Among the fresh wins, the Barnsley-headquartered contractor said it had secured the largest single contract in its trading history, to achieve a “record” order book. 

Though little detail was revealed, chief executive officer (CEO) Mark Smith said the contracts gave Billington good visibility in 2024 and into 2025 and put the company materially ahead of the previous record in Q1of last year.  

The wins are known to span a variety of sectors including power generation, manufacturing and retail logistics and will be delivered nationally over the next 24 months, though Smith added further details would be released with the group’s financial results in April.  

“The award of these significant contracts is great news for Billington,” said Smith.  

“They are a testament to our group offering in a challenging trading environment and demonstrates that Billington is a steelwork contractor of choice.  

“The group currently has a record order book and these contracts provide further confidence that Billington will continue to perform well in 2024 and into 2025, further underpinning current market expectations.  

“I look forward to providing further updates at the time of the release of the group’s results for the year ended 31 December 2023 in April 2024.”
