Thomas Graham

Case Study: Thomas Armstrong (Holdings) Ltd Flimby, West Cumbria


Thomas Armstrong Group has over 190 years of expertise and growth in the construction sector, manufacturing quality building products since 1830 with a strong Cumbrian heritage and Head Office situated proudly in Flimby, West Cumbria. The group has a turnover in excess of £135m and has around 560 employees. As a significant business in the sector and region, the group had a long track record of working with large Top 10 audit firms.

Why move?

The group wanted a different approach, they wanted a relationship that was built on trust and passion, they didn’t want a relationship that was solely based on the transaction. The move to Armstrong Watson in 2019 offered a new level of proactivity, responsiveness, collaboration and all-round professional service, without sacrificing the quality and expertise. The move to Armstrong Watson also gave the group the opportunity to put their trust in a local firm that also had a strong Cumbrian heritage that offered a different approach to their audit and professional advisory requirements, with a unique large firm capability but strong local firm feel and delivery.
