Wombourne-based building contractor Interclass Plc has started 2022 stronger than ever with an order book of £39 million.
Last year the contractor announced its intention to have a controlled period of growth following its £26million turnover in 2021 and has confirmed that it is well on track to achieve its £30million target turnover for 2022, in line with the company’s business plan for this year and beyond.
During the last three years, Interclass has seen a complete restructure, including the retirement of Construction Director, Peter Hood whilst former Managing Director, David Jones has transitioned into a Finance Director role, with Des O’Neill assuming the role of Managing Director.
Des O’Neill, Managing Director, says:
“It’s safe to say that over the last three years we have seen some changes within our construction division but it has given us the opportunity to interrogate our business to really understand what we are good at. We are now able to move forward with our current teams and complete confidence that we can deliver to an exemplar standard for our clients as we concentrate our efforts and expertise on faultless delivery, on time, on budget and not turnover growth of our business.”
The enhanced order book comes as a result of a number of recent project wins, not least securing the £13million project Chrysalis at Harplands Hospital which will be delivered over a two-year duration and is the firm’s largest project to date. The contractor is also into its second year on the Constructing West Midlands framework, where it has secured work with both new and repeat clients, including City of Wolverhampton College and Sandwell Council.
Despite difficult economic conditions, Interclass has continued to mitigate the risks from increased material prices and labour availability owing to our excellent relationships with our supply chain and suppliers alike.
Des O’Neill continues: “This really does bring our company motto to a whole new meaning. It has been a tough couple of years for the construction industry, but our teams have performed above and beyond what we could have expected of them, through some pretty extenuating circumstances, and now we really are ‘proud of our past and excited by our future’.
