J Tomlinson creates 10 jobs as it expands to larger base

Growing construction services company J Tomlinson has opened a new West Midlands headquarters following a period of rapid expansion in the region.

The company has transferred its West Midlands base from a site in Birmingham to larger offices in London Road, Canwell, near Sutton Coldfield.

The move follows a number of significant contract wins and an expansion in the number of staff employed in the region by the construction, refurbishment, repairs and maintenance, mechanical and electrical engineering, facilities management, and energy efficiency and renewables firm.

In addition to recent expansion, the firm is set to create around a further 10 jobs.

J Tomlinson CEO Mark Davis said: “J Tomlinson has worked in the West Midlands for many years, and on the back of a growing portfolio of projects and an increasing reputation in the region, opened an initial base in Birmingham last year,”

“Since then, as a result of further expansion, the company has outgrown the space and we are delighted to have opened a new headquarters at Canwell near Sutton Coldfield which will allow us to continue to serve our existing clients and to work with additional public and private clients in the West Midlands as we continue to broaden our portfolio.”

To coincide with the opening of the headquarters, J Tomlinson has been recruiting locally in the West Midlands and currently has new positions for a quantity surveyor and an assistant quantity surveyor, a site manager, an estimator and a trainee administrator, having recently appointed a range of other posts.

J Tomlinson, which is based in Nottingham and works across the West Midlands, East Midlands and Yorkshire, increased its turnover from £54m in 2014 to £84m in 2016. It employs more than 400 people.

The new office is headed by J Tomlinson construction managing director Martin Gallagher and offers the full range of services provided by the company.
