THE WALTERS WAY
When you think of the term civil engineering in its broadest sense, what do you see? Diggers? Trucks? Lorries full of muck and dirt? Roadworks? You wouldn’t be wrong there, but through working with closely with Walters, we learnt that it really is so much more than that; specifically invention, innovation, bravery and respect.
Walters was established in 1982 by its current chairman, Mr Gweirydd Walters; a resourceful and enterprising man that started his career as an apprentice fitter in Trecatti coal mine and through shrewd investment, was able to build Walters from the ground up by purchasing one piece of Plant machinery (a Caterpillar 988 Loading Shovel), hiring this out and then through gradual growth and investment, was able to build Walters into the £250 million pound operation that it is today.
Now boasting over 400 members of staff. Walters had weathered any financial storm it had been faced with and had retained the agility in order to make quick decisions, try new things and ultimately succeed.
