GRAHAM, one of the UK and Ireland’s leading construction, asset management and project investment businesses, has reached a major milestone, posting record end of year results for 2015-16. With Group turnover passing through the half billion mark at £508m, profit before taxation more than doubled to £17m, resulting in a net profit margin of 3.4% up from 1.4% the previous year.
Commenting on the momentous results, Executive Chairman, Michael Graham said: “This is a significant milestone for GRAHAM and one which demonstrates how our Group businesses continue to deliver exceptionally strong performances, across a range of sectors, throughout the UK and Ireland.
“Whether it is in Building, with the completion of a 90 week, £81m student accommodation project for Salford University; Civil Engineering, installing a 44m span road bridge in Croydon for Network Rail, which involved launching the multi span bridge over 10 busy operational rail tracks; Fit-out, where refurbishment of the Clayton Square shopping centre in Liverpool won the BCSC Gold Award; or Facilities Management, which has added its eighth University to its higher education client listing; GRAHAM is continually delivering landmark projects and achieving excellence in everything it does.
“None of this would be possible without the dedication and commitment of our 1,800 strong workforce, on which GRAHAM’s success is built. Knowing that they are trusted and their efforts valued, creates a high performance culture and it is no coincidence that GRAHAM has become known as one of the most attractive employers in the industry.
“By keeping business simple, being efficient and effective in all that we do and with a forward order book of almost £1bn, GRAHAM is well positioned to continue its growth from a position of strength.”
