New Major Projects Department
Please see our recently issued press release below:
Pat Munro (Alness) Ltd, the Highland based construction materials and services provider, are delighted to announce the extension of its existing services with the addition of a Major Projects Department. This will see the business complement and increase its existing civil engineering capabilities, with this new department focusing on larger scale projects having traditionally focused on contracts of sub £1.5m in the civil engineering sector.
This expansion is being supported by the addition of the majority of the experienced management team from Morrison Infrastructure in Inverness, following the decision of their parent company, Galliford Try, to withdraw Morrison Infrastructure from Scotland – ultimately resulting in an anticipated 250 Scottish job losses. Further recruitment by Pat Munro is expected over the next quarter / half year.
Speaking of the expansion Pat Munro’s Managing Director, Brian Munro, said
We are excited to have increased our capabilities and service offering to the civil engineering sector within the Highlands. We were saddened to learn of Galliford Try’s decision to shut down Morrison Infrastructure – particularly in our area – and were aware of the capabilities of their Inverness Unit. We are delighted to have been able to secure the services of the majority of their management team, have been encouraged by their enthusiasm to our approach, and are pleased to bring their roles back under the management of a local, Highland business”.
In order to accommodate this increase in staffing, Pat Munro will shortly be opening an office in Inverness which will also allow them to explore an expansion of their traditional geographical work area into Moray, building upon their recently established concrete batching plant on the outskirts of Elgin.
This addition continues the organic growth that Pat Munro has experienced in recent years, together with some strategic additions, most recently Carbon Dynamic – the sustainable, off-site building manufacturer – at the end of 2018.
