Shrewsbury-based Galliers, and its Staffordshire sister company Cameron Homes, which is this year celebrating its 25th anniversary, is set to increase total turnover to £90 million this year.

Over 100 members of staff from both businesses gathered at Weston Park for their annual conference to hear the plans for growth.

Paul Morrissey, chief operations officer, told his team that progess had been exceptional over the last 12 months, with around 40 new jobs being created and this was set to continue throughout this year.

He said: “Galliers’ operating area is widening across Shropshire, with new properties being provided at developments in Shrewsbury, Baschurch, Hinstock, Hadnall, Bomere Heath and Newport, further sites opening this year in High Ercall, Baschurch and Church Aston and an exciting move into Cheshire.

“It is a tribute to our people that we have managed this dynamic growth at a time when there is a skills shortage in the industry.”

Paul added that as well as the companies completing 330 properties in 2018, there would be major investment in training and infrastructure.

“We will also be continuing to put customers at the heart of everything we do and aim to have the highest customer satisfaction ratings of any building company in the country.

“Our investment in the training and development of our people will continue, alongside the roll out of a new IT system this year, which will improve efficiency and speed of operation throughout the firm, and the introduction of a revised and improved core house type range.

“The future is looking very bright for Galliers and Cameron our four year plan is to have a combined turnover of £175m by 2022, completing a total of 540 homes a year,” he said.
