Unit Engineers and Constructors Ltd

Origins

The company was established in 2004 to take advantage of the opportunities for business growth in the oil, gas and power sectors in the West Wales area. Other motivations included creating employment in a traditionally deprived area and challenging national companies in generating work within the local community.

Success Factor

The company has achieved success by targeting major projects, ensuring inclusion on clients’ bid lists by pre-qualifying at the early stages of a project and building on opportunities once established. A key driver is producing a quality product delivered on time and within budget.

The Future

Unit Birwelco has recently set up a partnership with Basrah-based engineering company Cubic Engineering Contracting Co, which will strengthen the company’s already growing presence in the Middle East. Following the completion of several significant contracts with Russian companies, Unit Birwelco is looking to continue to increase its presence within this area. Over the next five years the Group aims to consolidate its acquisitions and continue a path of controlled expansion. Market focus will be on the process and energy sectors.
