Our Business

Purdy Contracts Ltd (Purdy)

Purdy is an award-winning Contractor based in London, established in 1984 and part of the Bilby plc group of companies. Its three divisions undertake Electrical, Mechanical and Property Services work for both the domestic and commercial sectors. Purdy’s services include internal and external refurbishment and repairs for both planned and reactive works programmes.

The business was acquired by Bilby in 2015 for over £8 million. The rationale of the acquisition was to enable the cross-selling of its heating and building services to its existing customers whilst enabling the enlarged group to qualify for and tender for larger contracts that required minimum revenue qualification. The acquisition also gave added important presence in our core geographic market as well as adding electrical services to the Groups service offering.

Purdy works closely with many local authorities, registered providers and large commercial organisations and currently maintains in excess of 150,000 properties. Its absolute commitment to excellent customer service means Purdy maintains a 24/7/365 service within London and the South-east, including Essex, Hertfordshire and Suffolk./p>
