Aarsleff Ground Engineering is proud to announce it is a partner of the Northern Powerhouse, the Government’s vision for a super-connected, globally-competitive northern economy with a flourishing private sector, a highly-skilled population, and a world-renowned civic and business leadership.
Building on the strong existing economy, the Northern Powerhouse aims to help businesses from around the UK to seize new opportunities presented with the country leaving the EU. Within the strategy, the Government outlines how it will work with local stakeholders to address key barriers to productivity across 11 Northern Local Enterprises in the North East & West of England and North Wales.
The partner programme is a key element of the Northern Powerhouse and will enable the government to have a network of businesses and organisations who believe strongly in the economic potential of the North. Over 300 companies and businesses have already become partners of the scheme from a wide range of sectors including construction, logistics, retail.
Speaking on the announcement, Aarsleff’s Managing Director Kevin Hague said,
“We have seen great value in working with our client base in the North, to the point where we experience our highest activity levels there for our offerings. Over the past 5 years we have continued to grow our presence in northern cities, working on larger and more complex projects across Leeds, Durham, York, and Newcastle. Today, we are currently working on the Sunderland Strategic Transport Corridor scheme, one of our largest geotechnical projects to date. We support the Governments strategy and are proud to play a part in boosting the economy and the future of the North of England.”
