Woodhead Group builds on success with 27% sales growth

East Midlands-based construction firm Woodhead Group is celebrating after exceeding its 2015 targets and achieving record turnover of just over £43m.

The past twelve months has seen the company successfully complete a number of key programmes of work, including the four-year Lincoln Castle Revealed project, the National Civil War Centre in Newark, which is the first of its kind in the UK, and the successful completion of a £30m framework to deliver over 350 diverse projects for Babcock Dyncorp and the Ministry of Defence.

By approaching projects differently and focusing on creating a better experience for all, the group has seen a sales growth of 27%.

Managing director David Woodhead said: “We have grown at quite a pace over the last few years and what has been achieved has been remarkable.

“I’m very proud and grateful for all the hard work put in by our staff and supply chain. Our achievements, whether they are related to projects or individuals, are a testament to everyone.

“As we look ahead, we are determined to ensure our growth remains effective, profitable and sustainable, focusing on outcomes and creating a better experience for all.”

Woodhead Construction began work on a number of other multi-million pound projects in 2015 including the construction of the Technology Entrepreneurship Centre at the University of Nottingham, conservation of the historic Delapre Abbey in Northamptonshire and a four-year housing programme for Bolsover District Council.

The company, based in North Nottinghamshire, is targeting 10% growth in 2016 – the year it celebrates its 70th anniversary.
