They have expanded their services to include Mechanical, Electrical, Energy Efficiency & Insulation, Heating & Plumbing, Fire & Security, Kitchens and Bathrooms, Renewable Energy, Maintenance & Repairs, Design & Build and Refurbishment, keeping up with the ever changing market and providing solutions to a range of sectors including Commercial & Industrial, Residential, Healthcare, Education, Art & Leisure and Retail. They believe that having small home-grown qualities makes them stand out in a large scale industry. 

Stanley McGill, Managing Director said:

We are honoured to be recognised and included in such an innovative and varying range of SMEs. With a workforce of over 400 (and growing) and a healthy order book for the next financial year we believe the best is yet to come.
