Expertise and team play are key to our success …

Welcome to the summer 2013 edition of the Finley Structures newsletter . There ’ s a lot to update you on since our last issue and we ’ ve been working on lots of exciting jobs up and down the country . More and more of our contracts seem to be getting further afield these days , but we don ’ t mind . It only demonstrates our ability to adapt and to work on large-scale projects whether they ’ re 10 miles away or 300 miles away . To name a few contracts we are currently working on , a 70-tonne contract for Carillion Building at RAF Leeming in North Yorkshire , a 70-tonne contract at Medimmune in Liverpool for PM Group , a 500-tonne contract at Ercall Wood Technology College in Telford , a 400- tonne contract at Priory Ruskin in Grantham and a 250-tonne contract at Wellington Place in Leeds all for Shepherd Construction . We ’ ve have recently completed a 300-tonne contract for Mansell Construction at Wellstream in Newcastle , a 150-tonne job for Vinci Construction at the University of York , a 65- tonne contract for Sir Robert McAlpine at Great North Park Community Centre in Gosforth and a 175-tonne job at Nuneaton Academy , also for Shepherd Construction . We have dedicated pages 4 and 5 to our 1,000- tonne contract at Drax Power Station as we believe this has been our most challenging contract to date . Our order book for the rest of the year is very healthy and future contracts are listed on page 7 . A lot of people ask me why we ’ ve flourished when dozens of companies in our industry have floundered . I put it down to our dedicated and highly-skilled workforce . Their expertise , www . finleystructures . co . uk


attention to detail and excellent team play makes us one of the strongest teams in our market place , and our performance is testament to that . We ’ ve recently added health and safety expert Mark Stones to our staff , he brings bags of experience with him as well as qualifications in an area which is hugely important in our industry . We ’ re also delighted to welcome Chris Hodgson to the team as our new senior estimator , who ’ ll work alongside Andrew Workman , and we ’ re looking forward to seeing what he can bring to the company . These are all exciting developments for Finley Structures as we continue to build , despite the so-called economic downturn , and I ’ m sure our new additions will complement our existing team very well . On a personal note , I continue to work closely with the Aycliffe Business Park ( ABP ) steering group as we continue to build and maintain relations , communication and inter-trading on the park . We ’ re starting to see the fruits of our labour with some improvements already taking place , while the events that are being organised are being very well-attended . It ’ s all very positive and we feel it ’ s important Finley Structures plays its part in it . I hope you enjoy this edition of our newsletter , and we look forward to the next . Regards John Finley
