Whalley based firm Harrison’s Engineering has secured in excess of £1.3 m. in new contracts.
The rail based projects should safeguard the company’s current 32-strong workforce well into 2013, with the added potential of between four and six new jobs being created.
Joe Roberts, Company Director commented: “The management team at Harrison’s are succeeding in what are incredibly challenging trading conditions. We are absolutely delighted that we have confirmation of the new contracts and we’re pleased that there’ll be a knock-on effect to other small local companies such as ours for sub-contracted works. We’ve also been really grateful for the continuing support of our shareholders – it’s great to know our hard work has paid off.”
The new projects will involve more installation work for new railway stations as well as refurbishment of some of the engineering element for Network Rail.
Established in 1970 to service the quarrying, cement and road stone industries, Harrison’s has built on it’s original core business to offer its services to a broader and more diverse customer base. Notable projects have included their showcase work at Prestatyn railway station in Wales and the supply and installation of all of the structural steel work at the recently refurbished Rugby station.
