On Tuesday 16th October 2012, the whole of the Ferrovial Agroman UK and Ireland team gathered at the London Transport Museum to celebrate the company’s 10th Anniversary of working in the British Isles and the preview of the long awaited Ferrovial Agroman UK and Ireland website, www.faukie.com.
The event was a celebration of 10 years of growth and success as well as a good opportunity to welcome all 370 employees of the company who work across the different parts of the business in the British Isles (London, Dublin, Belfast and Bradford Offices as well as project offices).
The evening started with a presentation that took all present on the journey which began ten years ago and looked to what the company had managed to achieve since then along with future business prospects in the British-Irish market.
The development of the new website has been a collaborative project between London and Madrid and the unveiling of the page was no different. The idea was born from a need to make Ferrovial Agroman a recognisable British-Irish company in this market. There is a great need to be able to clearly communicate to interested parties on where our UK and Ireland operations sit within Ferrovial Agroman and indeed Ferrovial. This new portal will allow the company to communicate its important achievements and demonstrate its hard work in all areas: Health and Safety, Quality, Environment, Community Investment, Training, Development and Innovation. The benefits are also vast from a recruitment and supply chain perspective. Information on both of these are now available to potential candidates and suppliers. The modern and fresh look and feel of www.faukie.com (operational from 1st November 2012) is in keeping with Ferrovial Agroman’s clearly defined corporate image.
Ferrovial Agroman and The London Transport Museum
The London Transport Museum runs a wide range of activities and programmes which support its important work as a heritage preservation and educational charity. Ferrovial Agroman became a Corporate Member of the charity at the beginning of 2012 and is proud to be able to contribute to their inspiring safety awareness and employability programmes for young people across the capital.
The museum itself hosts an incredible amount of transport history under one roof. Its collection began in the 1920s, when the London General Omnibus Company decided to preserve two Victorian horse buses and an early motorbus for future generations. It now has an unrivalled collection of transport, artwork and holds Thought Leadership seminars which analyse current transport themes and addresses future transport developments and planning.
