Galliford Try opens new Qatar business

Galliford Try has registered a new business in Qatar to focus on infrastructure projects in the public and regulated sectors.

Galliford Try Qatar LLC is a joint venture with MFH, a wholly owned Qatari company also based in Doha.

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

Galliford Try International managing director Colin Crumlin said: “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.

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