Celebrating 30 Years of BVM

Celebrating 30 Years of BVM

BVM Ltd are proud to announce the celebration of their 30th birthday !

From their inception in 1989, BVM have been supporting customers with embedded computing solutions. Starting with their own VME and PMC mezzanine card solution designs (which BVM still support today), through to providing modern day IPC Solutions; Industrial Motherboards, Embedded Systems PC’s, Panel PC’s, Industrial Rack Mount PC’s, COM / SOM Modules – inclusive of producing supporting customised electronics & mechanical designs, ably assisted with their in house 3D CAD design software packages.

And it hasn’t all been about hardware; BVM have been producing operating systems, starting with the real time, process based, multitasking operating system of OS-9 through to producing some of the first embedded ports of Microsoft Operating Systems with Windows NT in year 2000 (when BVM became an embedded Microsoft partner) through to Windows, XP, WES7, 8.1 and latter day Windows 10 IoT.

BVM have been supporting customers in multitude of industries over its years, inclusive of Military & Defence, Security, Aerospace, Traffic Enforcement, Rail Safety, Medical, Nuclear Power Generation, Audio Visual  – as well as every day Industrial Automation & Control (Industry 4.0) applications.

Managing Director and company owner Rod Clarke said,

“it’s remarkable that our first 30 years has passed so quickly, I really don’t know where the time has gone. It’s been a thoroughly enjoyable and gratifying experience along the way; helping customers solve (sometimes) difficult application problems makes no two days ever the same”.

“What I do know is that we’ll be continuing our support for customers in helping them with their long term future. As an embedded systems provider, life has changed a lot for BVM over the years.  For the early part of our existence, we were a product supplier with able & competent technical in-house support.  Today, we’re a systems integrator utilising the technical knowledge that we honed in our early years  – which we’ve  combined with our background in design for manufacture to now produce custom designs befitting our exact customer needs”
