Roofclad Systems, Birtley-based specialists in the design and installation of roofing and cladding systems, are planning to expand into Yorkshire with the creation of an office and warehouse in Leeds. The new base will allow the company to get firmer foothold in the North of England and Yorkshire areas.
Its turnover is set to exceed £6 million and it has more than 50 full-time staff. Over the last year, Roofclad has continue to pick up a number of major roofing contracts in the Yorkshire area, with the most recent one being a £250,000 roofing contract for Rosti at Stamford Bridge.
“We get a lot of enquiries from Yorkshire and beyond which, until now, we have serviced from our base in the North East, so it just makes sense to set up an office further South,” said Alex Tilley, managing director.
The new office will offer Roofclad 900 sq ft office space and 2,500 sq ft warehouse space. “The office is in a far better location than our Birtley base in terms of its access to motorways, being located south of Leeds and near the M62/M1 corridors and it is also big enough to give us scope for future expansion,” explained Alex.
Speaking of the future, Alex added: “We are committed to creating new jobs – starting with a contracts manager, an office administrator/secretary and some direct operatives, which we hope to appoint in the not so distant future, depending on new projects coming in.”
Roofclad has completed several contracts in the area, including one at Matthew Charlton in Hexham for a roof-over cladding contract, new build works at Bridge End Industrial Estate in Hexham that involved a new roof and wall cladding and a felting contract for Newcastle City Council at Hawthorn Primary School.
