The McAllister Group, one of the UK and Ireland’s leading environmental solutions providers, has revealed a £2m investment in fleet and machinery over the past twelve months to allow the firm to respond proactively to client requirements on major infrastructure projects across GB and Ireland. Within the last year, the Group has also grown staff numbers to 100+ as the company seeks to further establish its position in the marketplace as one of the Industry’s trenchless technology specialists.
The McAllister Group has undergone a phenomenal phase of growth in recent years as the company seeks to develop its service offer for major infrastructure, utility and transportation companies. The Group has in recent years established a reputation for the innovativeness of their No-Dig solutions and ability to deliver complex time-bound projects. This reputation has been honed in recent years across Britain and Ireland and has been reflected in the company’s success in winning multi-million major framework contracts both sterling and euro.
Established in 1971, the McAllister Group has evolved from its roots as a drain and cleaning specialist operating in Newry to become established as an UK expert in the application of No-Dig technologies garnered on projects for the UK’s major Water & Sewage Companies (WASCs) and Transportation Companies. The respect for the Group’s expertise resulted in an approach by clients to become involved at the Project Design stage for planned major sewer rehabilitation projects to be undertaken in London and surrounding areas.
To facilitate the delivery of major projects and contracts, the McAllister Group has provided additional support to its teams in Ireland and the UK through the acquisition of a top-of-the-line brand new RECycler® unit, a state-of-the-art Relining Truck, a new Robotic Cutting System, new Jetting Vans, JetVacs and new CCTV Systems. The Group is working closely with Invest NI to upgrade the company’s IT Infrastructure, work processes and marketing/business development efforts to strengthen the Group’s ambitions for further growth.
The Group has recently moved its base of operations in the UK to Iver which is 15mins from Heathrow Airport so as to be closer to major customers and major ongoing rehabilitation works. In 2016, the Group also opened a North-West office in Eglinton to facilitate both commercial and residential customers in the North West and North Coast areas of Northern Ireland. Commenting on the company’s growth Managing Director Ireland, Peter McAllister said:
“The McAllister Group is very much focussed on building the business and securing further contracts through continuing investment in our people, products and services, building our relationships with existing/new clients and developing and positioning our brand as a market leader locally and internationally. The £2m investment in extending our fleet aligned to the rise in our staff numbers is evidence of our commitment to our customers”
Managing Director UK, Leo McAllister further added: – “Within the last decade, the McAllister Group has opened offices in London to facilitate the development of long-standing relationships with major clients including Thames Water, London Underground and Network Rail. Over the last 10 years, we have developed our experience curve and technical knowledge as a Group working on over 200 projects within London and the Greater London region. We have built a business which has been underscored by excellence in our products, client solutions, service delivery and in the expertise of our employees whose dedication and commitment have been instrumental in our growth”.
