Formed in 2012 as a highways, engineering and construction specialist, Cormac is an arm's length management organisation (almo) wholly-owned by Cornwall Council.
Today, we are one of the most highly-regarded, trusted and well known companies in the South West. We are committed to delivering cost effective and innovative solutions which add value to our communities, clients, partners and our people.
We provide highway and environmental design and maintenance services, design and construction of major highway schemes, and facilities services including property maintenance, cleaning and caretaking services.
We also provide fleet management and maintenance, quarried stone and aggregates and laboratory services. We deliver these services to Cornwall Council, other public bodies, and a portfolio of private clients including major civil engineering contractors and consulting engineers.
Our operating model is designed to deliver value-added services and to trade in the open marketplace, generating a financial return to the council.
The success of our arm’s length model has seen us adopt a wider range of services, such as facilities management and even social care.
We employ over 1,600 people across the county and beyond. In 2015/16, we returned over £6million to Cornwall Council, which helped to offset budget pressures and supported frontline services for local residents.
We also spent over £16million with Cornish small and medium-sized enterprises, worked with 105 community partnerships, and supported community groups providing 100,000 volunteer hours’ worth £1.45million.
