Barnfield enjoys 10 per cent growth in 2019

The Nelson-based Barnfield Group posted a second successive year of growth, with turnover up double figures for the 12 months ending December 31, 2019.

The family-run business which includes construction, development and investment saw turnover climb to £89.2m, compared with £81.3m the year before. Pre-tax profits rose from £6.6m to £6.65m.

Barnfield is currently involved with more than 30 sites, mostly in the north west, and has an £80m pipeline of projects for the current year.

Tim Webber, chairman and managing director of the Barnfield Group, said: "We have taken the opportunity over the last 12 to 18 months to build on our market-leading position within the industry, something we never take for granted.

"We remain focused and confident as we work through the current crisis and challenging times over the months ahead. All but one of our live sites remains open, albeit at a reduced rate of activity to ensure that we’re taking all the necessary precautions to enable us all to work safely. It is likely that this will have the effect of pushing some work back into 2021, however, to date we have not had any new contracts cancelled or postponed."
