Get to Know Us
Borras Construction is a privately owned company chaired by its founding owner with a turnover of £51 million in 2017. Our attitude to staying financially strong is underpinned by our policy of using our sustained growth to reinvest in the company’s future. It means we can meet the challenges ahead with absolute financial confidence even when the wider economic landscape is so unpredictable.
There are a number of reasons for Borras’s underlying financial stability:
- Historic high cash balances
- No operational overdrafts or borrowings
- Exceptionally low net gearing
- High balance sheet worth
- Own the freehold of our headquarters
- Able to fund projects both in-house and with strategic finance partners
- In the top 1% of the most financially strong UK construction companies and reliable supply-chain payers as reported in our latest Dun & Bradstreet report
Keeping consistently high cash balances supports our ‘Pay on Time’ policy, one of the cornerstones of our success in building long-lasting and trusting relationships with our suppliers and sub-contractors.
Without exception you have been helpful and attentive throughout the contract period and I have been particularly impressed by the way in which any day to day issues were immediately attended to and resolved.
