Constructing Local. Procuring Local

Esh Construction demonstrates its commitment to prompt payment and local procurement.

Esh Construction is a proud signatory of the Prompt Payment code, a UK Government initiative which encourages businesses to pay suppliers within a maximum of 60 days while working towards adopting 30-day payment terms as the norm.

A recent report published by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy showed Esh Construction to be of the fastest paying contractors in England (5th), paying 28% of invoices within 30 days and 63% within 60 days.

The company which operates out of regional headquarters in Durham and Leeds has a diverse local supply chain, many of which are SMEs and is actively seeking new partners to support business growth.

We recognise the importance of supporting our local economy and we are committed to making a positive impact in the areas in which we operate. For all major projects, we endeavour to source 70% of our supply chain locally - on a recent £10m commercial build project in Middlesbrough for The Police and Crime Commissioner for Cleveland, we procured 87% within 25 miles of the project."
