Galliford Try acquires Ham Baker asset maintenance operations

  • Galliford Try acquires Ham Baker asset maintenance operations

About the entity

Galliford Try
Galliford Try is a FTSE 250 business and one of the UK's leading housebuilding, regeneration and construction groups with revenues of £2.8billion.


Galliford Try has acquired Ham Baker’s asset inspection, maintenance and screens and distributor operations.

The acquired business produces a variety of engineered products for the water industry, which Galliford Try will use as a basis to develop a low carbon engineering offering, enabling products and raw materials to be as reused as possible, and reducing waste.

The acquisition brings complementary capabilities to Galliford Try’s growing Environment business, and will give it a further advantage in preparing for the water industry’s AMP8 cycle, in particular addressing storm overflow challenges. It also plays into Galliford Try’s role in decarbonising the industry for a greener, more sustainable future.

The deal reflects the key role the Environment business is playing in Galliford Try’s Sustainable Growth Strategy, which targets organic growth and acquisition opportunities in existing and adjacent sectors.

The acquisition brings with it a team of circa 40 who will continue to operate from the business’ current premises in Stoke.

Bill Hocking, Chief Executive of Galliford Try, said: “We are delighted with this acquisition which bolsters our position as a leading service provider to the water sector, with a growing capability in off-site build, capital maintenance and asset optimisation, following the acquisitions of nmcn water, Lintott and MCS Control Systems in the last 18 months.

“The evolution of our business means we are uniquely positioned to help our clients deliver the UK’s water needs through the improved resilience, efficiency and optimisation of their assets.”
