Ameon Utilities is headed by managing director Simon Gut who has set a turnover target for the firm of £18m within the next five years.
Gut is a 26-year veteran of United Utilities and oversees the firm’s work on many of the parent company’s contracts, together with its own portfolio of business, primarily in the North West region.
The utilities business is based in Ameon’s new corporate headquarters next to the M55 on Whitehills Business Park in Blackpool.
Contracts currently in the pipeline include: Leigh, Bolton, Rawtenstall and Blackburn Health Centres, Morecambe Football Club, Middleton Waste Transfer Facility, James Hall Distribution Centre, Preston; Furness College, Barrow and Rochdale Sixth Form College.
Ameon has also been chosen as the preferred utility provider for the installation of a 1megawatt electricity supply to Lancashire County Cricket Club’s Old Trafford ground, as part of the Club’s planned development of the stadium.
Simon Gut said: “We have an extremely experienced in house team providing the capability to design and install utilities networks. This not only provides great benefits for existing Ameon clients, but also to other developers and consulting engineers.
“Our size enables us to respond to client needs more rapidly than some of the larger utilities organizations, yet our range of services is equal to the larger companies in the field; therefore I’m very confident our business will continue to gather momentum, so that our projected targets will be met in the next five years.”
