Success Story

A trio of senior promotions have been made at Story Contracting after what it describes as an “exceptional start” to 2019.

The infrastructure company grew by 36 per cent in 2018 – welcoming its 700th employee in the process – and has continued that success into the new year by securing further major contracts. 

Recent wins include:

  • Story Scotland landing a five-year Network Rail framework to deliver up to £135 million of renewal and enhancement projects;
  • Another five-year Network Rail framework contract, this time in England worth up to £50 million for geotechnical work on the London North Eastern route;
  • Three framework agreements worth up to £50 million with Transport for Greater Manchester for the renewals of structures, property and track on Metrolink. 

As a result, Ian Purdham (L) and John MacArthur (R) will become, respectively, managing directors of Story Contracting’s rail and Story Scotland divisions. 

In addition, Frank McFadden (Centre) will take on the role of rail technical assurance director. 

Story’s rail division is also expanding its team, particularly in the Midlands, where it has opened a new office in Birmingham. 

Jason Butterworth, Story Contracting CEO, said: “I am delighted with the progress that our company is making – we are enjoying a successful 2018/19 and we are in a strong position, partly as a result of recent long-term major framework wins in both England and Scotland.”
