Pacific Building turnover soars to £13.25m
Construction and fit-out company Pacific Building has reported a 54 per cent year-on-year increase in turnover to £13.25 million.
The firm, which employs 35 people from its base in Hillington on the outskirts of Glasgow, saw takings rise from £8.63m in the 12 months to March this year. Operating profits for the year also rose by 139 per cent.
Pacific delivers complex refurbishments in “live” public areas such as airports, hotels, restaurants, pubs and offices across the UK.
And with a bulging order book for 2016 into 2017, the company is on track for an eighth successive year of growth.
Pacific Building managing director, Brian Gallacher, said: “We are delighted to have put in such an outstanding performance but maybe we shouldn’t be too surprised, because we have steadily increased turnover every year since our inception in 2005.
“We have a team of the utmost professionals, who are used to meeting challenges head-on and solving them in innovative ways that satisfy our clients.
“We have enjoyed continued growth, in part through our associations with global brands who continue to develop their business.
“By continually meeting and exceeding their expectations, we are rewarded with greater volumes of work. Our growth has continued to exceed our budgeted plans and is a credit to the efforts of the team here.”
The past year has seen Pacific complete projects for a prestigious client list that includes McDonald’s, Tesco, bar operators Mitchells & Butlers and Glasgow International Airport.
Mr Gallacher added: “One of our key strengths is our ability to protect businesses from unnecessary disruption during construction and fit-out.”
Lynne McKay, branch manager for the CIOB in Scotland, said: “As a valued training partner with the CIOB, Pacific Building continue to demonstrate their commitment to developing professionally qualified employees and we are delighted that this is clearly beneficial to their growth.”
