Edison Group establishes new headquarters in Irvine

Scottish-based UK and internationally operating construction and property business Edison Group has established its headquarters in newly refurbished premises at 65 High Street, Irvine.

The fast-growing business has taken over 2000 square feet of the 19th Century two-storey, Grade B listed building from which it aims to plot its long-term strategic development.

Edison Group founder and CEO Calum Melville said: “Irvine is a great location for us, offering lots of opportunities to win construction, refurbishment and project management contracts throughout Ayrshire and beyond. We already have strong relationships in the town and the central location of the office means that there is plenty of car parking for all prospective members of the team.

“We are firmly in the market to acquire businesses that are complementary to our group activities and are projecting sales of £20 million on a rolling 12 months basis by the end of 2023, driven both by further, already-planned strategic acquisitions and organic growth.

“Edison Group has decades of experience in starting, buying, building and growing businesses, both organically and by acquisition, driving operational and financial excellence and significantly increasing value for all stakeholders, so we believe we have the right ingredients to succeed in a challenging environment.”

Mr Melville added: “We are investing substantial sums to build an infrastructure and platform to drive growth over the next few years with an expanded offering which includes construction, project management, architectural services, bespoke joinery, furniture manufacture, interior design, interior fit out, all trades, driveways, landscaping, property maintenance and refurbishment.”

Late last year Edison Group acquired Glasgow-based GDC Design which is projecting sales of £4m in 2023. It operates throughout Scotland and as far south as Birmingham, providing premium bespoke manufacturing, interior fit, design and project management to local authorities, NHS, central government, charities, dentists and Tier 1 hospitality, retail and construction clients.
