M&E firms are typically the specialists with the largest turnover figures.
Little change has occurred in the table this year, as Balfour Beatty Engineering Services retains its top place, despite turnover dropping by more than a fifth. In fact, the only company to grow turnover was eighth placed T Clarke, and though this was only marginal at 1.9 per cent, it meant re-entry was secured into the top 10 this year.
The company’s half-year results, released in late August, revealed continued turnover growth, attributed to the acquisition of DG Robinson Mechanical Services last year.
But profits were down as the contractor said it had seen no real improvement in the trading environment.
