Recruitment and engineering business Morson launched their new HQ office building and is aiming for £500m turnover in 2011. The Salford-based business marked the official opening of their new office building, Adamson House, with Sir Alex Ferguson, the Manchester United manager and Harold Riley, the Salford artist.
Morson moved into new premises in January 2010, but the official opening was an opportunity for Mason to thank staff and the individuals that assisted in delivering the new build: “Dominic Horridge did a fantastic job in delivering the £9M base build and our fit-out on time and to budget, enabling Morson to occupy the premises as soon as possible. Our staff are all delighted with the quality of their new working environment”.Chief Executive Ged Mason said: “My father founded the business in Eccles, Salford in 1969 and firmly established our roots in Salford. Under his guidance we have grown into a professional and market leading organisation employing over 500 people, engaging over 10,000 contractors worldwide.”
Sir Alex Ferguson said: “One thing that has impressed me with Morson is that they take on apprentices, especially in engineering, it’s such an important aspect of modern Britain. This move today could just be the start. Morson has that energy, it really does. You never know where you could go from here.”
