CARILLION, the support services giant which took over Warm Front business Eaga last year, says it is on course for a “robust” full year performance.
Despite challenging market conditions, the company said profits would increase, although revenue would be down on last year.
Carillion said its support services order book and probable order was strong, including an energy services contract for Birmingham City Council, worth up to £1.5bn over eight years.
The group paid £300m for Eaga, which is now known as the energy services arm of the business. This part of Carillion employs around 2,000 people across the UK and Ireland, with more than 500 of those employees based in Newcastle.
Carillion, which took over Newcastle-based plc Eaga for £300m last year, will be fitting energy-efficiency measures, such as insulation and new boilers, under the Government’s Green Deal.
