Flegg Projects is very proud of its heritage and history. The business of moving machinery has come along way since its early foundations in the mid-1970’s. We are so proud that one of our early recruits is still with us today – now that is some employee retention.
We look forward to the future with great enthusiasm as we aim to grow our business whilst maintaining exceptional customer service and delivery.
So to the future: new teams, additional lifting equipment and support vehicles, all ready and waiting to serve clients in the North of the UK as well as to maintain the business in the south.
