The company provides shoring and related services to a range of construction sectors.

Donovan’s responsibilities will include overseeing Groundforce’s projects across Europe and internationally.

He joins the business after stepping down as Managing Director of temporary roadway business TPA – a sister company to Groundforce, both of which are owned by Vp plc. At TPA, Donovan supervised the diversification of the business into new markets.

Donovan said, “I am delighted to be given the opportunity to bring my experience across to Groundforce, leaving TPA in very capable hands.

“Groundforce is a dynamic business which prides itself on market leading products and service. The business has a wealth of experience and knowledge, and I am looking forward to working with the team.”

Prior to his positions at TPA and Groundforce, Donovan held a number of senior industry roles at companies such as Havelock Europa plc.

IRN recently reported on a project in Brussels, Belgium, in which Groundforce was involved.
