NRL at 40
Our 40th year in business
Over the past four decades, our Group has continued to grow in terms of our size, service capability and regional teams – and it’s rewarding to look at where we are today, as a global provider of a range of specialist engineering services. Services which we have continued to develop and gain the latest sector knowledge whilst drawing on our long-standing industry expertise.
Building up our expertise
We’ve had many milestones along the way, including identifying new ways to diversify and extend our operations.
We look at how our expertise has grown below:
Non-Destructive Testing for nuclear grade mechanical and piping components qualification and inspection projects
Technical Recruitment of temporary and permanent candidate for engineering companies
Rail maintenance contracting services introduced to support the UK’s rail infrastructure
International recruitment expertise expanded with the acquisition of Petrolic
Workforce solutions and consultancy expertise established through our Linx business
Translation and Interpreting languages services gained through the acquisition of CD Group, together with design and draughting services to support engineering projects
40 years in Cumbria
Since our founder Andrew Redmayne first established operations in Cumbria in 1983, the region has continued to be important to our growth. We’re extremely proud to have maintained an active part in the Cumbrian business community across the past four decades, as well as supporting many local initiatives.
What’s more, we continue to support the same clients today who we supported when our business first opened its doors. You can find out more about our 40 years in Cumbria, when Egremont Director Rebecca Graves sat down with in-Cumbria business magazine.
NRL over the years
A great deal has changed over the decades, including introducing new services and opening new branches. Our logo has also had a few updates to reflect the decades.

Supporting 40 charities
Keen to mark our 40th year in business in a way that best fits our culture, colleagues are coming together to collectively support 40 charities throughout 2023.
Where colleagues pledge to raise £500, NRL will be matching their donation with another £500 – and we’re pleased to have already made a number of donations to some great local and national causes that are close to the hearts of our teams.
