Warrington-based engineering firm, BGEN have purchased Stoke-based Radway Control Systems to further its reputation in the heavy-industrial sectors, and advance its ambitions in renewables and steel. Radway Control Systems specialises in automation, control and information systems, a factor that BGEN believe will lead to technological advancements and business growth in the coming years. Chief Executive of BGEN, Robin Whitehead said:

“When we rebranded to BGEN we stated we wanted to be recognised as an independent market leader in the provision of world class multi-disciplinary engineering solutions for UK and international customers,”

“Strategic acquisitions were part of that realising that vision, and the addition of Radway Control Systems provides excellent synergies with our existing technology team and exciting growth opportunities.”

The acquisition will see the Radway Control Systems’ senior management team among the 30 new employees to join BGEN, with the Stoke headquarters absorbed into BGEN’s UK regional office network.


As part of the acquisition, Ian Oliver, managing director – technology at BGEN will oversee the transition into BGEN operations with completion of the process expected in Q2 2023. Ian Oliver said:

“Radway Control Systems has some great experience in the industrial automation and digitalisation space, and we’re looking forward to integrating the team into our operations.”
