A CONSTRUCTION firm from Powys has topped this year’s Wales Fast Growth 50 list of the fastest growing businesses in Wales.

Based in Newtown, EvaBuild is an award-winning construction company covering England and Wales and providing quality civil engineering, construction and groundworks.

The company, founded in 2011, has quickly grown in size resulting in an impressive 733 per cent growth over two years thanks to customer recommendations and an “unwavering determination to raise industry standards”.

An Eva Build spokesman said: “Over the company’s short history, it has demonstrated a strong track record of completing significant contracts on budget, on time and to the highest standards.

"It also provides professional site surveys, ground investigations and a project management service.

“In setting up the business, the company's founders were motivated by the desire to create something that was successful and disrupting the status quo that exists within the

construction industry.

“Financial planning was a major challenge in the early years as the construction industry is notoriously unpredictable and slow at paying sub-contractors.

“High growth has only been achievable through being able to finance the work as the business has grown from nothing without any external borrowing.

“The company attributes its success to the appointment of key staff and being able to attract high calibre young people to the firm.

“With high calibre staff critical to the business now and in the future, the company recognised the need to invest in existing staff development to nurture the talent that lies within, and to attract new staff who will buy into the company’s vision.”
