About Pearson Engineering

For more than three decades, Pearson Engineering has provided Armed Forces with the mobility and counter-mobility equipment they need to succeed in their missions around the world. From our home in Newcastle upon Tyne in the United Kingdom, we are proud to be recognised around the world for our contribution to armoured vehicle programmes. We design products which help combat forces to defend, move and fight and to adapt quickly to maintain their battlefield advantage. Our innovative approach to providing ‘scalable battlefield mobility’ is based on delivering attachments for armoured vehicles which enhance their agility, adaptability and flexibility and which provide essential mission capabilities to Commanders.

We are located at Armstrong Works in Newcastle, which is a purpose-built armoured vehicle manufacturing facility. Together with our daughter company, Responsive Engineering, we combine our armoured vehicle experience with our class-leading manufacturing expertise, to also provide manufacturing, assembly, integration and test services for armoured vehicle programmes.

In 2022, Pearson Engineering was proud to receive the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category, in recognition of our exceptional export performance. This was the third Queen’s Award in the company’s history.
