Babcock & Wilcox Technical Services Group, Inc., formerly known as BWX Technologies, Inc. (or BWXT), is the group that operates the Y-12 National Security Complex, and a member of the Los Alamos National Security, LLC. The group also holds the contract to manage the Pantex plant in Texas, alongside Honeywell and Bechtel Corporation. They are also a part of Lawrence Livermore National Security, LLC (LLNS), which was awarded the Management & Operation (M&O) contract to operate Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, on May 8, 2007, to commence on October 1, 2007.

After Babcock and Wilcox emerged from bankruptcy in 2006, that company and BWX Technologies (both subsidiaries of the McDermott International, Inc.) consolidated operations as The Babcock and Wilcox Companies,[1] headed by President John Fees.

The company is headquartered in Lynchburg, Virginia, with offices in the downtown district of the city.
