Introducing Breyer Group
Breyer Group was originally founded as an asphalt roofing contractor by Fred Breyer in 1956 and our construction company is still family owned today and is currently managed by Tim Breyer.
With our family values still firmly in place we always put people at the heart of everything we do. It is our intention to consistently provide our residents with a positive experience when making repairs to their homes, and to actively contribute to improving the fabric of the local communities in which they live.
This includes delivering life changing initiatives such as our antisocial behaviour schemes to reduce crime and vandalism and, through our employment and skills plans, our award winning apprenticeship scheme which, since its inception, has delivered over 100 apprenticeships.
Whether it’s a regeneration project, a long-term programme or a multimillion pound partnering framework, we will always tailor our approach to suit the residents and the local community.
With over 400 employees and over 60 years’ experience specialising in roofing, construction, responsive repairs and maintenance, we are extremely proud to be one of the industry’s leading principle contractors, operating from our headquarters in Romford, Essex and our network of locally based offices. Our ISO 9001:2008 certified quality management system reinforces our focus on excellent levels of customer service and satisfaction.
