React Engineering emerged as winners at the recent Britain’s Energy Coast Business Cluster (BECBC) Awards.

The nuclear decommissioning and engineering outfit, based at Cleator Moor, took home the 'Business of the Year' trophy at the gathering of engineering and manufacturing peers.

React, known for providing project management solutions for nuclear decommissioning and environmental clean-up, was delighted to receive the high-profile accolade.

Phil Redfern, React’s Managing Director, said: “I am proud of every member of the team at React who have all contributed to this amazing success and this award is thanks to each and every one of them.

“We believe in empowering our people, encouraging entrepreneurial spirit, giving our team responsibility and opportunities to grow and develop their skills and capabilities to be the best they can be.

“We also believe if something is worth doing it’s worth doing to the very best of all our abilities.

“That focus on innovative thinking and quality delivery has paid dividends over almost 30 years as it has enabled us to develop relationships built on trust. Our customers value our approach, ethos and our capability to deliver sustainable solutions to complex industry challenges.

“We have established a long-term valued relationship with our key-client Sellafield Ltd and it seemed fitting that they handed over the award after so many years of working with them.

“Winning an award like this and celebrating together, along with our peers made up of so many innovative, high quality, high-performing businesses and organisations across the region, is both humbling and inspiring.

“From our learning and experience over the last three decades, we are always happy to share best practice with others on how to make decommissioning happen through technical capability and how we maintain a pipeline of fresh thinking coming into the industry.

“Any organisation which wants to find out more, or is interested in collaborating with us, our door is always open.”

Double success was celebrated on the night as React’s Resolve Engineered Solutions collaboration scooped the Collaboration Award.

Resolve is an alliance of four companies including React Engineering, Forth, PAR Systems and COMS, dedicated to delivering comprehensive engineering services.

React also maintains a keen interest in uplifting young people in their field.

They're proactive in providing educational opportunities via their React Futures scheme, created to promote Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) subjects and support the youth's career pursuits in engineering.

Phil said: “We have always been passionate about giving back to our communities and making a positive difference to those who might not otherwise have access to further education or career opportunities, especially in science and engineering. It’s part of our DNA at React and we will continue to try to inspire the next generation.”
