EM, a subsidiary of Mouchel, scored 140 out of 180 under the Highways Agency’s strategic alignment review tool (StART) assessment.

Bringing up the rear were: Galliford Try on 101, BAM Nuttall on 95; and Lagan Construction with 92.
StART is benchmarking tool to provide the Highways Agency with a detailed assessment of the supplier’s alignment to the agency’s own strategic direction. The more that the supplier positions its business in alignment with the Highways Agency as its primary client, the higher its score is likely to be.
The assessment reviews how well the contractors were aligned in six key areas – leadership, collaboration, supply chain, delivering value, diversity & inclusion and sustainability.

EM managing director Dave Wright said: “We are delighted to have achieved a score of 140 in the StART assessment and to be ranked in first place amongst our peers. This result shows the hard work EM and our supply chain have put in to understanding and aligning our business to the agency’s future strategy and direction.”
