Growth in regional demand and expectation of improving market prospects are the key drivers behind expansion of Dunelm Geotechnical and Environmental into the Scottish market.
The new Glasgow office, which will be headed up by Keith Salt who recently joined Dunelm, builds on the business’ existing operations in Scotland.
Salt said: “We are proud to establish a regional office in Scotland. Dunelm is focused on providing affordable and compliant site investigation services which repeatedly and consistently use best practices to ensure the delivery of customer service excellence and it is this philosophy upon which we intend to grow our reputation and market share in Scotland.”
According to Salt, Dunelm has seen steady expansion of sustained business activity for Dunelm north of the border and developed a significant client portfolio throughout Scotland. Recent high profile projects undertaken by Dunelm in Scotland include the Grangemouth Flood Protection Scheme and the Falkirk Gateway Scheme.
“This expansion will provide enhanced service delivery, as well as support Dunelm’s plans for sustained growth in the region,” he said.
Salt told GE that Dunelm’s Scottish operation offers a full complement of site investigation services supported currently by a team of experienced staff seconded from the company’s Durham and Manchester offices.
“This strategy affords the opportunity to fill key positions in the new office with local candidates who possess the qualities, attributes and professional experience to mirror our objectives of delivering service excellence and best practices,” explained Salt. “We will continue to expand the business in Scotland, both in terms of field and technical staff and boring and drilling equipment, at a pace and level closely in line with demands presented by existing and new customers. This will also feed into our plans for the selection of a bespoke facility close to the M8 corridor in the near future.”
