The Clancy Group Plc through its operating companies has established itself as one of the successful family owned construction businesses in the UK. The business through robust management; innovative solutions, processes and equipment; work-force expertise and value for money continues to grow from strength to strength.
Who We Are
The Clancy Group Plc is a privately owned family business – through fellow operating company Clancy Docwra Limited and subsidiary and associate companies Clancy Plant Limited and Clancy Developments Limited – is well established as one of the UK’s leading contractors within the construction industry.
The company was founded in 1958 by Michael Clancy as M.J. Clancy & Sons Limited. It quickly developed a reputation as a well run business that delivered value for money solutions and quality workmanship. The company was built on good traditional family and business values, and these values of Integrity, Stability, Standards and Client Satisfaction are still central to our business today.
Over recent years the identification and adoption of innovative solutions has become a major driver within our business. In 2009 we created the new role of Innovations Manager within the business. The appointment was filled by a senior operational manager from within the business, ensuring that, whist this is a full-time dedicated role, it is informed by a background of hands-on operational management.
To ensure that we are capitalising on innovation and best practice across all of our contracts, and are therefore delivering best value to all of our clients, we have formed a cross-company innovation forum. Comprising delegates from across the company, this forum is sharing best practice through meetings, workshops and video conferencing.
In 2009 we ran our first in-house innovation day, to which we invited clients and suppliers, and at which we demonstrated a number of in-house and supply-chain innovations. This June (2011) we held a second event, which again has received praise from clients and suppliers. We are now seen as a major driver of innovation and a ready adopter of innovative initiatives within the industry.
Recent innovative practices that have been adopted across the business have encompassed construction techniques, quality assurance, health and safety, and works management. In addition to innovations that have already been implemented, we are continuing to work together with our supply chain and other stakeholders in identifying new opportunities, and therefore have a number of initiatives in trials.
