Founded in 1921, West Yorkshire-based NG Bailey provides mechanical and electrical engineering services, as well as facilities management. Recent projects include the design and build of Manchester University’s engineering campus, and the rail control centre at London Bridge. Chief executive David Hurcomb, 54, has overseen strong growth in its engineering and services divisions and in April, it acquired — for an undisclosed sum — Freedom Group, which, with an annual turnover of £120m, maintains the UK’s electrical network infrastructure.
