A North Wales independent engineering, environmental and planning consultancy is celebrating a 25 per cent growth in turnover in the last financial year.
Caulmert, which has offices in Bangor and St Asaph, saw turnover increase from £2m to £2.6m in the year to 31 July 2016.
And the headcount at the employee-owned firm is now set to top 50 as it enters its eighth year of trading.
Founder and managing director Mike Caulfield said: “Caulmert is definitely the biggest and fastest-growing firm in our sector in north Wales. We’re now winning work from much bigger and longer-established rivals.”
The company also has offices in Altrincham and Nottingham and a UK project base stretching from the Isle of Lewis in the Scottish Highlands to the Isle of Wight.
Internationally, it has also carried out work for clients in Indonesia, Jordan, Lithuania and Sweden.
Caulmert works in commercial, industrial, education, waste, renewable energy, residential, healthcare and infrastructure developments.
Mike added: “The scale of our projects ranges from small inspections to multi million pound developments for blue chip international clients and has worked with companies including Willmott Dixon, Stoke City FC, Wynne Construction, TGI Fridays, Viridor, and Airbus.
“We have recruited a team of very experienced consultants drawn from both the public and private sectors and from operational, industrial and consultancy backgrounds.
“We are agile because we are small and unencumbered by many layers of management for decision-making. We look after our employees’ personal and professional development, which I think is also why we have attracted some very high calibre specialists to work for us.
“It’s thanks to their commitment and expertise that we are growing so quickly and strongly. Because we are an employee-owned, everyone benefits from our success.”
