A CONSTRUCTION company is laying the foundations for success after winning major UK contracts worth around £100,000.
Since 2012, Stone Technical Services’ growth has surpassed managers’ expectations with turnover at around £2m – predicted to reach £2.5m later this year.
The Darlington-based firm, which specialises in restoration and maintenance work on everything from small, community churches to landmarks, has secured the contracts to carry out repairs on buildings in London, Wales and West Yorkshire.
Stone has also created five new jobs, taking staff numbers to 35, and the firm is on target to increase its workforce this year.
In the Capital, it has been appointed to complete an inspection of the church spire and portico at St Margaret’s Church, Lothbury. While in Wales, it is carrying out restoration work on Roch Castle in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire. In Wakefield, West Yorkshire, Stone is repairing the 14th Century Chantry Bridge which spans the River Calder.
The company, which aims to complete all three projects in July, has also opened a new Edinburgh office to add to its sites in London, Middlesex and Cheshire and its HQ in Darlington.
MD of Stone Technical Services, Dave Stone, said: “This recent batch of new projects – up and down the country – is really boosting our planned growth and our team feel very privileged to work on such an unusual variety of structures.”
