From 1 October 2015, Aarsleff Piling, one of the UK and Europe’s leading foundation contractors, will trade as Aarsleff Ground Engineering.

The move, which applies to Aarsleff UK and Europe is designed to better reflect the Company’s activities, as well as provide a strong international identity and an accurate description of the focus of the business, which underpins its strategy for future sustainable growth.

Aarsleff across Europe has long offered Geotechnical services in addition to piling; the new trading name – Aarsleff Ground Engineering – recognises this but also promotes the UK’s plans expansion plans to mirror this as it expands into new and diverse sectors. It is also planned that over time, the contracting units in all countries will carry the name Aarsleff, so that the Group’s execution of pile driving, sheet piling, drilling work etc., will be recognised under the Aarsleff brand.

Aarsleff’s UK pile manufacturing facility will continue to carry the name Centrum and the sales and supply of piles internally and externally will be transacted under the Centrum brand.

Speaking about the name change Chris Primett, MD of Aarsleff in the UK said: “Aarsleff has long been delivering ground engineering solutions to the UK foundations sector and the trading name change will now better reflect this and the services we provide. As the Company grows and enters new markets it is important that our customers understand the products and services we are able to provide and that these are backed with an enormous Europe-wide knowledge base and resource. Over the years, in addition to having built a strong reputation for delivering a quality service, on-time and to-budget, we have become known for the engineered solutions we also provide – Aarsleff Ground Engineering defines this.”
