Galliford Try expands into Middle East

Galliford Try has registered a new business in Qatar. Galliford Try Qatar will focus on infrastructure projectsin the public and regulated sectors in joint venture venture with MFH, a wholly owned Qatari company also based in Doha.

“Development in Qatar is taking place in a planned and controlled way with substantial government funding and therefore presents a better opportunity for our international growth than other more mature commercial markets in the Middle East,” said Galliford Try International managing director Colin Crumlin.

“Even if building in Qatar stopped tomorrow it would take about 10 years for infrastructure to catch up so there’s plenty of work out there,” he added.

Heading up the Qatar operation is regional director Tony Williams who has more than 20 years experience overseas in countries such as Ghana, Oman and Russia. He also joins the board of Galliford Try International.

“We are currently considering further directions in which we can expand our international operations” said Crumlin.
