Norfolk based steelwork contractor DGT Steel and Cladding has a new owner, former Contracts Director Barry Heyne.

Mr Heyne, 44, has assumed full control of the company, taking the role of Managing Director and Chairman after a buyout of the other existing shareholders.

Founded in 1990, DGT has been based in Lenwade, near Norwich, since 1999 and since then annual turnover has increased from £10M to £27M. This year that figure is expected to increase still further to £32M and the business plan is to grow this to £42M over the next three years.

“This is an exciting time for DGT. The past few years have seen us expand our capabilities on both design and production. We are continuing to invest heavily in the company, not only to safeguard the jobs of our current employees but those of the new apprentices we are recruiting to meet the demands of our growing orders book,” said Mr Heyne.
