The Sole Trader owner of Wilkins Safety Group has given two international PLCs a run for their money.

The company was shortlisted for this year’s Principal Designer of the Year and Health and Safety Consultancy of the Year at the Association for Project Safety , CDM Awards ceremony in Gibson Hall this month (October).

Not for the first time, Jon Wilkins’ Wilkins Safety Group was shortlisted for these coveted awards being pipped at the post by Arcadis and The Waterman Group with turnovers of £129m and £91m respectively.

“We may be small compared to these giants but I have always believed that we do as good a job, or even better, with our small but very qualified team; and we get some incredible jobs because of our reputation”  Said Jon Wilkins after the ceremony.

“Being short-listed is very important to us. Getting recognition for the highly specialised work we undertake in this area is a great endorsement of the work we do for our clients and we are proud to have been in the running for the last three years.”
