Pat Munro (Alness) Ltd, the Highlands construction materials and services business, is targeting bigger contracts after recruiting the bulk of the management team from Morrison Infrastructure in Inverness.
Munro made its move after Galliford Try, Morrison’s parent company, announced it was withdrawing its infrastructure business from Scotland. The Alness firm has formed a Major Projects Department to go after larger-scale civil engineering projects, having traditionally focused on sub-£1.5m schemes. Further recruitment is expected in the coming months.
Managing director Brian Munro said: “We were saddened to learn of Galliford Try’s decision to shut down Morrison Infrastructure – particularly in our area – and were aware of the capabilities of their Inverness Unit. We are delighted to have been able to secure the services of the majority of their management team, have been encouraged by their enthusiasm to our approach, and are pleased to bring their roles back under the management of a local Highland business.”
Munro will open an Inverness office to expand its reach into the Moray area, building on a recently-established concrete batching plant on the outskirts of Elgin.
