Simon Pettit, the group’s co-owner commented: “This once again shows the determination and commitment that the Pettit group of companies are showing, with a keen focus on Health & Safety, Quality and Business ethics in it’s growth.

“Our priced work Contracting division business plan, is focussing on growth in Civil Engineering and Utilities Contracting in the Kent, Sussex, Essex and London regions over the next 5 years. 

“The previous experience of our directors and senior management, means we are looking to hone in on our skills sets in Kent infrastructure projects.  Although only in the infancy of our contracting business, the in-house Civil Engineering capabilities that Denis, Keith, myself and our project teams have is second to none for a company our size. With this accreditation under our belt, the ongoing ISO suites we have invested in and the commercial team that we are about to on-board, we become a very attractive subcontracting option for Main Contractors on Kent and South East Projects”. 

Well done to the whole team!
