One of Lincolnshire’s largest engineering companies has reported that 2022 was its best-ever year.
GAME Engineering, which is based at Witham St Hughs, saw sales top £40 million in 2022.
The company was founded in 1986 and employs 70 people across two divisions: material handling and process design and custodial.
Of the record sales, £26 million was secured by the custodial division, with projects ranging from minor repairs to new build turnkey projects and major refurbishments. The custodial division was introduced in 1999 and works with His Majesty’s Prisons, police forces, secure hospitals and financial institutions.
“2022 was a challenging yet successful year for us, and I have to thank our team for all their hard work and commitment. Without them delivering to a consistently high standard, we could not have earned the trust of our clients,” says Stuart Hasler, custodial director.
“On the custodial side of the business, it was very pleasing to see us win work in all four UK nations, with projects ranging from just a few hundred pounds to more than £5 million and spanning everything from a simple repair all the way through to major new build and refurbishment projects.
“2023 has started in the same way as 2022, and we are very pleased to have won a variety of projects, including work that will be undertaken in 2024 and 2025.”
The success of the custodial division is mirrored by the performance of GAME Engineering’s material handling and process design team, which received its largest ever single order. The seven-figure project saw GAME designing and building a process plant for blending and packing grass seed.
“2022 was a fantastic year for us,” says Adam Conroy, project sale director. “As well as winning our largest ever order, at the end of the year, we were also awarded a contract to design and install all of the process equipment within a new factory producing animal feed. It’s a significant project for us and represents a great start to 2023.”
