Flight Press Release April 1956

The two photographs below shows the imposing headquarters of Dowty Nucleonics, Ltd., at Brockhampton Park, Andoversford, about eight miles from Cheltenham.

Dowty Nucleonics have had nearly eight years’ experience in atomic energy instrumentation, and their activities include the development of various items of nuclear equipment now standardized for national plants.

The company have acquired the fine 19th-century mansion to house their design and research departments. With its many acres of parkland on the fringe of the Cotswolds, it should provide an ideal location for this type of enterprise and for the team of about eighty specialists already working there under the direction of Mr. T. D. H. Andrews, A.M.C.T., A.M.I.Mech.E., A.F.R.Ae.S.

The electrical division of Dowty Equipment, Ltd., has lately been incorporated in Dowty Nucleonics, Ltd., and the design team at Royal House, Cheltenham, is moving to Brockhampton together with the sales and estimating departments and model shop. The factory at Tewkesbury, with its 200 employees, now becomes the production plant for Dowty Nucleonics.
