Staff told of builders’ expansion plans


Shrewsbury-based Galliers Homes, with its sister company Cameron Homes, which has its head office in Staffordshire, is set to increase total turnover to £70 million this year.

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

Ian Burns, managing director, told his team that growth had been exceptional over the last 12 months, with around 25 new jobs being created, and this was set to continue throughout this year.

“Our operating area is widening throughout Shropshire, with new sites opening this year in Baschurch and Newport.

He said that as well as the companies completing 228 properties in 2017, there would be major investment in staff and infrastructure.

“We will be investing heavily in the training and development of our people and a new IT system is being introduced, starting from this year, which will improve efficiency and speed of operation throughout the firm.

“One of our most exciting plans is the launch of a new core house type range which is currently being developed, with our own specialists working with a firm of architects. This will be unveiled in the near future.

“A new Galliers head office is also set to open shortly in Shrewsbury and a new managing director is being appointed so the future is looking very bright for the company.

“Importantly, we are also aiming to gain five star rating in the Home Builders’ Federation customer satisfaction survey which monitors the overall experience of our purchasers,” he said.

Galliers is looking to recruit across a wide range of disciplines to strengthen its team.
