About Us - Our Company Profile

With over 40 years experience and supported by a dedicated team of qualified and experienced staff, Forkers provides a broad range of Civil and Ground Engineering services to both the public and private sectors.

We operate nationally from our head office in West Bromwich, West Midlands and our regional office in Grangemouth near Falkirk (Forkers Scotland Ltd). Both locations have extensive plant depot facilities and the proximity to major motorway networks, mainline stations and airports allows us to quickly access and support our operations in all parts of the UK.

An enviable reputation for problem solving, innovation, quality, client focus and attention to customer care together with our commitment to partnering and collaborative working ensures we can input fully into achieving successful completion of the most challenging projects.

The unique range of capabilities and expertise that we have in-house has been recognised by many clients and designers and we are regularly approached to provide technical advice and innovative ideas for future projects. We can also provide a full ‘design and construct’ service for any scheme if required.

Our specialist plant fleet includes over 50 drilling and mini-piling rigs which have established us as one of the UK’s largest contractors in the field of mine workings treatment, specialist geotechnical services and mini-piling solutions.

Many of our capabilities dovetail neatly into the renewable energy sector and we have secured a number of contracts for Windfarm Infrastructure, Ground Source Heating and Coal Bed Methane exploitation as well as for Battery Power Storage Facilities.
