McPhillips (Wellington) Limited was founded by Jim McPhillips in 1963 and became a limited company in December 1964. The company has enjoyed sustained growth over the years and currently employs over 280 people providing award winning civil engineering and building solutions throughout the Midlands, North West England and Wales.
The company has been based in Shropshire since its inception and moved to its current purpose built headquarters at Hortonwood, Telford in 1989. This modern bespoke facility incorporates IT integrated offices, plant maintenance workshop and a purpose-built training centre.
The company is committed to local employment, with 92% of personnel living within 20 miles of its Telford offices.
McPhillips has always carried out operations utilising a directly employed workforce of highly skilled and experienced construction personnel. These resources provide enhanced levels of project staffing continuity which has a positive impact on outcomes and customer satisfaction. We also feel that this strategy provides reductions in risk, as well as advantages in the control of quality, resourcing, co-ordination and health & safety. It means McPhillips’ personnel genuinely care about client satisfaction, are more accountable, and ultimately provide a better service.
We invest extensively in our resources and individuals are encouraged and empowered to achieve and develop, McPhillips is committed to professional development and operates a bespoke training centre and a CITB approved training plan which provides in excess of 1000 training days annually. The rewards of this are a motivated and highly skilled workforce with retention levels far in excess of construction industry averages.
A modern fleet of plant and equipment ensures that the correct resource is available when required. Our plant department provides approved servicing, repair and calibration to maintain these assets and a rolling replacement programme guarantees efficient and reliable machinery.
