1000 Companies to Inspire Britain 2017
Just last week we received an unanticipated letter to the Dragon Head Office from the London Stock Exchange Group, advising that Dragon Infrastructure Solutions Limited have been included in their annual ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain 2017’ report.
As you can imagine we were delighted, if a little shocked, by this unexpected news. It has always been a part of Dragon’s culture to not only develop the company by adapting to changes in the market but also to create an environment where our employees have an opportunity for personal and professional growth and our customers see the whole company and everyone within it as solutions providers not just a contractor. This recognition has confirmed that the whole team’s hard work has paid off.
Over the last few weeks and months the directors and senior management team have been compiling company plans for the next year to five years, ensuring that Dragon can have continued steady growth and remain a market leader within the construction industry. The recent decision to join forces with the Energy Assets Group is a major step forward in this regard.
Our Managing Director, Andrew Garcia, had this to say about the news; “This news couldn’t have come at a better time, with so many long-term plans coming to fruition, and it really does mean all the hard work by the Dragon team has been worthwhile and has created an exciting platform to encourage and inspire future success.
The next few years look to be an exciting time for the team at Dragon with major changes coming within the company, construction industry and the UK economy. We would certainly look to maintain our place in the 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain 2018 and beyond. We will strive to continue to meet our client’s expectations delivering honest, added value engineering solutions whilst maintaining our brands integrity.”
Dragon are one of the UK’s leading independent connections providers. We work with all leading construction companies, connecting construction projects to the national grid. We are one of only a handful of companies Lloyd’s accredited to handle both 132kV of electricity and 2bar pressure gas.
Xavier Rolet, Chief Executive, London Stock Exchange Group, said: “When we launched the inaugural edition of 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain in 2013, we said our aim was to bring to life what we instinctively knew to be true: that these companies are the lifeblood of the UK economy.
Four years on, this report not only shows that continues to be the case, but also that – in these times of global macro-economic and geo-political uncertainty – these companies are our greatest prospect for building a resilient and productive economy that, in the words of the Prime Minister, ‘works for everyone’.”
