Corporate Governance

Dedicated to Serve the Construction Industry

Roots Group UK is committed to duly and professionally maintaining the declared objectives of being the partner of choice for large-scale construction projects across the world.
From our modest beginnings in the early 1980s, through growth and downturns over almost four decades of service, we have always been the construction project’s most reliable partner. Through two restructurings and several additions to our Group, we have strived to build a business steeped in clear governance. Transparency and accountability are applied equally across the board, throughout our Group’s 20+ subsidiaries.
Our businesses, assets, acquisitions and investments are overseen by our Board of Directors, supported by strong leadership and committed managers, to deliver a sustainable and improved performance. RGUK’s Distribution, Manufacturing and Design and Build subsidiaries are independently managed allowing us to measure the success of each subsidiary according to its own business objectives.
