Laidlaw – a leading name in architectural ironmongery, balustrades and security systems – is looking forward to continued growth in 2017 after its first 12 months as a successful independent business.
The company, which has eight regional centres across the UK, was relaunched in January 2016 and Managing Director Peter O’Brien says the first year of business has already seen it chalk up considerable successes.
“Laidlaw is a name that goes back more than 140 years and it has a well-earned reputation for providing a first-class service and delivering on projects,” he said.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to continue that and have been heartened by the response from existing clients and from new customers who are impressed by what we offer and are therefore keen to specify our products.”
Laidlaw has already demonstrated its commitment to growth by launching its own graduate scheme and has taken on three graduates, all of whom are undertaking training and are studying for professional qualifications.
“We want to safeguard the future of Laidlaw and by investing in young talent we are well placed to meet the demands of the market. We laid strong foundations in 2016 when we relaunched and are now in an excellent position to build on them in 2017. We are looking forward to delivering our exciting plans and projects.”
