Creating a Safe and Sustainable Business
We have an ambitious and robust business plan to drive our growth, which includes targeting strategic larger contracts and frameworks – this reflects our ambition to utilise the skills and experience of our employees and continually evolve our client service offering.
An example of this evolution is our safe delivery of the Bicester Village Retail Outlet highways improvement project in 2018 which during the construction period continued to receive a staggering 6.4 million annual visitors. The scheme, at £9.1 million in value is one of the most significant that we have undertaken.
Financial strength is the backbone of our business and we’re pleased to report that turnover and profitability continues to increase year-on-year, indeed 2017/18 saw record turnover of £33.6M, up by 7.5% from the previous year. This was highlighted in 2017 when Fitzgerald Contractors were named in the Financial Times ‘1,000 of Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies’.
Being a sustainable business covers all aspects of our operations and over 75% of the contracts that we undertake are repeat business through our existing client base and long-term Framework agreements. We believe strongly that building, developing and maintaining long-term relationships with our clients is the key to a successful business and we therefore fully embrace a long-term partnering approach. Continuing to work to the highest standards of business integrity and ethical conduct is the pre-requisite to maintaining mutually beneficial relationships with our clients, employees, supply chain and stakeholders. Just some of the ways we do this across Fitzgerald Contractors is:
