Cumbrian firm Stobbarts wins huge Sellafield contract

A Workington firm has clinched a £58 million contract at Sellafield.

Stobbarts Ltd fought off international competition to be awarded the four-year maintenance contract, which will start next month.

The firm employs about 250 people at its head office at Tarn How in Workington and its base at Sellafield.

John Stobbart, managing director, said: “I feel elated. We first started working on the Sellafield site around 15 years ago and the growth in the size of the company since then has been tremendous.

“To win such a massive contract shows great faith in Stobbarts, especially to win in the face of competition in this country and internationally.”

Part of its bid included a commitment to recruit more apprentices. The firm said it planned to increase its apprentice intake to up to eight a year.
