Aberla M&E expands with new Manchester officeNews
Posted by: electime 4th February 2020
Aberla M&E, part of the Aberla Group, has opened a new office in central Manchester to support its expansion and future pipeline.
The new office accommodation in Giant’s Basin, Potato Wharf is now home to the growing mechanical and electrical business, due to its proximity to some of Aberla’s largest contracts currently on site.
Local Crescent, Crusader Mill and No1 Old Trafford alone total 879-high spec apartments and all encompass work packages including full MEP, fire and security, lighting, ventilation, LV distribution, sub-main cabling, building management systems and electric car charging points.
Paul McCarren, CEO at Aberla Group commented, “We’ve secured some significant projects in Manchester and Salford and have a requirement for a local base to support both Aberla M&E management and operational teams. Our new office in Manchester is a long-term commitment due to the growing opportunities within the City and across the wider region and provides space for an additional 20 staff.”
Aberla M&E has seen revenue and profit rise over the last two financial years and the team has also increased to over 200 directly and indirectly employed staff.
In addition to the growing M&E pipeline, the Group has secured recent project wins with Cheshire West & Chester Council (solar PV), Stockport Homes (air source heat pumps) and Northwards Housing (air source heat pumps), which fall under the Aberla Renewables business. These multi-year secured contracts have helped to boost the Group’s turnover by 150per cent over the last 12 months, increasing from £6million to £15million.
Michael Fletcher, CEO at Praetura and Chairman of Aberla Group added, “The strength of our management team since the new leadership structure was implemented back in 2017, plus their implicit enthusiasm to provide exceptional service delivery to our partners, has resulted in the team working on some very prolific developments in the North West. On the back of this year’s significant Group growth, the new M&E office is a really exciting next step and shows the strength of the Group at a subsidiary level.”
