Our Journey

J Tomlinson is built on strong roots, having been founded in the 1950s by the Tomlinson family as an electrical contracting business focused on commercial contracts.


The business steadily expanded from its base at Beeston, near Nottingham, and by the 1980s the firm had become a substantial regional mechanical and electrical contractor as a result of organic growth and the acquisition of a local mechanical company.

In the 1990s, long-term owners David Adams and Steve Kirkland developed the company still further to provide a complete range of building solutions and services.

By the mid-2010s, J Tomlinson had flourished to become a major operator in its sector after achieving significant growth.

Now offering a fully integrated solution, covering the whole building lifecycle from construction to refurbishment, repairs and maintenance, mechanical and electrical services and facilities management. Working across the East and West Midlands and Yorkshire our teams are fully committed to providing a highly professional and personalised service, tailored to customer’s needs.

In 2016, the company registered a record turnover of £74 million and employed more than 400 people.
