Procast Group opens first north east office
Principal contractor Procast Group has expanded its Scottish presence with the launch of its first office in the north east.
The Aberdeen office is set to house a team of 12 staff, supported by a robust sub-contractor network. Among these staff members, five new positions have been created, including roles for a surveyor, contract manager, site manager, admin apprentice, and cleaner.
The company, which currently employs over 130 staff, carries out retrofitting work and innovative multi-trade contracting projects across Scotland and the North of England.
The new office on Ardarroch Road, just off King Street, will offer a hub for the company’s existing and future projects. It marks approximately one year since Procast Group secured a place on its first major framework in Aberdeen for the repair and refurbishment of void social properties for Aberdeen City Council.
Project manager Peter McLaughlin will head up the office, offering all the group’s subsidiary services to the area such as Procast Building Contractors, Procast Property Services, and Procast Energy Services.
Derek Innes, owner and managing director of Procast Group, expressed his enthusiasm for the company’s expansion into Aberdeen, stating: “Our new office will kick start a year of growth throughout the UK and cement our commitment to growing our business in the north east. Procast Group’s services are truly unique and we are confident our expansion onto the region will bring about great opportunities both for ourselves and for the local supply chain.
“Utilising local materials and partnering with local companies has been our philosophy since we established in 2007, and we are keeping true to that with our work in the north east.
“We are seeing an increased demand for our specialised services in the region, so it became worthwhile to invest in the space, refurbishment, and van fleet to support operations.”
The office is the third in the company’s network, complementing its headquarters in Hamilton and a second office/training facility also in Hamilton with more locations in the pipeline.
