Group grows civils operation with six-figure equipment investment
West Yorkshire-based Caddick Construction Group has invested £700,000 in new plant equipment.
The move signals the firm’s plans to grow its in-house civil engineering business.
The investment, which includes two excavators, a JCB forklift truck and six new cabbed dumper trucks, forms part of the business’ continued drive to expand its capabilities.
Set to be used by Caddick Civil Engineering, the equipment also includes a road sweeper, which the business is rolling out across its project portfolio as part of its Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy – “Places for Life.”
The new equipment will support a range of services delivered by Caddick Civil Engineering, including site clearance, remediation, earthworks, building foundations, reinforced concrete works, and groundwork.
Caddick Civil Engineering forms part of Caddick Construction Group and works on behalf of the commercial, industrial, residential, and power generation sectors as well as providing services for local authorities.
Paul Dodsworth, Caddick Construction Group managing director, said: “The group is growing, but our growth will always be steady and sustainable to ensure we continue to be a stable and financially secure presence in our key regions.
“Owning our own plant and equipment to support the services of our civil engineering business forms a big part of our longevity in the industry, allowing us to provide continuity and efficiency for our clients.”
