Keltbray buys assets of Bathgate’s Dunne Group

Keltbray Group said it has acquired some of the assets Bathgate-based construction firm Dunne Group — which went into administration in July — from the administrators.

The purchase includes the former yard and head office of Dunne between Blackburn and Bathgate as well as plant used for the construction of reinforced concrete structures.

“Keltbray sees this as an opportunity to broaden its capability and services portfolio, widen its geographical reach and to respond to market demands,” said the company in a statement.

Dunne Group went into administration last month with the loss of more than 500 jobs throughout the UK and Ireland.

Dunne has been involved in projects in London including One Blackfriars and 100 Bishopsgate and also the new South Glasgow Hospital and Glasgow’s Riverside Museum, according the firm’s website.

Keltbray employs more than 1,000 and has been involved in a range of high profile construction projects including The Shard, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park Stadium, St Pancras International, Crossrail, Earls Court and Battersea Power Station.
