ENGIE Fabricom UK Unveils Ambitious Plans to Grow the Multi-Million Pound Business

By | Corporate News, News | No Comments

One of the UK’s leading engineering and construction companies – ENGIE Fabricom UK – has introduced a new organisational structure that will drive the business to reach its ambitious target of achieving a turnover of £150m by 2022.

 

Operating from five sites across the UK – including Grimsby, Immingham, Lowestoft, Stokesley and Middlesbrough – the business has restructured its management team and made three senior appointments as it strives to modernise operations and adopt a more holistic approach throughout the full organisation.

 

And the new approach forms part of ENGIE Fabricom’s plans to grow in the decarbonisation of energy space, raising its client base in sectors including the offshore wind and energy from waste sectors.  This comes on the back of the business having already worked on major offshore wind projects including SSE and Npower’s Greater Gabbard, Lynn and Inner Dowsing, the Humber Gateway and Ørsted’s Burbo Bank.

 

Speaking about this new team-based approach, Richard Webster, CEO at ENGIE Fabricom said:  “Now is absolutely the right time to adopt this more circular approach as we make the shift from our workforce historically delivering on oil and gas Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) projects to capitalising on market opportunities – like the renewables sector – where there is a huge demand for the skills of our workforce.

 

“This is very much focused around working as one team with a simple, well organised and robust structure to ensure that our greatest asset – our people – is at the heart of everything we do. We are committed to forging a culture whereby we continue to learn, develop and attract and retain great talent.

 

“With a track record for delivering high levels of customer service, we believe this approach will help us strengthen the existing relationships we already have, as well as attract new clients who are keen to take advantage of our capabilities in the increasingly competitive green sector.”

 

Heading up the new initiative alongside Richard is Paul Carvill, newly appointed COO (pictured above) and the Company’s Managing Director, Craig Welford, who both have extensive experience in engineering, construction and project management, along with Finance Director, Claire Bateman and HSEQ Director, Kevin Copley.

 

As part of the restructure the business has seen four senior figures appointed into new roles including Clive Rounce, who is now Head of Continuous Improvement, Nick Maynard, Head of Procurement, as well as Jo Fox, Head of Finance, and Andrew Stephens, Head of Business Development.

 

To bolster the team, new appointments have also included an Interim Commercial Director, Mark Bryant, who has over 35 years’ global experience in the power industries and a new Proposal Manager, David Livingstone, who has a strong commercial background in risk management.

 

Richard said: “With already a very healthy orderbook for 2019 and an ambitious pipeline, we are extremely confident that we have the right people in place to deliver and secure all our contracts as we strive to grow to a £150m business by 2022.

 

“To do this we will be working as one team to maximise delivery and continue to bring to the market the complete turnkey solutions we have become known for. By putting our people first and focusing on our future, we can make the best use of our resources to continuously improve and achieve a secure and sustainable future for our business.”

 

ENGIE Fabricom is part of the global energy group ENGIE, a 150-year-old energy and services provider with 150,000 employees operating across the world. The business provides a complete turnkey solution from project concept to completion across sectors including renewables, oil and gas, power, chemical and energy from waste. With over 43 years’ experience in high level engineering and construction the business employs 1000 highly skilled employees.
