APK was established in 2015 in Cumbria.
We originally started out as a Main Contractor on a housing development in Cumbria. As part of that project, APK self-delivered the Groundworks element of the project, which consisted of remediation, earthworks, infrastructure, substructure and external works. As a result, we built up a small group of skilled and directly employed workforce. From there, we went on to secure work from housebuilders and other Clients alike.
Many of those people, who originally started off with APK are still employed by the business today; which is testament to the loyalty our workforce has to the company. Those who remain have a strong sense of pride in having been involved in our roots and having witnessed the diversification of the business from that first, initial project.
From there, we went on to working for main contractors, undertaking groundworks packages across Cumbria and the North East. We also started to specialise and build our Civil Engineering capabilities through the employment of our own site engineering staff and technical operational management.
Through client demand, we have also developed our Demolition & Remediation business, which is becoming a market leader in its own right. As a result of growth in our primary businesses, we have been able to develop our Plant & Transport division through investment in modern and market leading equipment. We have also grown our Aggregates & Recycling business, which not only supports our own operations, but has a growing client base including other building contractors, builders merchants and garden centres.
As a business we work across a number of different sectors including: infrastructure, education, healthcare, industrial, distribution, retail and housebuilding.
APK now employs an excess of 50 staff and operates from our Head Office in Penrith, Cumbria. We operate throughout the UK but predominately focus on the North West and North East of England.
Throughout all of our divisions, we share one key goal; to work collaboratively with our clients, to care about our workforce & environment in which we work, to deliver on time, on budget and to excellent standards of quality, and together we can achieve.
We are confident that we will go on to become a market leader in the construction industry as a result of our hard work, skilled team and solid relationships. We are focused on exceeding customer expectations through our engaged team that can deliver, cares and together achieves.
