The world’s biggest arms company, Lockheed Martin, is a key player in the UK’s nuclear weapons industry. It manufactures the missiles and manages (along with Jacobs and Serco) the nuclear bases at Aldermaston and Burghfield where the warheads are designed, manufactured and refurbished. Another huge arms company, Rolls Royce, manufactures nuclear fuel rods at their plant in Derby. The involvement of these companies in the UK nuclear deterrent allows them a huge amount of influence over the government, which in turn seeks lucrative export deals for them. All of these companies were at the arms fair in 2015 and plan to be there again this September.
