    Funnily enough I worked on a carillion contract for Pughs for 18 month and they were actually alright with us. A bit strict but they paid every month on time every time.

    Aye it was a departure lounge since summer 2015. Some really good managers left. Used to be Muck Shifting , demolition , plant hire and the quarry. Very successful in those markets. Tried to branch into ground works and civils and took took much on too soon without the correct tools / experience/ personell

    Esh have lost out on loads of work to Wearmouth. They also used Groundwork Services last year who then proceeded to screw them over by undercutting them and taking some of their ground workers.

    We picked a few jobs up this week for the likes of GA Smith who were left in the shit by Pughs.

    I used to work for one of those. A few years ago head office used to send each division a pot of money on a Thursday morning and they had the day to balance out who would get paid and who would get fobbed off. Each division's pot was never more than 80% of what they owed that week. Disgraceful tbh.

    That was the only part of the business making money, not sure how true it is but they reckon there's only 2 years of stone left in the quarry.

    Aye i dealt with Steve, top fella, as were a few there going back a few years.
    Aye they tried to turn into Esh/Lumsden and Carroll in my opinion.

    Not sure of volumes left but they can always seek to extend. It's being back filled as a landfill too which was profitable. Loads of life left in that

    We tip in there fairly often and I have a fair bit to do with one of the lads who works on the weighbridge.

    I know the lad who sorts all their labs and testing stuff. He reckons Biffa/O'Briens and Tarmac both interested. Hope they get sorted
