Harvey Group PLC has followed up the acquisition of Solmatix with the confirmation of new presence in Great Britain.
The privately owned firm which recently acquired renewable energy company, Solmatix has established a new office in Dunstable as part of a multi-million pounds’ strategic expansion programme. The new office will help facilitate further growth in Britain and allow the firm to maintain its customer focused service in South East England.
Harvey Group’s Operations Director, Herbie Watterson, said the strategic move was in response to the growing number of contracts the Newtownabbey M&E services company is winning in Great Britain.
“Over the past number of years we have won substantial business outside Northern Ireland and our new office which will initially accommodate up to 15 staff has been opened with a view to increasing our employment numbers beyond our current Group figure of 110 to around 150.
‘In the past couple of years we have invested around £2m across the business and our GB expansion will bring the total invested to around £4m by 2018.”
With a turnover of £30million plus per annum and 110 staff, Harvey Group has over 35 years’ experience in the design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of building services within every sector throughout NI and GB including Education, Healthcare, Pharmaceutical, Commercial, Office, Stadia and Leisure.
In the past year Harvey Group has completed a number of high profile projects at locations as diverse as Kings Hospital Windsor Walk, London; Sheffield Hallam University, The University of Ulster, Belfast; The Waterfront complex, Belfast; The Titanic Building, Belfast; Kingspan Stadium Belfast and the Queen’s University of Belfast’s Centre of Experimental Medicine.
