There is something reassuring about a family and the values it signifies… togetherness, loyalty, trust, consolidation, confidence and, just as importantly, the independence of knowing those strong bonds will never be broken.
That is why, as Chairman, I am proud to say the Bowmer + Kirkland Group is a family – like no other. We stand as perhaps the most successful, privately owned construction, engineering and development group in the UK.
I firmly believe we reached this position by remaining privately held – and we intend to keep it that way. Crucially, that solid foundation enables all the companies and divisions within the group to operate – and flourish – autonomously.
We continue to build relationships through negotiation, partnering and cementing existing strong bonds with clients. Our clients are at the heart of everything we do and their total satisfaction is our goal.
We were awarded Investors in People accreditation in 1999 and have been regularly re-accredited. We continually invest in our staff many of whom embark on training programmes and academic courses. Once again this emphasises our commitment to family values.
I am intensely proud of what we have achieved at Bowmer + Kirkland and the standing we hold throughout the entire construction industry. It is that pride, echoed throughout the family of companies and the staff, that ensures peace of mind for our clients and satisfaction that a partnership with the Bowmer + Kirkland Group is a partnership to last.
John Kirkland OBE, Group Chairman
