PROjEN Celebrates 30 years of Successful Business
PROjEN, the award winning Project Management Company celebrated 30 years of project management expertise at the The Macdonald Portal Hotel in Cheshire. The festivities which took place on Friday 6th June 2008 were attended by personnel from across the UK and included a three course meal, champagne, casino night and disco.
PROjEN which was born out of the employment agency Morgan Design Associates in 1978 owes its success largely to the knowledge, skills, expertise and above all the commitment of all its employees. Over the years, PROjEN has grown from strength to strength in terms of its turnover (over £20 million), employee numbers (over 100) and by its blue chip customer base which includes GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi Aventis, Heinz, Coca Cola Greenergy and British Sugar. PROjEN have also won many prestigious awards, which include the European Construction Institute’s “Contractor of the Year 2003”, “Project of the Year 2004, 2006 and 2008”, PROjEN’s Carbon Trust Accreditation awarded in 2007 and a ‘Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents’ (RoSPA) Gold Medal in 2008, following seven consecutive Gold Awards.
PROjEN stand out from the competition in a number of ways. Being privately owned they have full control of the size of business they want to be, the type of projects they undertake and the industries they work in. The Company’s key driver is to be seen as a valuable extension to their clients business by showing clear improvements in their performance through PROjEN’s engineering support. The visibility and involvement of owner/ managers promotes a “can-do” attitude and the desire to see the job through/ not walk away when problems occur makes PROjEN a first choice for many clients. PROjEN’s clear set of values and culture is shared and owned by all within the company which ensures a consistency of delivery, low politic/ no blame environment and a greater team spirit.
John Taylor, PROjEN’s MD said “Reaching 30 years in business is a noteworthy achievement for any organisation and is one we are proud to celebrate. Over the years we have seen a number of competitors come and go and our success is down to our personnel and the working relationship with our clients. We focus on recruiting employees with the right attitude and by limiting our client numbers we ensure we have a better understanding of what the client is trying to achieve through its business investments. Our ability to bring experience from a range of industries and our skills in embracing new technology and blending it with tried and tested solutions has proven to be a successful formula. Our 30th Birthday Celebration held on Friday was just one of the ways that we wanted to mark this occasion and ensured that we said a big thank you to the PROjEN Team. I look forward to continued success and celebrating our next major birthday milestone!”
