UKCG and NSCC to explore merger

Major contractors could join specialists in a new member organisation after the UK Contractors Group and National Specialist Contractors’ Council announced they are exploring a merger.

UKCG director Stephen Ratcliffe will step down in June and will work with NSCC CEO Suzannah Nichol to “explore the opportunity for the contracting supply chain to work more effectively together”.

In a joint statement, the organisations said: “Over the last 12 months, NSCC and UKCG have found that they share a common position on a range of issues and both organisations recognise that the key to a successful industry is trust within the supply chain.

“UKCG members have expressed a desire to strengthen the voice of contractors and NSCC members wish to work much more closely with their tier 1 client base.

“NSCC and UKCG representatives are currently discussing how a strong collective voice for the contracting supply chain in construction could be realised leading to a more efficient and collaborative industry. This could include a new organisation bringing together UKCG Contractor Members and Trade Associations currently in membership of either NSCC or the UKCG.”
