Contract win is milestone for Robertson Specialist Division

Craig Robertson

ROBERTSON Group has won £560,000 worth of work for SSE, marking the first time its Specialist Division will serve as a main contractor.

The firm will install external wall insulation at homes in the Dundee area. The contract win follows the appointment of Craig Robertson as managing director of Robertson Specialist Division earlier this year with the aim of doubling turnover within two years.

Craig Robertson said, “This business has ambitious targets for growth and if we want to meet those goals then securing larger contracts is essential. In the past we have served as a sub-contractor, both for other businesses within Robertson Group and for external companies. This represents the first contract where we will be the main contractor and illustrates the positive progress we are making.

“And while much of our focus previously has been on providing joinery services, we’re now looking to add even more strings to our bow, with the work we will deliver for SSE an example of what we can offer clients.”

The business has recruited a new commercial manager who will work with Craig to identify and secure larger contracts across Scotland. Jason Paynter joined the firm from Tilecraft, where he served in a similar role. A trained quantity surveyor and supply chain manager, he previously worked for Morris and Spottiswood.
