Conlon announces improved results

Preston-based Conlon Holdings has reported strong results for the 2012/13 financial year, achieving turnover of £36.4m and net profits of £1.7m.

Michael ConlonHaving increased both figures from the previous year by 7.8 per cent, the firm said it was pleased to have achieved a third successive year of improvement against a backdrop of challenging market conditions.

“Partnered projects have continued to be the cornerstone of our construction activity and we remain encouraged by work-in-hand and projects in the pipeline,” said company chairman Michael Conlon.

The company created two new divisions earlier this year, Yorkshire and Direct. Both have secured a number of projects to date and are expected to add significant value to the company.

Michael continued: “This year we have strengthened our reputation by securing our first ever silver award through the Considerate Constructors scheme together with four Local Authority Building Control Awards. Accolades such as these stand us in good stead when tendering for Local Authority framework contracts, as does our experience within the education, healthcare and commercial sectors.

“During the last year we have completed a number of projects across the north of England and are particularly proud to have delivered work on a section of Lancashire Business Park which was sadly devastated by fire in December 2011. “We are pleased that confidence is beginning to return to the market and are excited about taking the business forward and successfully delivering current projects during 2013/14.”
