Through innovation, productivity and sustainable growth strategies, this business has been transformed into one of the UK’s largest privately owned construction, infrastructure and support services groups.
“More than 50 years ago, I started a small joinery business in Elgin in the North East of Scotland. As the years moved on, I wanted to create a multitrades business that would service the area around my home town. Now, with a comprehensive range of business units, more than 2,600 employees, and offices from Inverness to Sheffield – you can safely say we have succeeded in this… and then some. The geography we cover is much wider than I could ever have imagined when I set up the business aged 21. This is a fantastic achievement that wouldn’t have been possible without our loyal employees new and old, and our excellent relationships with clients”
