A little bit of history…
It all began in the late 1950s when a young Brian Sotham, having completed his engineering training with Mackay Engineering in Cambridge went on to start his own company. As the company grew in stature and reputation, it was acquired by William Sindall, the Cambridge builder and developer in 1967 and went on to carry out new and refurbishment contracts throughout; East Anglia, London and the Home Counties.
William Sindall merged with Morgan Lovell, a London-based office fit out specialist, in 1994 to form Morgan Sindall PLC. The opportunity arose for a management buyout of Sotham Engineering in 1998. Sotham is now owned by Sotham Group Ltd, which is in turn owned by its shareholders.
The company has generated and retained healthy profits since becoming independent, has no borrowings and benefits from a strong balance sheet to support ongoing work and future development.
