Expansion plans revealed

A CONSTRUCTION group, which was involved in a major project in Hartlepool, has announced a refinancing deal so that it can expand.

The Miller Group has completed a £160m investment of capital as it announced plans for a strategy to develop the business.

Group chief executive Keith Miller said: “This new investment strengthens the Miller Group substantially and will allow us to deliver further growth from a strong base at a time when our markets are showing good signs of recovery”.

The company has been involved in work in Hartlepool. In 2008, it started work on a £20m project to expand Hartlepool Sixth Form College’s Brinkburn site.
