July 6, 2018
Integrated building solutions company J Tomlinson has recorded a £87 million turnover for the year 2016/2017 – up £13 million on the previous year.
The Nottingham-based company, with a West Midlands office in Canwell, generated sales of £87 million in the year ending September 2017. In the previous year, the firm recorded a turnover of £74 million.
CEO Mark Davis said: “J Tomlinson is on a journey of sustainable growth and the latest accounts, which have just been filed, reflect the continued success of the company across its sectors in construction, refurbishment, mechanical and electrical services, facilities management and social housing repairs, maintenance and regeneration.
“We genuinely believe that our people are our greatest asset. Their hard work, commitment and vision has been the most important facet in supporting the development of the business.
“We plan to continue investing in our team, building relationships with new clients and strengthening our links with existing clients and customers, many of whom we have worked with for several years as a trusted partner. I am pleased to report that the projected forecast for 2018 is a further increase in turnover as a result of this approach.”
During the 12 months to September 2017, the Beeston-based company won a number of key contracts and contract extensions including £1.8 million worth of upgrades and repair and maintenance work on properties for South Yorkshire Housing Association, a £7.25 million contract to provide mechanical and electrical engineering services for a new 922-bed student accommodation scheme in Coventry, and a contract to build a specialist supported housing development in Coventry.
J Tomlinson was named Nottinghamshire Company of the Year at the Nottingham Post Business Awards 2017. In addition, the business was part of the team that won numerous accolades for the London Road Fire Station in Nottingham, including two awards at the East Midlands RICS Awards.
Last September J Tomlinson moved up to 52nd place, from 66th place the previous year, on an annual list naming Nottinghamshire’s top 200 businesses, as a result of its continued growth.
During the last financial year, the company, which employs around 420 people, completed a refurbishment scheme at its headquarters in Lilac Grove, Beeston, to introduce a raft of improvement and efficiency measures, as a mark of its investment and commitment to its headquarters and its team.
J Tomlinson, which was founded in Nottingham the 1950s, works primarily across the Midlands, Yorkshire and Northern and Central England.
The company provides a range of sustainable building solutions including refurbishment, repairs and maintenance, engineering services, extra care construction, renewable energy, and facilities management, working across a range of key sectors including extra care, healthcare, blue light, social housing and local government.
