Bethell embarks on major expansion

Trading in the North West since 1865, we are expanding our workforce following an expected surge in revenues.

Bethell, is set to embark on a major expansion in 2020 as it looks to expand its workforce by up to 30%.  Bethell, which has operated in the North West for over 150 years, has gained a number of significant framework contract wins during 2019 with Utility Companies, Local Authorities and other key infrastructure clients.

The group also successfully re-entered the multi-utility connections industry a few years ago and this business has grown rapidly to service the demand from the buoyant new housing market.  The combination of these good news stories means Bethell is anticipating turnover increasing from in excess of £30m in 2019 to nearer £50m in 2020.  To deliver this growth, Bethell is expanding the workforce and recruiting across all staff levels from skilled operatives and site-based staff through to senior management appointments based at their Kearsley head office. The recruitment campaign is targeting an additional 75 new staff being added to the workforce before the end of the year.

Chief Executive, Tim Kilroe, said “These are exciting times for Bethell. We have enjoyed a number of major contract wins in 2019 including our significant success with United Utilities. Our loyal workforce has been the reason we are so successful and 2020 now provides us with great opportunities but also challenges.  We won’t be able to achieve these targets without adding to our skill base and expanding our team”.
