Investing in our economy

As a homegrown Shropshire business, supporting the suppliers, contractors and sub contractors who are based in our community is a key priority for us.

Since 2011, our turnover has increased by 84% – we’re targeting £35m by 2022 – and, with 66% of the contracts we’ve delivered since 2012 being in Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin (value £111m), we’re keen that other businesses benefit from our growth.

Our supply chain radius varies from 15 miles (urban) to 25 miles (rural). 65% of a contract value is through the supply chain thereby boosting the local economy.

That supports a vast range of suppliers and sub contractors – in the last 12 months we used 105 subcontractors and 196 suppliers based in Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin. That resulted in a £6.8m boost to the economy. 

And, top to it off, 81% of our employees live in Shropshire or Telford and Wrekin!
