Elliott Thomas Group is rebranding its construction arm as Prime

The firm said the change of name from Elliott Thomas Construction reflected the construction division’s “significant growth into a multimillion pound business” and “highlights our belief that our construction business has big potential despite the difficult market conditions”.

Elliott Thomas Group chief executive John Self said: “Our construction work has been steadily growing over the past few years and, with our expertise in logistics, we’ve managed to carve out a niche for ourselves in successful problem-solving.

“We know that delivering top quality results, on time and to the agreed budget is what our clients need and we’re proud of our reputation for never letting them down.”

He said Prime would be targeting contracts up to £15m in value, as well as continuing to work for larger contractors on bigger projects.
