and refurbishment facilities allow us to supply anything from small machined parts to major fighting vehicle spares. Whether the necessary solution requires optimization or re-design of existing legacy material or an entirely new design we can be relied upon to meet your requirements both now and in the future. This means that we not only save you time and effort, but will also make the task of dealing with new, asymmetric challenges affordable. Building on proven strengths, removing old known design flaws, and adding improvements based on comments and feedback from real-world operators means that defence organizations benefit from process of evolution, rather than revolution.

Because our engineering effort is always run in parallel with a process of extensive dialogue with the customer, long-term value is assured. Feedback from the end-user is one of the most important parameters that we can take into account when designing and delivering a new solution onto the marketplace.Our sophisticated CAD/CAM design and CNC machining resources – taken together with a proven manufacturing track record – makes Bassett Defence Services your perfect partner for meeting the challenges of the future – quickly, accurately and in accordance with all your design specifications/requirements.
