Key markets remained ‘strong’ for the business with the outlook expected to achieve another set of record results.

“In uncertain times, cash is king. I am pleased to report that our liquidity has been phenomenal this year. The whole team are focused on working capital, ensuring valid debts are settled on time, in full, both up and down steam,” said Neil Simpson, Finance Director.

“We are far stronger because of the fast-paced challenges of the last two years, and this will stand the business in good stead over the coming year.”

The current year represents the company’s 125th anniversary with Managing Director, Neil Bottrill, commenting: “Our ‘family’ ethos has been maintained despite our continued growth, but also whilst working on some of the UK’s finest commercial, hotel and residential properties. It is a fantastic feat and testament to all who have been involved with the business, past and present.”
