Building firm Esh Border Construction has moved into larger premises in West Lothian as it continues to expand since establishing a base in Scotland last year.

The company, the Scottish arm of Cumbria-based Esh Group, was launched in Livingston and has won a clutch of contracts worth around £10 million with local authorities and the NHS.

It employs more than 100 people in Scotland and has now relocated to larger premises on Fairways Business Park in the town to enable further growth in the future.

Its workload includes a £2m contract to extend three primary schools for West Lothian Council, a £1.6m contract with NHS Borders to build a health centre and a £645,000 contract with City of Edinburgh Council to renovate a school gym and assembly hall.

Simon Phillips, Esh’s managing director for Scotland, said opening a base north of the Border “has proved to be a fantastic springboard for growth”.
