Edison Group undertakes major expansion

Scottish-owned construction, property and investment business, Edison Group, which has invested just short of £2 million to secure and equip new premises in South Lanarkshire, is rebranding its largest subsidiary, GDC Design, as Principal Building Ltd.

The new state-of-the-art facility in Langlands Business Park, East Kilbride, features 16,500 sq ft of modern workshops with 3,500 sq ft of modern refurbished offices, and currently accommodates around 80 employees. The site says Edison will position Principal Building for substantial, sustainable growth in 2024.

In addition to Principal Building, the new facilities will host Edison Group companies, Eden Homes (Scotland) Ltd, Crown Architectural Ltd and TedCo Contracts Ltd. All are scheduled to have relocated to East Kilbride by April 2024.

Edison Capital and Edison Group Chief Executive Calum Melville said: “The investment from Edison Capital into new facilities, eleven machines and a spray booth as well as the appointment of a top, four-strong senior management team with over one hundred 100 years of experience, uniquely positions Principal Building as a main contractor offering new build, major refits, shopfitting, minor works, interior fit out and manufactured joinery using state-of the-art Felder machinery.

“We will continue to foster an inclusive environment for all team members, leveraging off a rounded central function which will expand each company’s capability, while reducing their individual overheads.”

He continued: “We have concentrated bringing in top talent which, in turn, has driven group sales to just north of £30 million on a rolling 12 months basis.

“Edison Group continues to be a focus for our time, effort and capital investment as we continue to develop our construction business in the UK.”
