Livingston-based Maxi Construction Ltd. has continued its business plan of steady profitable growth and has seen turnover increase to over £11m (up from £8.55 million) in their accounts for the year ending September 2014.
Profit before tax dipped from £377,000 to £316,000, though the Group said this remained an “acceptable level”. A strong order book for the following financial year will see turnover increase again. Projects remain diverse in nature including retail and office refurbishment, new retail shell units, garage refurbishment, leisure refurbishment, historic buildings and school extensions ranging in value from £25,000 to £2,500,000.
Maxi Haulage Ltd. and sister company Maxi Warehousing Ltd. achieved excellent growth with turnover increasing by nearly £5m to £52m and invested £2.3m in fleet expansion and replacement, and has now brought into use a new £3.3m depot in Warwick with a 40,000 sq. ft. warehouse, large canopy, excellent handling and transhipping facility and large concrete trailer park. This is also adjacent to their existing 80,000 sq. ft. heated warehouse.
