Event infrastructure specialist GL Events UK facilitated more than 400 separate events with temporary structures and services in 2014, including the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles and the British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
It also increased its level of activity internationally, taking on projects such as the FIA Formula E Championship series where it facilitated full overlay, including design, construction and interior fit-out.
This year the company launched a new UK division, GL Events Polaris Ice, which specialises in installing temporary ice rinks and semi-permanent skating facilities. It has already secured numerous projects.
The company employs around 100 staff in the UK and owns 150,000sqm of temporary structures, with access to a further 400,000sqm of in-house stock, and 90,000 tiered seats. Its 2014 financial results exceeded expectations, with group revenue up 16%, accompanied by a 34.7% rise in operating profit.
