On Saturday 23rd July 2022 Econ Group celebrated 40 years of trading! Econ Group was officially formed in 1982 by the current Managing Director David Cheriton. To mark this very special occasion all Econ employees were invited to attend an event at The Sail Loft, Greenwich. This event would reflect on the past successes of the business and look forward to the future chapters of the company. The business is now supported by David’s children Danny, Ginny along with his nephew Charles.

“ I would like to say a huge thank you to all our clients, past and present because without their continued loyalty over the years the business would not have naturally grown to the size it is today. I am speechless on how proud we all are as a family of the company and where it sits today in an ever competitive industry. We think that our people play a massive part in the success of the company and the event today reflects our thanks from all the current directors. To mark some of these wonderful contributions we have produced some awards for the event. The awards include 10 years’ service along with outstanding contribution and lifetime achievement, commented David Cheriton.”  

The event was a huge success with nearly all current employees attending. The awards were presented by company Directors Danny and Charles Cheriton along with a speech from the family on the business throughout time both past and present with excitement about future business opportunities. All employees that attended were issued a commemorative 40 year enabling excellence glass gift set. Econ Group are looking to hold future company events.

“ We can’t build strong relationships from behind the desk or from head office down the phone. These sort of events along with going out on projects spending time with the work force cements the foundations for employees feeling valued and respected in our business. All the current directors and senior management team share this fundamental belief. On behalf of the family, we are extremely pleased with the event and how the day has gone, commented company Director Danny Cheriton.”

Econ were very accommodating to meet our needs from the initial presentations prepared on strategy to mitigate risks and throughout execution of the works and keeping us fully informed and giving us the confidence we needed. The approach of Econ Site supervisors and visiting managers through to operatives on site was always of a high standard and good-natured and we are pleased to give credit where it is due. On site initiatives by the team from demonstrations /videos of emergency procedures when working in asbestos enclosures and working with consistent site uniforms contributed to the site achieving a Kier ‘Blue’ for best practice and working above standards. This was an excellent example of collaborative working and a joint approach to promptly overcome some of the challenges with asbestos and how best to deal with this along with working near challenging neighbours’ properties, the school and the church.”
