The company is truly international, having secured a number of multi-million pound contracts, both domestically and internationally, in 2015. This included a contract to fit out the British Embassy in Budapest and one to fit out the new Google Innovation Lab at the company’s headquarters in Belfast.
The company is bucking the apparent Construction trend in other areas as well, having increased in size to the point where it created 70 new jobs over the course of last year, while also gaining strength in the hospitality sector.
Ray Hutchinson, Managing Director of Gilbert-Ash, was unsurprisingly upbeat about the figures, stating: “While market conditions remain highly competitive, we are encouraged by the current order book and anticipate a further significant increase in turnover in 2016.
Our strategic focus on further developing the business in Great Britain has led to an increase in tender opportunities which will ensure continued medium-term growth.
In 2015 we were pleased to announce we had created 70 highly-skilled new jobs thanks to our consistent success with large contracts, bringing our workforce to more than 180. We expanded our base in London and moved to larger premises in the centre of the city. Gilbert-Ash has demonstrated an ongoing commitment to the UK market and we are confident about the year ahead.”
As always, the team at C-Link are delighted to hear about positive industry news and would like to congratulate Gilbert-Ash on its most recent successes. We aim to help Specialists throughout the United Kingdom enjoy similar success by providing a platform that is dedicated to link them with Professionals who are procuring construction work.
