Shepley Engineers Ltd - Profile Banner


Shepley Engineers Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of Renew Holdings plc. Based in Cumbria we are a major multidisciplined contractor and project manager specialising in term contract works predominantly within the nuclear and chemical process plant environments. Our work involves high integrity site and workshop activity within these particularly challenging sectors. In addition, Shepley has also developed a highly specialised capability and excellent reputation for the sympathetic restoration, strengthening and conservation of historically significant iron and steel structures.


Brief History
Shepley Engineers Limited was founded in Manchester in 1947 and has had a permanent presence at the Nuclear Establishment, Sellafield, since that time. In 1948 we were responsible for the installation of stainless ducting systems on the Windscale Reactors, and the early 1950’s with the commissioning of the world’s first commercial nuclear power station at Calder Hall. Via both organic growth and complementary acquisitions we have become established as a major contractor. We have two wholly owned subsidiaries :

  • PPS Electrical - an electrical and instrumentation installation specialist
  • West Cumberland Engineering - a class 1A manufacturer / fabricator and precision parts machinist  

Our range of service offering means that we are engaged in a number of capacities from main contractor to sub-contractor and in some instances as advisor and consultant. We work individually or in collaboration with complimentary service providers or partners and a significant proportion of our current workload is delivered via long term framework agreements. It has been necessary to develop our processes, systems and culture to be effective and responsive across the full range of these engagement arrangements. 

We remain proud of our health, safety, security and environmental performance. Achievements in this area remain the number one corporate objective and this is actively supported from the executive board and down through the entire organisation.
