Walker Engineering is reporting record annual revenues of £3.9m for 2021 – up from £2.2m in 2020.
Pre-tax profits at the Skelmersdale family-led firm also soared 81% to just over £403,000. Walker delivers mechanical and electrical fabrication, installation and maintenance across the UK.
Run by husband and wife team Andy (managing director) and Sarah Walker (director of operations), the business has seen staff numbers grow by 36% to 26. It has worked on a number of high-profile jobs throughout the last financial year.
These include the installation of a blend tank facility in Widnes, worth £600,000, and the structural steelwork supply for a property site in Formby, worth £240,000. It works across a range of sectors including chemical and food industries.
Walker has also been involved in four large structural steelwork projects in the North West, showcasing its expertise in fabrication and pipework.
Andy Walker said: “These figures would not have been possible without the dedication, skill and perseverance of our talented workforce. We pride ourselves on being a family-led business with real family values at its heart.
“Our team listens to our customers and goes the extra mile to simplify and manage processes for them. I think this is what sets us apart from our rivals and which has contributed to our growth.
“From what started out as a one-man band operation to the growing firm we see today, it is a very encouraging start to our 20th anniversary in 2023.”
