Within Moortown Group, specialist services are provided by Moortown Plant, Excel Surfacing & Leeds Acro, all of which are separate operating companies providing essential services to our construction projects as well as to external customers within the general market.

Moortown operate with a permanent workforce of over 650 multi-skilled operatives with industry recognised qualifications and training, this resource can be supplemented further by a well-established supply chain of specialist sub-contractors with whom we have many years trading experience; this coupled with our Highly Skilled Operational Management Team provides the resources and appropriate skill-setts required to undertake a varied and impressive portfolio of projects with contract values ranging from £150k up to the more Technically Challenging and high profile projects with contract values in excess of £30m.

Our ‘Can-do’ approach and project management skills has underpinned our reputation of being a ‘customer-focused’ business who ensure we deliver what our clients want. Our collaborative culture ensures that we always aspire to work with our clients and understand their requirements and to provide cost effective solutions that align with the Operational, Programme and Commercial demands and expectations. This approach is clearly appreciated by our clients as a high proportion of our work load is based on repeat business and recommendations; notwithstanding this, Moortown is always keen to work with new clients who share our own values.

As part of our Group structure, Moortown Plant owns, operates and provides the construction business with a fleet of modern, state-of-the-art, well maintained plant and vehicles ranging from, but not restricted to, excavators, mobile cranes, tower cranes, dump trucks, dozers, dumpers and small tools, our latest acquisition being a Sennebogen 673R Telescopic Crawler Crane, 42m Putzmeister Concrete Pump, 90t Kobelco Crawler Crane, 2 Tracked vac ex units and a 32t Vacuum Excavator.

In order to ensure our operational teams are fully trained and compliant with the latest legislative requirements, Moortown Safety Training Ltd was established in 2007. The business is an approved CITB Site Safety Plus Centre and provides management and operative training to our teams as well as to industry ensuring competence across the relevant occupations.

To ensure that our business remains at the forefront of training investment into our trainers is vital which in return ensures the workforce are kept up to date with technological advances, best practice and in tune with the safety equipment available in the UK market.

2023 saw further investment within the Plant fleet with the addition of a Vacuum Excavator Truck which will support the two tracked vacuum excavators already being used across the business to manage the risks associated with buried services.

We promote a professional, user-friendly, can-do approach to all our work.
