STS reveals its most successful year

Building and structure experts Stone Technical Services (STS) are now on course to increase turnover to £3.5m in 2016, after their most successful year to date.

The County Durham-based store has secured almost £1m of new work which will take the company ahead of schedule for their planned growth, and help create a number of new jobs.

The firm, which is made up of four divisions specialising in lighting protection, restoration, maintenance and facilities management and conservation, has secured work across the North East, London and Scotland.

The company have secured jobs on Scotland’s Forth Road Bridge, London’s Oval Cricket ground and the University of York in the North of the country.

Managing director of STS, Dave Stone, said: “The projects we’ve secured use all of our divisions and our fantastic mix of skills- from the very technical to the heritage- allows us to work on a vast range of structures.

“All of our divisions are thriving which is contributing to a real growth for STS and this in turn is creating new jobs for people at our Darlington HQ.”
