Our Commitment to Health and Safety

As a professional industrial and commercial 3-in-1 contractor, working at height is our most common residual safety risk. We cannot stress enough how important health and safety are to us.

Quite frankly, it is the backbone of our organisation and the rock-solid foundations we’ve successfully built our business on. We appreciate that this can come at a cost, but at the same time, you are getting excellent value for money for a specialised service that cuts no corners and does everything by the book.

We do this to protect the well-being of our workforce and maintain our first-class reputation as a diligent contractor that provides a high-quality service both on and off the building site. This is reaffirmed by our continued success in the NFRC’s annual roofing awards, where we have been year-on-year winners of their Gold Award since 2016.


We are very well established and highly experienced in the commercial and industrial industry,
with a wealth of positive testimonials from our previous clientele. Read our five star Google reviews here >


Retain Limited & the Royal Marines Charity

Retain Limited is incredibly proud to work closely with the Royal Marines Charity (RMA). This fantastic charitable organisation aims to provide a lifetime of support to the Royal Marines Family by whatever means required.


The RMA has grown professionally over the last few years, which was initially established through personal connections from our very own management team here at Retain Limited.


With many of our employees previously serving in the Royal Marines, including our Founder and Director Jamie Gibbs, we endeavour to provide employment opportunities to help other former Royal Marines re-adjust to the lifestyle of a UK civilian.


We also strive to help educate, train and create bespoke career pathways tailored to individual skill sets to enable and encourage a successful and fulfilling life post-service.
