Its project haul from new and existing clients ranges from warehouses and retail to offices and a hotel.

Andy Bruce, GMI’s group managing director said: “2019 was a record-breaking year for GMI in all aspects but particularly in terms of new client wins, expansion into new sectors and the growth of our order book.

“To open things up in the same fashion so early into 2020 is a very encouraging sign, and a strong indication of further growth to come this year.”

“Our expanding divisional operations in the Midlands, North West, Yorkshire and the North East continue to reap strong rewards and fully justify our commitments to grow our capacity in those areas in the face of strong demand,” said Bruce.
