New Apprentices

After the successful year of first year apprentices through 2017/2018 three more apprentices are due to start at the beginning of August. Cahill has a strong believe in investing in the future and with the experience of the existing workshop team passing down their knowledge we believe it is the correct time to expand the team and build for the future.

Summer 2018

The heatwave is gone and we are now looking back on a very successful summer for Cahill. During the glorious three months of weather circa 2000 tonnes was supplied and erected. Earlier in the year the whole production process went through a time in motion study which has now enabled the streamlining of production and in turn making the whole process more efficient enabling a successful increase in output.

Spring 2018

After the cold months and what seemed to be a minor lull in the construction industry, 2018 is looking to be a very promising year. Cahill are currently working all over the South of England from SE Kent across to Cornwall in all of the major sectors.The workshop is currently producing in the region of 140 tonnes per week for the numerous projects currently on going and throughout March, April & May circa 1600 tonnes will be produced and delivered to site.

New Staff Members

Due to our current strong order book and steady pipeline of future work opportunities Cahill have taken a strategic decision to further strengthen our contractual operations and sales department. We would like to welcome Colin Grant as our new Quantity Surveyor, with over 25 years’ experience within the steel industry in both surveying and contract management. This will enable contracts to run even more efficiently and better service our client’s requirements. Further expansion to the Contracts Team, Cahill would like to welcome Lee Parkinson who is joining the company as site manager. Cahill would also like to welcome Richard Rackstraw to the team. Richard a steelwork estimator with over 10 years experience and a wealth of industry knowledge will immediately strengthen our ever growing sales team. This in turn will help maintain our company expansion plans going forward into 2017 and through to 2019 The company is curently half the way through a five year growth plan and have achieved a 30% uplift in turnover and profit year on year. This all falls inline with the companies target of a yearly turnover of £15 million by 2019.

Cahill acquires PDF Erection Services Ltd

From December 2017 our newly formed Cahill Erection Services Limited takes over National steel erection company PDF Erection Services. Improved market conditions along with increased turnover has lead us to make the strategic decision to bring back in-house Steel Erection operations for major projects. This will enable us to better service our client’s requirements. CESL day to day will be controlled & overseen by Operations Manager Paul Chalke who is a qualified steel fabricator by trade and has spent the last 15 years contract managing for PDF. Initially we will be operating with 5 erection crews for major works supplemented by a further 3 number 2 man crews to undertake smaller works,variations, snagging and on-site welding activities. The recent takeover will also allow us to undertake in-house site engineering. CESL will be carrying out the erection of structures directly for Cahill whilst continuing to support the long established existing client base PDF had built operating nationally. The business has already secured a steady pipeline of work taking us through to the end of March 2018. Alternatively contact Paul Chalke on 07974 767573 / 01300 345 525
