Ground engineering specialist Abbey Pynford has announced plans to grow its business over the next three years to deliver a turnover of £40M, up from £21M of sales recorded in the last 12 months.
The company has also announced the appointment of former Roger Bullivant director John Patch to strengthen its leadership team and support the growth plans.
According to Patch, Abbey Pynford is looking at organic growth of its existing business rather than acquisitions to meet its three year plan.
As well as advising the board, Patch has a six-month assignment as sales and marketing director, to initiate strategies to promote the brand, and enhance their sales to achieve a target of £40M within three years with corresponding profitability. The assignment includes developing a successor from a team of young, enthusiastic and talented employees.
“Abbey Pynford is an excellent company with a challenging strategic growth plan and an enviable range of ground floor and foundation related products and systems which are second-to-none,” said Patch. “There is no reason at all why profits in the specialist construction sector should not reach double figures.”
Abbey Pynford chairman Paul Kiss added: “We’re delighted to have John on board; he compliments a progressive and committed leadership team led by our managing director Adrian O’Grady.”
Patch previously played a pivotal role in the expansion of Bullivant over a period of more than 30 years. “I’m delighted to be a part, for the second time, of a privately owned company with market-changing aspirations,” said Patch.
