FK Strengthens Team with Appointment of New Director

Commenting on joining FK Group, Gavin Harriman said: “I have been in the roofing sector for a significant time and have watched FK Group grow as a business to where they are today; offering a full service building envelope solution with clients nationwide and now internationally.

“I was attracted by the company’s ambition and growth targets. It is a real challenge to help grow the maintenance and small projects divisions within the overall FK Group. As the group continues to grow to the next level, these divisions remain key in the delivery of the complete building envelope solution.”

FK Group’s annual turnover reached over £46 million for the year to 31 March 2015. For 2016 turnover is on course to for the £70 million mark, an impressive increase of 51%. 2015 saw the company establish two further offices in the UK: Birmingham and London, plus an overseas office in Dubai.
