Balfour Beatty plc is one of the big players in international engineering, construction and services with a total turnover of over £3.1bn. Its rail companies account for £700M of that with 6250 employees.
There are then 9800 employed by Balfour Beatty building and services and nearly 10,000 in engineering and services. An investment and development team is also an important part of the business.
Balfour Beatty's rail division can trace its routes back over 100 years, and prior to privatisation was the UK's largest private rail contractor.
It has since continued to expand with a number of notable company acquisitions, both in the UK and abroad that have dramatically widened its spread of experience. It prides itself on safety, quality and customer service with the aim of being 'the partner of choice for rail infrastructure solutions.'
It has a worldwide reputation and is the market leader in electrification in the UK, US, Germany, Austria, Sweden, Italy, Spain and Malaysia.
