Threadgold launched Caddick’s North West arm in 2014 and has grown it to become one of the leading contractors in the region worth £250 million, with a 130-strong team operating out of offices in Warrington and Kendal. 

Its blue-chip clients include Bruntwood, St. Modwen, Chancerygate, Network Space, Red Sun, Quorum, United Healthcare Development Limited, and Guinness Trust. 

Threadgold began his career as a trainee site engineer at 16 before working for a variety of national and regional contracting organisations, progressing from engineer to project manager to contracts manager to construction director.  

He said: “I am very proud of everything we’ve achieved since Caddick Construction was launched, we’ve delivered some fantastic projects in a variety of sectors including the likes of Base Building at Manchester Science Park, South Lakes Porsche Centre at Carnforth and Arden Square at Crewe. We have also developed a very strong presence in the residential market. 

“By far the highlight for me though is the team of talented people I leave behind at Caddick, many of whom I have worked with throughout their entire careers. Our business has rightly earned a strong reputation as a trusted construction partner, and the strength of our client relationships is due to our consistent delivery of high-quality projects. None of that would be possible without the skills, experience, and commitment of our team. When I retired, I wanted to leave behind a great business as a leading regional contractor in a strong financial position for future success and I believe I have achieved this.” 

Threadgold’s retirement follows Caddick’s most successful year to date in the North West region, with a turnover of more than £180 million and a strong secured forward order book.  

Paul Dodsworth, Caddick Construction group MD, said: “What Ian has achieved for Caddick Construction in the North West over the last nine years is nothing short of outstanding. Caddick’s reputation in the North West has been hard-earned by Ian and his team through dedication and a commitment to delivering impeccable standards. We wish Ian well in his retirement and promise to build on his legacy.”
