ABERDEEN-based Aiken Group looks set to exceed last year’s £10 million turnover following the announcement that the company has secured deals worth more than £5 million in the last six months.
The upturn in business has also led to 8,000 square feet expansion at the company’s Crombie House headquarters, the expected addition of ten new staff to in 2011 and the announcement of plans to set up premises in Dubai to service a growing client base in and around the Middle East.
The 24 year-old already employs 50 staff at its Aberdeen headquarters, plus around 100 contractors worldwide.
Key areas of growth in UK and global markets include offshore accommodation upgrades, repeat business for new modular builds, upgrading of clients’ modular units, offshore door and window maintenance, plumbing, E&I, HVAC and refrigeration, integrity testing and facilities management business.
Aiken Group managing director, Danny Donald, said: “We listen to our clients’ needs, and have acted to ensure that Aiken Group becomes the ideal ‘one stop shop’ from project conception through to completion for all new and upgrade projects, and maintenance services.
“Positive thinking and actions at all levels of the company have resulted in substantial growth in new business, improved facilities, internal restructuring and the planned creation of approximately ten new jobs in 2011.
“An increasing amount of work in and around the Middle East has led Aiken Group to work alongside a well established Dubai company to create a base there so that we may be geographically well placed to service our overseas customers’ needs and expand our global business.”
Aiken Group is headquartered at Crombie House, 72-90 Crombie Road, Aberdeen, AB11 9QP. For further information visit www.aikengroup.com or call (01224) 244300.
