SES bucks the trend by expanding into Scotland

3 Nov 10 As tough conditions continue to grip the construction industry, Shepherd Engineering Services, has bucked the current trend of office closures to announce that it has expanded its operations into Scotland

In a drive to support its business strategy of “working closer with key clients in specific industry sectors", and to strengthen its position geographically, SES opened a new office in Glasgow city centre earlier this month. Its third new UK office in a matter of months.    

To lead the expansion, Colin Walker has been appointed as Divisional Director for Scotland. Colin has over 25 years’ experience of working in the construction industry, including management roles at NG Bailey where, before joining SES, he held the position of Managing Director (Scotland). Other key team members include, Edward McMahon and Scott Carey who have been appointed as Divisional Business Manager and Operations Manager, respectively. Both have a wealth of experience in the local market. 

Colin reports to Chief Operating Officer, Peter G Lewis who said, “This is a really exciting time for SES. For the first time ever we’re able to say that we operate on a truly national level. Our move into Scotland, as well as our recent expansion into Bristol and central London, has helped us align our services to those of our customers, and ensures that we continue to offer them a comprehensive service, irrespective of where they are in the UK.

“Building longstanding relationships with our customers, and providing well thought-out solutions to the challenges they face, has helped us sustain a robust order book through some of the toughest trading conditions of recent times. I’m confident that our strategic thinking will continue to see us provide customers with a first class service in the future.” 

SES head office is located in York, with additional offices in Newcastle, Sheffield, Manchester, Coventry, Bristol and London. 

Some of SES’s recent flagship projects include: Yell UK’s new Head Office in Reading; The London Clinic Cancer Centre; University of York; 5 star Rockliffe Hall, Hotel & Spa in Darlington and the redevelopment of Piccadilly Place in Manchester, as well as a significant number of BSF and P21 Health schemes.
