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

By | Corporate News, Investment

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.

 

A one team approach for ENGIE Fabricom UK

By | Corporate News

A simple, well organised, strong structure

At the end of 2018, ENGIE Fabricom UK rolled out an initiative to simplify and bring together the UK business as one team, by providing a clearly defined and simplified structure.

ENGIE Fabricom’s vision is to become a more customer focused organisation with their greatest asset; their people at the heart of everything they do.

The one team approach will ensure that the focus is on delivering successful projects with a culture that learns, develops, attracts and retains great talent.

Richard Webster, CEO for ENGIE Fabricom UK comments:  “After a successful 2018 and a healthy order book for 2019, we have set some ambitious targets that can be reached by working together.  At the heart of our new initiative is a simplified structure focused on becoming one team by listening to our customers, understanding what their goals are, what challenges they face and how we can support them.  Here at ENGIE Fabricom we combine the talents of our people with our experience of engineering and construction to provide innovative solutions across a variety of markets including the power, utilities, chemical and renewable sectors.

Our core values of professionalism, integrity, trust and team spirit are the heart of our business, ensuring the whole team aim to be their customers’ partner of choice.”

As a result of the restructure ENGIE Fabricom has also announced some key role changes within the Company.  Paul Carvill will take the position of Chief Operating Officer and continue to focus on the overall business strategy, operational excellence and customer experience.  Craig Welford as Managing Director will now oversee all operational activities across the whole of the UK.

The ‘One Team’ approach further strengthens our Company strategy of delivering end to end solutions to our customers and creating a sustainable business for the future.

Another successful year for ENGIE Fabricom UK

By | Corporate News

Engineering and construction company ENGIE Fabricom UK has achieved continued growth in 2018 under the leadership of a new CEO.

Richard Webster was appointed to the role in January and has forged ahead with the Company’s ongoing commitment to the decarbonisation of energy.

This has seen further expansion into its activities in the offshore wind and energy from waste sectors.

Prior to 2012, ENGIE Fabricom UK focused on large modular Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) and construction work for the oil and gas sector.

It has since adopted a new strategy, targeting plant expansions and upgrades in niche sectors such as utilities, energy from waste, and renewables.

For example, in 2016, it was awarded a significant order from a major offshore wind operator to carry our remediation work on turbines off the coast of Suffolk.

Richard said: “As a Company, we have nearly 45 years’ consultancy, engineering, management and construction expertise across a variety of sectors.

“It’s our aim to bring this experience to the renewables industry where our reputation for providing innovative solutions without compromising on quality and safety is of great value.

“This year, we have launched a new website and design to more fully demonstrate our capabilities to clients and share news of the excellent work being carried out by the ENGIE Fabricom UK team.”

Successes over the last 12 months have included the expansion of ENGIE Fabricom UK’s Stokesley project offices, manufacturing and construction facilities along with their renewables office, with new recruits bolstering the engineering and design team to office capacity.

The business also operates from sites in Grimsby, Immingham, Lowestoft and Middlesbrough and its manufacturing and construction sites in Lincolnshire are currently busy with work on a number of significant projects.

As a reflection of its diversification into new markets, ENGIE Fabricom UK also attended the Renewables UK exhibition in Manchester and the Offshore Wind Conference in Hamburg as well as a number of skills fairs.

Richard said: “Our success is largely down to the professionalism and capabilities of our team so we have not only made new recruits throughout the business this year, but also invested in continued training and development for our employees.

“For example, four of our team have achieved prestigious Chartered Management Institute awards and we have gained the new ISO 45001 occupational health and safety standard at our first attempt.

“Furthermore, we have received recognition for our health and safety practices onsite at many of our projects alongside other positive feedback for the work we have done.

“This month also saw the roll out of Project Graphene which is a program to simplify and strengthen our management structure, bring the business together as one team and instill a positive and proactive culture.  The vision is to become a more customer focused organisation with our greatest asset; our people at the heart of everything we do and a collective goal of reaching a profitable turnover of £150m by 2022.”

“Our order book for 2019 is already looking very healthy and we are looking forward to another positive year ahead.”

Mark Wingate, Director of EPC & EPCm commented, “This award clearly demonstrates British Steel’s recognition of the ENGIE Fabricom project site team and how they have operated to the highest standards whilst challenged with extreme site conditions and timescales.

On behalf of the business, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved, such performances provide a significant advantage to the business when clients are looking to select suppliers for future projects.”

Kevin Copley, ENGIE Fabricom’s HSEQ Director commented, “This is an excellent recognition of the performance of the whole project team and is great for the whole Company. This award is especially important to us in supporting British Steel with the ongoing process in improving their safety performance across the site and shows they value the contribution of high performing organisations that can add to this process.

The project was undertaken in some very challenging site conditions against a tight schedule which makes the fact the project had zero injuries or near miss incidents even more impressive.”

Fabricom Oil, Gas and Power Limited change their name to ENGIE Fabricom UK Limited

By | Corporate News

Fabricom, Oil, Gas and Power Limited or FOGAP, has been our legal entity name for many years, but as our business has developed over the past couple of years, diversifying into new market sectors, our shareholders and our board have now agreed that this should be altered to reflect the changes in our business.

ENGIE Fabricom is the name we all recognise.  It is the name our clients and suppliers know us by too, therefore from today, this will also become our official Company name.

The move further strengthens our Company strategy of delivering end to end solutions to our clients and that is the main reason why we will now be called ENGIE Fabricom UK Limited.

As we already use the ENGIE Fabricom brand and logo on our website and signage around our buildings, these will not change.  Our Company registration number will not change.

We are proud of what we do and our constant innovation and development and this change of name gives us the opportunity to continue to do what we do best, which is applying our skills and expertise to enable us to become our clients’ partner of choice.

In short, our name is now a permanent fixture but our work will never stop evolving.
