Offsite specialist secures investment boost

OFFSITE specialist the McAvoy Group has announced it has secured a multi-million pound investment from London-based Blantyre Capital.

It was important for our staff, our customers and our valued supply chain to join forces with a dynamic and reliable investor who will help accelerate our growth.

“We have our strongest project pipeline for many years and in a diverse range of sectors. Partnering with Blantyre will enable us to leverage industry-leading offsite solutions across the UK and Ireland and to continue to develop our award-winning digital construction strategy.”

We are confident in McAvoy’s growth potential and we are looking forward to a highly successful and productive business partnership.”
