North East Contracts was founded on the 5th August 2002 by its current Managing Director John Alexander Lyons. John has been working in the roofing industry for over 35 years and previously as a site coordinator for Gilcomston Construction before it ceased trading. With John's previous experience, reputation and the help of his eldest son Iain the company grew rapidly and on the 31st March 2003 became a Limited company.
In April 2003 his son Christopher joined the company and soon after John's wife Sheila as the company began to grow. Although his daughter Jacqueline had been assisting him ocassionally while setting up the business in the early stages it was not until July 2004 that she became a Full Time employee. This was the remaining link in having John's entire family working with him as part of North East Contracts Limited.
The company continued to grow and enroled its first trainee's in 2005 and in 2007 with the help of ConstructionSkills and Scottish Building its first Apprentices. In November 2009 the company outgrew its business premises and moved into purpose built Offices and Warehouse at Kirkton Industrial Estate.
The company continues to priorities business development and the development of its team. It is also committed to keeping up-to-date with new products and improving the level of service they offer their customers.
