Skerritt turnover climbs to £46m

Nottingham building services contractor Skerritt’s turnover has climbed from £28m to £46.15m in one year, according to its 2007 results. Turnover increased by 67 per cent on 2006 performance.

Skerritt, which delivers mechanical, electrical and plumbing services to large-scale commercial and public sector developments, put its success down to the partnering arrangements and frameworks it has developed.

Managing director Stuart Hill said: “In 2006, we embarked on a five-year plan to double the size of the business. We aimed to do that by becoming the preferred contractor to a select group of major developers and construction companies.

“That’s exactly what we have done: One year into the plan, we are way ahead of that target and in a really strong position to weather the slowdown in the economy. As a result of strong partnering agreements, we have a substantial order book for 2008 and the order book for 2009 is already 40 per cent full.”

An additional 20 per cent full-time and contract staff were recruited in 2007 as a result of the increased workload.
