Adept celebrated last night at The Tetley Bar & Kitchen, at a party to mark it’s 10th Year in Business. Despite the rain showers, party guests were able to enjoy a BBQ on the terrace whilst being entertained by fabulous singer & guitarist Jonny Walker @jonnysongs.
Managing Director, Erol Erturan expressed his thanks to guests including clients, contractors, architects and colleagues who Adept have worked with during this time for the support they have given the business since 2007. “I am thrilled to see so many of you here to help us celebrate our 10 year milestone” he said. “Without the support from many of you, we really would not be here today. Thank you – and here’s to the next 10 years!”
Investment in Technology & People
In an article published in The Yorkshire Evening Post recently, Erol stated, “It’s the investment in both the technology and our people that has helped to support our growth, and this is something we will continue to do over the next 10 years. We have many valued clients and have worked on some very exciting projects since we set up. Recent stand out schemes we have been involved with in Yorkshire include the work we did to help strengthen Scarborough’s iconic Peasholm Glen Bridge and the specialist structural designs we created for a new, state of the art, £9.5m spa expansion at Rudding Park in Harrogate. The breadth and variety of our client base continues to grow and I’m very excited about the projects we will be working on and the people we will be doing business with in the future.”
Building up the Business
Business partners, Erol Erturan, Matthew Ramsden and Richard Parker, who had worked together for a number of years at the Leeds office of a large multi-national consulting engineering practice, set up Adept in 2007.
Today Adept has 32 employees and a turnover of almost £2m. And a decade on from it’s formation, Adept is looking to continue to grow. “Based on a sustainable workload we would like to take on another 5 people,” Erol said. “If we can grow our business to 35 people by the end of this year I’d be happy. He added “Ultimately, in 5 years time we’d like to grow the business to 50 people.”
