Ashwood Scotland – OUT OF ADVERSITY WE THRIVE
After 3 months of government-imposed lockdown because of the coronavirus pandemic, Ashwood Scotland has returned to work stronger than ever. According to managing director Archie Meikle, he remains “positive and determined about the future.”
The firm’s live sites have reopened across Scotland and staff have been gradually returned from furlough. And, in an early boost to the company, 3 new contracts have been picked up all of which feature in this edition of The Ash.
“We began planning how best to come out of lockdown as soon as we went in,” explained Meikle.
“Our priorities were to ensure the wellbeing of all our people, to re-open our live sites and for all Covid-19 health and safety measures to be
properly communicated and implemented.”
The company is back at Edinburgh Zoo working on the Giraffe Enclosure – thought to be one of the largest in Europe – whilst the major
restoration project at West Register House in Edinburgh is progressing well towards completion at the year end. Meanwhile, investment in staff training has continued apace with new apprentice and graduate recruits planned this year.
“Building on our excellent 2019 figures we continue the hard work of steering Ashwood prudently and responsibly through. We are
confident we shall survive with everyone in time coming back full-time with no job losses at all,” added Meikle
