The Precision Group celebrates record financial year with c£10 million turnover

Leading multi-service provider, the Precision Group, is celebrating the company’s most successful year on record, following an intensive period of restructuring, investment and acquisitions.

The firm, which employs over 300 people throughout Ireland, provides a diverse range of managed services to business and industry including; facility management, asbestos removal, thermo-chemical cleaning, industrial cleaning, specialist welding and mechanical and heating services.

Announcing a turnover of c£10 million, the company – which has offices in Belfast and Campsie – acquired a number of specialised service providers, most recently asbestos removal and thermal insulation experts, Chieftain Insulation, to bolster its commercial offering.

Speaking about recent growth, company founder and board member, John McFadden said;

“Having started the company over 30 years ago, I’m thrilled to see it grow from a local cleaning company to become one of Northern Ireland’s most diverse business service providers.  Having recently restructured the company and appointed a new Chairman and Managing Director who have brought significant strategic management and business experience, the Precision Group has gone from strength to strength. We have seen rapid growth – particularly in the power industry – and we expect this trend to continue over the coming years.”

Precision Group Managing Director, Kevin Williams added; “As well as recent restructuring and acquisitions, we have made a significant investment in the continued up-skilling of our workforce who are increasingly able to deliver very specialist technical services to business and industry. We offer many unique solutions not readily available from other firms, particularly in our process equipment refurbishment offering, with orders now coming in from as far afield as China.”

Established in 1982 as a cleaning company, the Precision Group is now probably best known for its asbestos removal offering, being the number 1 firm for this service across Ireland. However, according to Precision Group Chairman, Jim Stewart CBE, this is just the tip of the iceberg for the company;

“The Precision Group is providing services right across Ireland, UK and Europe as well as opening up new markets in Asia, particularly in the oil and gas and power industries. Global economic recovery – as well as an appetite for growth from businesses at home – means we have signed a number of significant contracts recently in both the public and private sectors and we hope to announce these soon. We have also recently rebranded the company and this; coupled with our positive reputation among our customers, means we are confident of continued expansion in line with our company growth strategy.”
