About Bilby plc

About Us

Bilby was formed in 2015 to acquire businesses in the gas and general building services industries. The Group’s strategy is to create an organisation that will meet the continued demand for high quality improvement and maintenance services in public sector housing.

Bilby currently owns 100% of P & R Installation Co Ltd (P & R), Purdy Contracts Ltd (Purdy), DCB (Kent) Ltd (DCB) and Spokemead Maintenance Ltd (Spokemead), established and award winning providers of general building, gas maintenance and electrical services. Bilby works predominately with local authorities and housing associations across London and South East England.

P & R was acquired by Bilby at IPO in March 2015. P & R was founded in 1977 by Bilby’s Deputy Executive Chairman, Phil Copolo, as a gas installation company. Since then P & R's services have grown to include general building services.

Bilby acquired Purdy in July 2015. Purdy was formed in 1984 as a building and property services contractor, and is now resourced with specialist teams in heating, electrical services, property services and microgeneration systems.

Bilby acquired DCB and Spokemead in April 2016. Spokemead has been established for over 35 years and now has a highly skilled and highly motivated workforce of over 30 fully qualified electricians, specialising in electrical installation and maintenance of local authority owned housing stock. DCB was established in 1998 and is renowned for delivering high-quality building, refurbishment and maintenance services throughout Kent, Sussex, Essex and London.
