Morgan Est sets up new venture; EXPANSION: Boss says launch will help win big infrastructure contracts.
WARWICKSHIRE infrastructure specialist Morgan Est has launched a new business which will see it merge its teams in the south of England.
The company, which employs 250 people at its base in Corporation Street, Rugby, has created Capital Projects - a projects and frameworks business focused on the rail and airport sectors.
The business will bring together its existing London Underground and Network Rail activities alongside the company's Docklands Light Railway and BAA teams.
The new business will be headed by managing director Mark Loader, who joins the company from Metronet, where he was vice president for the SSL programme.
Morgan Est managing director Mark Cutler said: "Morgan Est's rail and infrastructure teams have worked on a number of high profile schemes including the Channel Tunnel Rail Link, the Jubilee Line extension and Terminal 5.
"By introducing Capital Projects to sit alongside our other three business units we have significantly enhanced Morgan Est's capabilities in the rail and infrastructure sectors.
"We are also better placed to undertake major contracts for Transport for London, London Underground Limited, BAA, Network Rail and Crossrail."
Over the last few months Morgan Est has been expanding its rail business with a number of key appointments.
These include Geoff Baldwin who has joined as commercial director and Graeme Castle, who has been appointed as precontracts and engineering director.
Morgan Est's infrastructure business has been re-named Infrastructure Projects and will continue to be led by managing director Jag Paddam.
