New premises for Ham Baker Engineering

Galliford Try, one of the UK’s leading construction groups, has announced that its Ham Baker business has moved to new premises, complete with a refreshed look to mark the start of a new era.

The business has moved to a new factory in; Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, a short distance from the previous location in Stoke. The new site covers 1000m² and it will house the full operations of the business which includes asset inspection, maintenance, refurbishment, and installation expertise.

The refresh extends to a new name, Ham Baker Engineering, and a new logo. The rebranded business will operate alongside Galliford Try’s Lintott brand as part of the recently-created Water Technologies business stream, with a focus on advanced equipment manufacturing that yields higher profit margins and incorporates cutting-edge technology.

Ham Baker was acquired by Galliford Try last year and brought complementary capabilities to the Group’s growing Environment business, giving it a further advantage in preparing for the water industry’s AMP8 cycle, in particular addressing storm overflow challenges. The deal also played into Galliford Try’s role in decarbonising the industry for a greener, more sustainable future by using Ham Baker Engineering to develop a low carbon engineering offering, enabling products and raw materials to be as reused as possible, and reducing waste.

Steve Slessor, Managing Director for Galliford Try’s Environment business, said:

“Since announcing our Sustainable Growth strategy in late 2021, we have cemented our place as the leading provider to the water sector, complemented by our growing capability in off-site build, capital maintenance and asset optimisation, following the acquisitions of nmcn water, Lintott, MCS Control Systems and Ham Baker.

“The move to new, modern premises, marks an important step in our journey to integrating Ham Baker Engineering and allowing our enlarged business to benefit from the best of both businesses, positioning us uniquely to support our clients deliver the UK’s water needs through the improved resilience, efficiency and optimisation of their assets.”
