Galliford Try buys green water specialist

The acquired business produces a variety of engineered products for the water industry, which Galliford Try will use as a basis to develop a low carbon engineering offering, enabling products and raw materials to be as reused to reduce waste.

The deal will see a team of 40 from Ham Baker join Galliford Try while remaining at their current base in Stoke.

The acquisition will help Galliford Try prepare for the water industry’s AMP8 cycle, in particular addressing storm overflow challenges and decarbonising the industry.

Bill Hocking, Chief Executive of Galliford Try, said: “We are delighted with this acquisition which bolsters our position as a leading service provider to the water sector, with a growing capability in off-site build, capital maintenance and asset optimisation, following the acquisitions of nmcn water, Lintott and MCS Control Systems in the last 18 months.

“The evolution of our business means we are uniquely positioned to help our clients deliver the UK’s water needs through the improved resilience, efficiency and optimisation of their assets.”
