Triton Construction has announced a restructure and new appointments to its senior team in the North West.

Steve Bolton is stepping down from the business for retirement after dedicating the last five years to successfully building the business and profile of Triton across the North West. Chris Quinn, who has already served Triton for over two years has been promoted to take over as Regional Director.

Mark Burns has also joined Triton as Operations Director. He brings more than 40 years’ industry experience in the North West from the ground up as a tradesman to managing director at Cruden Property Services, with particular experience within construction frameworks including Manchester City Council as a client for over 15 years.

Mark will work alongside Chris and Business development director, Phil Dyer as a highly experienced senior team to develop the business across its key sectors including education, commercial, industrial, retail/leisure and healthcare.

Triton, which directly employs 80 people across the North West and its HQ in Yorkshire, has enjoyed stead growth in recent years, reporting a turnover of £58 million in 2019. The recent pandemic, which has considerably impacted the construction sector, will inevitably result in some short-term adjustments for the business as it prepares to re-align to the ‘new normal’.

Paul Clarkson, Managing Director at Triton Construction, said, “I would like to thank Steve for his dedication and commitment to driving our business in the North West and wish him all the best for his well-earned retirement. His departure coincides with the necessity to evolve with market conditions and I am pleased to bring Mark on board with his extensive expertise that compliments the skills of both Chris and Phil. There is great potential to develop the business further in the North West with headroom for profitable growth in the future.”

Chris Quinn said, “I am delighted to take to the helm at Triton in the North West where we have carved a great reputation as a partner in all aspects of construction and fit out, achieving a turnover of near £30m within the North West in 2019.

“With high profile projects including the refurbishment of the iconic Royal Liver Building in Liverpool and the radical new Big Yellow self-storage building in Manchester, we have set the benchmark for what is to come, and look forward to building the business across the region in the future as a formidable team.”

Other project highlights for Triton in the last 12 months include the ongoing Premier Inn hotels extensions framework, a new testing facility for British institution and gear engine pioneer David Brown Santasalo, an extension for Bolton Muslim Girls School and a new warehouse facility for Tech Folien in Liverpool.
