“Significant” Scottish contribution aids GRAHAM performance

Michael Graham

GRAHAM has announced a 36% rise in turnover to £767.5 million for the 2017/18 financial year.

The construction, facilities management and project investment group also reported profits of £13.1 million for this period.

The company, which has five offices in Scotland, established its first operation in Glasgow in 2003.

Executive chairman Michael Graham said, “Our Scottish business has made a significant contribution to the group’s performance and we’re now a very well established Scottish organisation, with strong roots across the country. Group-wide, we’ve grown our market share over the past 12 months whilst at the same time increasing investment in our people, our systems and our capabilities.

“A strong focus on our people and their skills remains a key priority, underlined by our Investors in People Platinum and Wellbeing accreditation and growing the number of apprenticeships through our in-house training academy.

“The company has also undertaken an extensive rebranding exercise, developing a ‘Delivering Lasting Impact’ principal which has been taken forward in all aspects of work.

“Our reserves have increased to £70.1 million, which is testament to effective working capital management and prompt supplier payment. We’re also pleased to report a record order book and pipeline of business across each arm of the company.”
