M&E firm beats downturn with £5.75m in new orders
A mechanical and engineering company is proving the downturn hasn't badly affected commercial construction in the UK, by announcing £5.75 million of new orders.
Kershaw Mechanical Services has recently won six major new contracts across the UK, which will start before the end of 2008.
Sales director Ian Greenstock said: 'There is a lot of talk of downturn at the moment, but we are personally not seeing that yet.
'The work is there, and we are focusing on the things that we have done to build our company over the last 30 years - delivering an excellent service and great customer service'.
The company supplies commercial mechanical and electrical services to construction contractors around the UK. The company's new orders include:
Complete m&e services for two new primary schools, valued at £1.5m and £1.7m.
M&E services for two new academic buildings at the University of East Anglia in Norwich valued at £1m.
M&E services for an existing building being converted into an examination print room valued at £1m and a Waitrose store conversion valued at £400,000.
Kershaw Mechanical Services recently proved its green credentials by being awarded the ISO 14001 environmental standard. The Kershaw Group employs 183 people and has its head office in Cambridge.
Ian Greenstock added: 'We will continue to stay positive and focused on business over the next 12 months.'
