- Fulcrum Utility Services has signed a one year extension to its framework contract with British Gas Business to continue to provide new connections to British Gas customers across England, Scotland and Wales to November 2015, with an option to extend for a further year until November 2016. Chief executive Martin Donnachie said: "We are delighted to announce our framework contract extension with British Gas until at least November 2015. The contract extension results from the work Fulcrum and British Gas have done together to improve customer service levels and I look forward to working with British Gas to explore ways in which we can further enhance our delivery performance." BGB business delivery manager Mark Pomeroy said: "British Gas Business are pleased to extend the commercial contract in place with Fulcrum for a further 12 months based on the improvements delivered in customer service."

The announcement of the BGB framework extension follows on from a number of recent high value contract wins for Fulcrum, including:

· The installation of gas, water and electricity connections to a new mixed use development in Crosshands, Llanelli, West Wales. The £658k project will involve the construction of over 3 kilometres of gas, water and electricity infrastructure.
