Keltbray has published its fifth annual Sustainable Development Report. In this edition the company outlines how it has delivered impressive growth against a backdrop of an increasingly uncertain economic climate.
Amongst key highlights was a 13% growth in turnover for the company (more than 12% ahead of the market), and an entry into the top 50 in the Sunday Times Top Track 250 league table; climbing 17 places. The company has also invested around £10m in plant and machinery, diverted over 99% of its construction waste from landfill and increased fundraising initiatives by 11% to £323,000.
Chief Executive Officer for Keltbray Group, Brendan Kerr, said: “2017 was a good year for Keltbray. We grew turnover by 13% to £418 million and considering that the UK economy as a whole grew around 1.7%; and the construction sector only 0.7%, this is a result we are very pleased about. As we grow, we remain focused on health, safety and wellbeing. Last year we made significant progress in these areas, and our accident rates may be amongst the best in the industry, but only zero accidents will do, and we must ensure that everyone goes home safe after each working day.”
