Named after the Roman word for Lincoln and founded by engineer John Chambers in 1956, this construction firm also has offices in Peterborough and York, and is almost 50% owned by its employees. It works on new-build, refurbishment and maintenance projects spanning the East Midlands, East Anglia and Yorkshire and is chaired by the founder’s youngest son, David, 61. Profits in 2017 rose 60% to £7m, largely the result of full occupancy at its Lindum Business Park in Lincoln and a buoyant market for Lindum Homes.
