Get to Know Us
Borras Construction is a privately owned company chaired by its founding owner with a projected turnover of over £55 million in 2019.
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.
In response to the Coronavirus outbreak, we are keen to reassure our employees, clients, project stakeholders and supply-chain partners, that we are taking the necessary precautions in relation to a healthy working environment across our sites and operations.
