About Cruden

About Cruden Group

Group Structure & Breadth

We are the Cruden Group – one of Scotland’s largest development and construction groups - and we're proud to still be independent after 70 years. Since 1943, the Cruden Group has built or modernised over 130,000 properties. Over the years, we’ve worked a lot with local authorities, Registered Social Landlords and Government bodies. Our experience also includes the private sector, with approximately 250 homes developed and marketed by Cruden Homes each year. But, we go beyond housing – we deliver extensive construction activity within the commercial, leisure, health, retail and education sectors. 

We’re proud that our construction companies, Cruden Building and Hart, stand out amongst the competitors. They’re different as they retain a combined, direct workforce, one that’s made up of over 500 employees. This is important to the business, as it allows for complete quality control across our portfolio. And it hasn’t gone unnoticed by our clients, which is why so many keep coming back to Cruden.

As well as our core activities, we also have Cruden Investments, our operational holding company, who invest in commercial property and a variety of companies in other sectors. This lets us create a more diverse portfolio to support our key areas of business. 

It’s this unique offering in the marketplace that makes us different. We believe our strength and experience, coupled with our commitment to innovation has earned us a reputation as a solid, accomplished and forward-thinking group of companies. Our reputation is important to us, which is why these are values that we’re proud to share with employees and clients alike. That way, we can continue to share success, now and in the future.
