The core of the piling division, closed down by contractor May Gurney in December last year, has joined a new company.
The business will trade as GM Piling and has been set up by RG Carter Group, a building and civil engineering contractor based in East Anglia.
No formal company or name purchase is involved in the new arrangement.
“Essentially most of the former staff and half the operatives are joining GM Piling,” said Mark Annetts, Marketing Manager.
“We have about a 12 strong team.”
The general manager will be John Earp, previously estimating and design manager with May Gurney.
Annetts said the company initially intends to pursue CFA and displacement piling.
The division began operating on 24 January from a new base in Kings Lynn, Norfolk. It currently has two contracts locally in Norwich, a first worth £30,000 and several potential jobs on a larger scale in London.
“The company is intending to operate throughout the UK,” said Annetts.
