Esh Group - a County Durham based contractor has boosted the North East's economy by more than £350m thanks to its 'Buy Local' strategy when it comes to trade contractors and suppliers.
Durham Business School has calculated that Esh benefited the local economy by around £357m in 2007.
DBS has just completed its first phase of a two-year study into the economic value of Esh’s policy to support regional suppliers and contractors.
The policy is central to Esh and its subsidiary companies including Lumsden & Carroll Construction, Dunelm Property Services, Dunelm Homes, Deerness Fencing, Wilkinson Facilities Services and Sones Landscaping.
Professor Rob Dixon, Dean & Professor of Management Accounting at DBS said: "The findings clearly show that Esh Group, through employing a conscientious commercial strategy has delivered significant financial benefit to the economic territory in which it is based."
